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” co-directed by Dr. Ronald Dalman and Dr. John Cooke.

Eligibility per NIH policy:

Brief Program Description: The program will train 6 postdoctoral fellows annually using (1) a structured curriculum, (2) a well-defined mentorship, and (3) an internal and external evaluation process. The program includes regular monitoring of the trainee, mentor, and program, with clearly articulated expectations for each. Trainees accepted into this program will have identified a mentor. By their acceptance of the award, the trainee and the mentor will agree to participate in the mandatory educational activities of the training program and its evaluation processes. All fellows will 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 will be conditional on evidence of research progress and submission of individual grants for a third year. 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.
