Organ Design and Engineering Post-doctoral Training Program

We are pleased to announce openings in our Organ Design and Engineering Post-doctoral Training Program (ODET).  This T32 training grant is funded by NIBIB and is based at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, with mentors from Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess, Boston Children’s Hospital and MIT, Boston, Massachusetts.

Our goal is to provide multidisciplinary research training to post-doctoral fellows.  Individuals accepted to this program will work in laboratories of Harvard and/or MIT faculty.  An important feature of the program is additional training in an area of expertise outside of their primary research field. Working at the intersection of engineering and developmental/regenerative biology, trainees will learn a new language in translational medicine and ultimately develop a common dialect that effectively bridges different disciplines to create innovative organ designs and find engineering solutions in medicine.  The program utilizes a dual mentor model where fellows spend time in the laboratories of two mentors and are able to facilitate active communication across laboratories, institutions and geographic boundaries.

We are now actively evaluating candidates and ask you to bring this to the attention of any individuals who would be appropriate for the Program. The deadline for applications is March 15, 2023, but earlier applications are welcome.  Trainees must be US citizens or permanent residents.  Candidates must have an MD or PhD to qualify.
