Postdoctoral Research Program
Your AIU Postdoctoral Research program at AIU will be a custom-made program, designed just for you by you and your advisor. This flexibility to meet your needs is seldom found in other distance research programs.
The goal of the postdoctoral program is to create opportunities to share innovative research with the world through publishing, collaboration, special projects and coauthoring to contribute to the Scholars community and the world. Postdoctoral study at Atlantic International University creates a unique opportunity for you, the Scholar, to develop innovative research in one of our three schools; Business and Economics, Social and Human Studies or Science and Engineering that is geared towards the 2030 UNESCO goals for sustainable development. The goal of the postdoctoral program is not only to train and research but also to make significant contributions to your life as well as the university’s educational and research missions.
