    A post-doctoral student is a student who has already completed a doctorate, and is continuing his/her studies.

    a fellow is a member of a teaching staff at a school that is also studying or working on her/his PhD - basically a student, that finished the school but is remaining on staff with minimal teaching schedule and devoting the majority of his/her time to research. The term fellow has a more specific term at some colleges, like Oxford, Cambridge and Trinity college
