PhD students from Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering graduate programs will be eligible to be nominated for support, along with applicants from the College of Medicine Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) supported, in part, by NIH. The goals of the Lung Imaging Training Program (LITP) are to promote the training of students as well as research collaborations between students and mentors from the aforementioned departments and researchers and clinicians from the Carver College of Medicine.
If you are interested in participating in LIPT through one of the graduate programs listed above, please make sure to indicate your interest in the training program your application.
Post-doctoral fellows affiliated with an LITP mentor can also be nominated for a post-doctoral trainee slot. Post-doctoral trainees will typically have a background in medicine, engineering, or closely related field (e.g., physics, chemistry, physiology, etc.) and can be appointed for one to three years, depending on the project and competition for post-doctoral trainee slots.
One of the post-doctoral trainee slots supported through the proposed training grant will be reserved for an MD fellow trainee, who will devote one or more years of fellowship training to a research project with an LITP mentor. In addition, the Department of Radiology and the Division of Pulmonary Medicine are committed (50/50) to funding one additional post-doctoral trainee slot.
