Pulmonary Postdoctoral Training Program
The Lung Program is a hub for training and developing the next generation of pulmonary scientists and physician investigators. Investigators from Pulmonary Research have active and productive interactions with local colleagues at the University of Southern California and UCLA, as well as with top programs throughout the world.
The training is focused on developing young biomedical researchers into independent academic investigators dedicated to studies in respiratory diseases. Cedars-Sinai has been in an academic growth phase, with a large influx of investigators all with well-recognized respiratory research programs. Importantly, these investigators are highly interactive and dedicated to training the future generation of respiratory researchers and bring an established track record of training to the Women's Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai. This training program is directed by Paul Noble, MD, who is the chair of the Department of Medicine and director of the Women's Guild Lung Institute.
Positions are available for scientists to train in basic and translational respiratory research. Trainees have a structured three-year curriculum based primarily in laboratory research and complemented with didactic courses, seminars and workshops. The coursework provides instruction on topics such as research integrity and bioethics, biostatistics and grantsmanship. Trainees have a primary mentor (often coupled with a co-mentor) to guide their research training in five areas:
- Inflammation and host defense
- Remodeling and fibrosis
The Pulmonary Research Training Program is seeking motivated, talented individuals with relevant interests and experience to join our multidisciplinary team of researchers. Because a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Institutional Training Grant supports these positions, all applicants must have an MD, PhD, DVM, DDS or similar degree and must be a U.S. citizen or possess permanent residence status.
Please submit curriculum vitae (CV), a personal statement with a brief summary of research experience, a list of faculty of interest, approximate date of availability and three references to:
