The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce applications for the MacMillan Laboratory Research Fellowship program. Recognizing the importance of the declining number of laboratory-based physician scientists trained in clinical hematology/oncology, the MacMillan Laboratory Research Fellowship will nurture young physician scientists during their early, creative years to yield the next generation of leaders in translational hematology/oncology research.
Following a rigorous selection process, fellows will initially complete their clinical training in hematology and/or oncology followed by intense laboratory based training in a closely mentored but independent research training period. Fellows will be provided laboratory space, resources and support to initiate their own independent research program with guidance provided by a mentorship committee. Although Fellows will perform minimal clinical outpatient duties to fulfill certification requirements, Fellows will not have any formal administrative responsibilities to ensure protected research time. Fellows are appointed for a three-year term with the expectation that it will be extended to additional years as needed.
Since support is provided, in part, through a federally-funded training program, only United States residents and permanent citizens are eligible to apply. Applicants are encouraged to express their interest by submitting an application after submission through the national match application process. Applicants will be invited for interviews and will give a formal seminar on their past work and future areas of research interest. Decisions and notifications will be made prior to submission of an applicant’s match list for Fellowship Programs.
Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Ben Park, MD, PhD (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional details. Apply now
