Fellowship Opportunities for MD and PhD Scientists:
Training Program in Cardiovascular Research

The Molecular Cardiology Research Institute at Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University School of Medicine is actively recruiting highly qualified MD and PhD scientists in the training phase of their careers for an NIH-sponsored Training Program in Cardiovascular Research.


The major goal of this program is to train postdoctoral MD and PhD fellows in either (a) basic research involving cellular and molecular investigation in the cardiovascular system, or (b) translational cardiovascular research, through the application of current molecular and cellular principles to important clinical questions in cardiovascular medicine.


The fellowship program provides extensive training in state-of-the-art approaches to the study of molecular, cellular, and translational cardiovascular research. Each August, three new positions are available. Trainees are provided with full support for up to three years.  As a federally-funded program, only US residents and permanent residents are eligible. Minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.


The Program is especially focused in five areas of basic and translational cardiovascular science:


  • Vascular Biology                                                                      
  • Electrophysiology
  • Cardiomyocyte Biology and Heart Failure
  • Signal Transduction Pathways in the Cardiovascular System
  • Translational Cardiovascular Genomics and Genetics

For ALL INQUIRIES and any questions about this fellowship opportunity, please contact the CVTG Program administrator via email:  mcri@tuftsmedicalcenter.org


Applications are accepted throughout the year.
