The first step is receiving an offer from a faculty member in the Department of Microbiology. This offer requires concurrence from the School of Medicine and other approving bodies within the University of Washington, and can take several weeks for US citizens. For international postdoctoral fellows, the visa process adds an additional 6-12 months to complete the appointment. (International Postdoc Visa Process)
