Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar’s (WCMC-Q) Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals, a programme inspired by the Qatar Vision 2030 for the country to develop a knowledge-based economy, will recommence in January 2014.

The research training programme is a unique opportunity for Qatari college graduates with an interest in biomedical research to gain hands on experience in world-class research laboratories at WCMC-Q.

Although the programme is aimed at recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career as a bench or clinical researcher, applications will be welcomed from nationals with a variety of degrees, for example computer science, business management or communication. 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 WCMC-Q, and is organised in partnership with the Qatar Science Leadership Program at Qatar Foundation.

Applications can be submitted online until 21 October 2013 at WCMC-Q’s website. An information session will be held at WCMC-Q on 30 September 2013.
