Translational Immunology Center Education
Faculty in NYU Langone’s Translational Immunology Center lead dynamic training programs for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
PhD Training Programs in Immunology and Inflammation
Training the next generation of immunologists is a key mission of the Translational Immunology Center. As such, we work closely with PhD training programs in immunology and inflammation and molecular oncology and tumor immunology, which are supported by T32 training grants from the National Institutes of Health.
These immunology training programs prepare doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows to excel in immunology research and include rigorous graduate curricula and a range of events including an external speaker seminar series, a weekly works in progress seminar series in which trainees present their ongoing work, weekly journal club presentations given by trainees and faculty, and annual retreats.
The Bernard Levine Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology
Established through the generosity of the late Bernard B. Levine, MD, the Bernard Levine Postdoctoral Fellowship in Immunology seeks to promote immunology research at NYU Grossman School of Medicine by supporting the most promising postdoctoral investigators. The award is given to those who have the potential for future independence and leadership in the field of immunology. Two fellowships are awarded each year.
Applicants must meet the following criteria:
- hold a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD) or its equivalent
- be engaged in basic or translational research in immunology under the guidance of an NYU Grossman School of Medicine faculty member
- be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or a foreign applicant with appropriate visa documentation valid throughout the course of the fellowship
Priority will be given to applicants who have obtained their doctoral degree within five years of applying. Continuous participation of the candidate and the mentor in the NYU Langone immunology community will be taken into consideration.
The next fellowship start date is September 1, 2023.
How to Apply
A complete application comprises the following materials:
- up-to-date NIH biosketch with full bibliography and current and previous sources of support
