Dermatology Fellowships

Basic Science Research Fellow Opportunity

The Basic Science Research Fellowship is for highly motivated individuals interested in Cancer Biology and Stem Cell Biology to investigate early, initiating genetic and microenvironmental events that regulate tumorigenesis. Our research focuses on the identification of the cell origin and on elucidating the roles of microenvironment in tumor development.

We dissect the cellular and molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis from a developmental perspective using Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1), a common tumor predisposition human genetic disorder, as a model. The laboratory is a collaborative effort between the Department of Dermatology and the Department of Developmental Biology, offering an extraordinarily rich environment that encompasses both basic and translational research for individuals pursuing a career in academia. Candidates should hold a Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., or M.D. degree and should possess good communication skills. Interested candidates should send an updated CV, with names and contact information for three professional references to:

Since 1997, the Department of Dermatology has sponsored a fellowship in Mohs Surgery and Procedural Dermatology, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are proud of the rigorous program we have developed that provides trainees a rich clinical experience as they prepare for careers as surgical dermatologists. The main focus of the trainees' educational experience is a busy Mohs unit that consolidates the delivery of care on the main campus for private referrals and patients referred from our institutional partners. Instruction in and experience with cosmetic and laser procedures occurs in the department's Cosmetic Clinic, which is adjacent to the Mohs unit.
