Biomedical & Biological Sciences DVM seeking Ph.D. program
NIH T32 Comparative Medicine Program Vacancy
In response to the national need to increase the number of well-trained veterinarian-scientists to meet societal needs in biomedical research and other important fields of public health, Cornell University's College of Veterinary Medicine leads in creating opportunities for all veterinarians interested in pursuing a PhD. The Comparative Medicine program is looking for veterinarians and fourth-year DVM students of a U.S. accredited School of Veterinary Medicine to apply. Because this program is funded by the National Institutes of Health, trainees must be U.S. citizens, noncitizen nationals, or have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence.
The Comparative Medicine Program has connections across Cornell University, including with internationally-recognized research programs in the physical sciences, the life sciences, and engineering. Research programs provide opportunities for cutting-edge research in a broad spectrum of biomedical sciences with special strengths in cancer biology, medical genetics, infectious diseases, and reproductive studies.
