Training Grant Positions
The Musculoskeletal Research Training Program provides opportunities for postdoctoral fellows, predoctoral (Ph.D.) students and medical students in basic and clinical musculoskeletal research projects. The scope of research projects spans orthopedics, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, endocrinology, epidemiology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and genetics.
All trainees are expected to make significant contributions to the biomedical literature and to participate in Musculoskeletal Research Workshops and Journal Clubs. Postdoctoral fellows are also expected to submit a grant application by the end of their training period for independent research activities. Contact Jennifer Westendorf with questions.
Predoctoral appointees must have received a baccalaureate degree by the beginning date of their NRSA appointment, and be enrolled in Mayo's program leading to a Ph.D. in science.
Postdoctoral appointees must have received, as of the beginning date of the NRSA appointment, a Ph.D., M.D. or comparable doctoral degree. Appointees must also be a citizen or non-citizen national of the United States or must have been legally admitted as a permanent resident.
