Empowering The Next Generation Of Scientific Leaders

In 2020, Genentech launched the Postdoc Hiring Initiative, a game-changing program aimed at attracting top PH.D. graduates who embody high scientific achievement, resilience in overcoming challenges and an aspiration to diversify the scientific community. Unlike traditional hiring processes, this initiative goes beyond specific job postings for individual labs, allowing applicants the freedom to select three potential Genentech postdoc mentors with whom they are most interested in working.

Since its inception, the Postdoc Hiring Initiative has successfully hired a remarkable number of postdocs, bringing exceptional scientific talent to Genentech. One shining example is Riley Suhar, a Biomaterials Scientist and Engineer. After completing her PH.D. at Stanford University, Riley joined Genentech to pursue ground-breaking research on the neural protection of retinal ganglion cells and the development of materials for sustained drug delivery to the eye for the treatment of glaucoma.

In 2023, the Genentech Research & Early Development Postdoc Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Team at Genentech was formed. This allows postdocs to participate in D&I work at Genentech for a multitude of reasons, including promoting equity, personal growth, broadening professional networks, expanding personal values and mentorship opportunities. Through their dedication and collaboration, they are making a tangible impact on diversity, inclusion and equity in the scientific community, setting the stage for a more inclusive and innovative future.

Joining the Genentech postdoc program means actively contributing to measurable progress towards a more inclusive and innovative future.
