Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Program Available Positions
The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Program is hiring researchers. Learn about our open positions below.
Research Fellowship Training Program
Led by Ken H. Cadwell, PhD and Lisa B, Malter, MD, the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Program trains future leaders with an interest in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research. Each year, we accept one fellow, who must be a postgrad and have completed either an internal medicine residency or pediatric residency training program.
The research fellow dedicates 90 percent effort toward research and 10 percent toward outpatient-based clinical activities. Fellows are matched to a faculty mentor based on the individual’s interest and availability of appropriate projects.
The goal of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Fellowship Training Program is to provide an immersive research experience to physicians interested in IBD. Upon completion of the program, the fellow has an appreciation for the process that has contributed to disease knowledge, is prepared for future research opportunities, has strengthened their qualifications as a physician and scientist, and has established a network of mentors and colleagues. IBD research fellows are expected to present their work nationally.
This training follows a three-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited or non–ACGME-accredited internal medicine residency or pediatric residency training and provides advanced training in a postgraduate year 4 (PGY-4) position, scheduled to begin July 1, 2023, through June 30, 2024, at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
