• 2015 Postdoctoral Recruitment Symposium

    Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation announces the third biennial Postdoctoral Recruitment Symposium from September 24 – 26, 2015. This symposium will provide a unique opportunity for outstanding senior graduate students from top graduate programs to meet and interview with faculty at Cincinnati Children’s. “By final invitation only”, we will offer up to 20 students an expense paid visit so they will have the opportunity to meet with Cincinnati Children’s faculty and scholars who have common research interests, or who are engaged in research programs of interest to the student. Students will present their pre-doctoral research through platform and poster sessions. In addition, we will sponsor social activities to give the students the opportunity to meet informally with faculty and postdoctoral fellows at Cincinnati Children’s and to see some of what Cincinnati offers.

    To Apply

    To be eligible, graduate students must expect to complete their PhD dissertation research between October 2014 and December 2015 from a North American University. We are asking faculty to nominate their best senior graduate students to attend the next symposium. For more information please view the letter to faculty.

    US citizens and green card holders are preferred but we will also consider outstanding visa holders. Nominations are due by May 22, 2015 and must be submitted on behalf of the student by his/her dissertation advisor, department chair, or Dean by email to: Julia.Limanowski@cchmc.org.

    Include with the completed applicationa letter of nomination, a CV, a half-page abstract of the student’s thesis research, and a summary of career goals and areas of research interest.
