The major objective of this program is to provide state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research training of the highest quality in investigative dermatology. Because of the expertise of the training faculty there will be a greater emphasis on cutaneous oncology, inflammatory disorders and molecular dermatology. The program will offer trainees the opportunity to develop areas of interest at the molecular, biochemical, cellular and organ level of dermatology research.
We now have positions available in this NIAMS funded training program. The participating faculty aims for individualized career-building for post doctoral candidates who have a definite commitment to an academic career in cutaneous biology. The program rests on a foundation of 13 trainers from the Department of Dermatology and five other Departments with strong training record and well funded research programs emphasizing skin biology. Areas of investigation include: mechanisms and preventions of skin cancers (both melanoma and non melanoma), pigment cell biology, cutaneous T cell lymphoma, immunodermatology and cell signaling mechanisms.
Candidates will have an M.D., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D., and will be a US citizen or permanent resident.
Interested Ph.D. candidates should apply to Hasan Mukhtar, Ph.D., Vice Chair for Research (608) 263-3927 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
