Hematology Research Training Program
We strongly encourage applications from minorities
Thank you for your interest in the Hematology Research Training Program of the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Transplantation.
There are two main paths to Traineeship on this NIH-funded T32: Fellowship and direct traineeship for other postdocs.
Trainee Fellows: Many of our most promising Fellows are supported as T32 Trainees in their second and third years of Fellowship. Being a Trainee during Fellowship intensifies the research training and preparation for an academic career based in research in Hematology. [If you do wish to apply for our academic Heme-Onc Fellowship Program, which includes both clinical and research training, please see 'Fellowship Program']
Other Postdoctoral Trainees: This Program is also open to PhD applicants who wish to obtain research training in our Program, or to MD applicants who do not wish to receive clinical training at our institution. Those individuals may apply directly to the Hematology Research Training Program via the instructions below.
Our Program is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is intended to provide an intensive research training experience that will lead to an academic career that involves Hematology-related research. In this Program, trainees will work for two or three years with an expert faculty mentor on a scientifically important research project. Our Program recognizes that many skills are needed to sustain a career as an independent and funded researcher, and it is designed with this in mind (see Goals). The University of Minnesota Medical School provides a large and resource-rich environment that is promotive of research skill development and academic career development.
The HOT Division is a research intensive group. We have world-leading programs in sickle disease, breast tumor biology, immunotherapy, signal transduction, vascular biology, stem cell biology, bone marrow transplantation, and hemostasis & thrombosis. These and other topic areas are available for trainee research.
Please note that we encourage the submission of applications with a deadline of March 1. However, we occasionally are able to consider applications after this.
