We will be interviewing for a research fellowship position is at the University of Illinois at Chicago. It is a one-year salaried full-time research position in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery ( ). The fellow primarily participates in clinical research, with opportunities to work on basic science projects as well, 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 (daily), Grand Rounds (weekly), sawbones 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, and we are seeking a candidate to continue on this success.

While the start time is flexible, we would like the fellow to start by June 1st (though earlier is better) so that the previous fellow can train the new one. We would encourage everyone to give the position serious consideration in the event of a Black Monday.

If you are interested, please email your CV (include your phone number and any board scores official report not required but preferred), personal statement for orthopaedics, photo (if available), and a brief statement explaining your interest in the research position to [ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ]. Please note, this position is not open to individuals who have matched into an NRMP residency/training program for the 2016-17 academic year or have any other contractual commitment through NRMP. We'll be accepting applications from now until 4 pm CST on Friday 3/18/16. Phone interviews will then be conducted and the position is expected to be filled early next week. We will have a follow up post once the position is filled.

Thank you and best of luck!
