Posted by Angela Bowman, on 30 June 2020
Closing Date: 15 March 2021
The Center of Regenerative Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for the Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellows in Regenerative Medicine program. These fellowships honor Rita Levi-Montalcini, whose Nobel-winning discovery of Nerve Growth Factor was among the first regenerative biology research to be conducted at WUSTL.
The Center of Regenerative Medicine (CRM) seeks individuals of outstanding talent with a doctoral degree to provide them with the opportunity to pursue research within a CRM lab. As Rita Levi-Montalcini was herself an international scholar working at WUSTL, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply. Additional information about the Center of Regenerative Medicine can be found at: https://regenerativemedicine.wustl.edu/. Full program details can be found at: https://regenerativemedicine.wustl.edu/about/rlm_fellowship/rlm_programdetails/. We anticipate awarding one fellowship in 2020.
RLM Fellowships are intended for exceptional scientists of great promise who have recently been awarded, or who are about to be awarded, the doctoral degree. Fellows are required to work in the lab of a CRM faculty member on a project that directly focuses on regenerative medicine. Current employees, fellows, and students of Washington University in St. Louis are not eligible. Applicants currently on H-1B visas are not eligible.
