Postdoctoral Fellowships Application Procedure
Guidelines for postdoctoral fellows supported on the training grant include:
(a) Ph.D. and/or M.D. degrees;
(b) prior research experience;
(c) superior letters of recommendation;
(d) commitment to the objectives of the program; and
(e) US citizenship or permanent residency status.
Prior exposure to pharmacology and/or cardiovascular research is not a prerequisite: we value trainees with diverse backgrounds for interactions with the interdisciplinary group of participants. The training program emphasizes basic laboratory investigation, but has clinical investigation for qualified trainees. The program is also very supportive of trainees from underrepresented minorities.
