Cardiovascular Institute

CVI Fellowship Training Program

Applications are accepted annually from January to April 15th for a July 1st start date, but additional positions occasionally open during the year, and the CVI encourages applicants to inquire about these potential extra positions. Please contact for more information.

Overview

The Cardiovascular Institute can fund up to six postdoctoral fellows for a period of two years each through the NIH T32 training grant “Mechanisms & Innovation in Vascular Disease” directed by Dr. Ronald Dalman.

Brief Program Description
This program trains a total of six fellows over two years in the following areas of vascular medicine & research: Vascular Reactivity & Thrombosis, Vascular Regeneration & Development, Metabolic or Lifestyle Influences on Vascular Outcomes, Proteomic Markers & Genetic Determinants of Vascular Disease, Gender & Ethnicity Differences in Vascular Disease, and Vascular Bioengineering. Twenty-nine faculty mentors from eighteen different departments within the School of Medicine and the University provide a variety of angles from which to address fundamental questions about vascular disease.

A structured curriculum, well-defined mentorship, and both internal and external evaluations ensure that fellows receive training in both research and career development to prepare them for independent careers. All fellows undergo a minimum two-year training period, with strong encouragement to submit individual research proposals (NRSA and AHA) for the following year(s). Support for a second year is conditional on evidence of research progress. Typically, a third year (or more) is necessary for the transition to independence. It is anticipated that in Year 1 the trainee and mentor will outline a career plan for transition to independence, which may include grant preparations for funding through a K08 mechanism or application to the existing K12.
