U Illinois Chicago Research Fellowship 2019-2020

We are now accepting applications for a research fellowship position at the University of Illinois at Chicago. It is a one-year salaried full-time research position in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (chicago.medicine.uic.edu/departments/aca...tments/orthopaedics/)

The research fellow plays an active role in basic science as well as clinical research with multiple members of the orthopaedic faculty at the University of Illinois including the department chairman, Dr. Mark Gonzalez, and the residency program director, Dr. Alfonso Mejia.

There are no clinical responsibilities, but the fellow is welcome to attend morning conferences, Grand Rounds, cadaver labs and sawbone workshops, and social events with the Illinois residents. You will learn a great deal about both research and Orthopaedics through working in the department among great teachers and residents. A majority of past fellows have successfully matched into an orthopaedic surgery residency position.

We would like the fellow to start by June 1st (though earlier is better) so that the previous fellow can train the new one.

If you are interested, please email the following to UICOrthoResearch2019 [at] gmail.com
- your CV - include your phone number and any board scores - official report not required but preferred
- personal statement
- photograph
- a brief statement explaining your interest in the research position

Please note, this position is NOT open to individuals who have matched into an NRMP residency/training program for the 2019-20 academic year or have any other contractual commitment through NRMP. We'll be accepting applications from now until 4 pm CST on Friday 3/15/19. Phone interviews will then be conducted and the position is expected to be filled early the following week. The current research fellow is available for any questions you may have about the position and can be reached at awaish [at] uic.edu. We will have a follow-up post once the position is filled.

Thank you and best of luck!
