IPEP, the programmatic component of  the Office of the Vice President for Research’s postdoctoral fellowship program, includes personal navigation to UK and the research enterprise, dedicated support from the Proposal Development Office for grant development, mentoring to a career of academia, networking and inclusion opportunities, and other assistance from the research infrastructure.
