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:

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.

The Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Program at UT Southwestern

This fellowship is available to candidates who have completed residency training in dermatology in the United States or Canada. Applications for the 2018-2019 UT Southwestern Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Program will be accepted through June 2018.

The Department of Dermatology at UT Southwestern was approved to sponsor a Fellowship in Pediatric Dermatology in September 2016. The goal of this program is to train exceptional clinicians committed to the care of pediatric patients (and their families) affected by dermatologic disease, while training general dermatologists and/or pediatricians to extend care to the same population and advance the subspecialty as a whole.

Our location in a region with the fourth highest birth rate in the United States ensures a steady stream of patients from the neonatal period through young adulthood, with a variety of congenital and acquired common and rare conditions constituting the foundation for a rich clinical experience. The fellow will practice in an ambulatory clinic affiliated with a 600+ bed Children’s Hospital that is nationally recognized in at least 10 specialties. The fellow will have access to an outpatient operating facility for procedures in children.

Applicants to the UT Southwestern Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Program should submit a personal statement outlining the candidate’s commitment to pediatric dermatology, a recent photograph, a letter of recommendation, and a current curriculum vitae.
