The deadline for application to the Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals, an initiative of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q), has been extended from 5 November until 26 November 2017.
The initiative is a unique opportunity for Qatari college graduates with an interest in biomedical research to gain hands-on experience in world-class laboratories at WCM-Q and in the different administrative and managerial responsibilities related to biomedical research. The programme was launched in 2011 and so far has helped 33 graduates take the first step on the path to a successful career in research. The programme will restart in January 2018.
Although the programme is aimed at recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career as a bench or clinical researcher and/or research administrator, applications from nationals are welcomed irrespective of their discipline. The training programme is a full-time, six-month employment commitment with trainees receiving a graduation certificate upon completion.
The trainees are paid a stipend as part of a comprehensive compensation package. The programme is fully funded by WCM-Q and is organised in partnership with the Qatar Research Leadership Program at Qatar Foundation.
