USC’s department of Craniofacial Molecular Biology is seeking promising MS and PhD students as well as postdoctoral investigators to participate in our program as well as our NIH training grant. Fellows will thrive in an integrated curriculum that includes mentoring, scientific advancement, academic career development, publication and grantsmanship. Students have the opportunity to work with one or more of 40 USC faculty mentors from USC’s Ostrow School of Dentistry, Keck School of Medicine of USC, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Coursework is taught through symposiums, seminars, clinical research centers and collaborative research. Most doctoral fellows can look forward to their first faculty appointment or position during or soon after completing their degree. Mentors are committed to helping students attain the skills necessary to successfully transition from scholar to independent investigator working in an academic or corporate environment.
