The Bioengineering Cardiovascular Training Program is soliciting applications for 2 training program positions
April 11, 2011 | UW Bioengineering
The UW Bioengineering Cardiovascular Training Grant (BCTG) program gives students interested in cardiovascular science and engineering an opportunity to train under outstanding mentors in an interdisciplinary environment and provides access to multiple state of the art research core facilities and instruments.
The Bioengineering Cardiovascular Training Program is now soliciting applications for 2 training program positions, with appointments beginning Summer quarter 2011. The application deadline is Wednesday, June 1 at 5PM.
Applications are accepted each year. Check the BCTG website for announcements, eligibility, instructions, and details about the program, http://www.bioeng.washington.edu/regnier/training/index.html. All applications and questions should be directed to the BCTG coordinator, Linda Robbins (email@example.com). Evaluation of applications will include interviews by the program's steering committee.
Positions in the BCTG program typically last 2 years and participants work in the laboratory of a BCTG faculty mentor. In addition to research training students participate in a didactic component with a specialized course, an imaging preceptorship, simulation training in medical procedures, and a seminar series in cardiovascular science. Participants are also trained in communication and professional skills in areas such as manuscript and grant writing, public speaking, and teaching. The program is aimed at helping trainees begin the path to an independent research career. Dr. Mike Regnier, Professor and Vice-Chair of Bioengineering, is the principal investigator of the BCTG, funded through the NIH's National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB).
