Staff members supervise advanced training of candidates with a Ph.D., M.D., D.O., D.V.M. or equivalent degree in specialized areas of research. This program stresses development of research skills, publications and proficiency in grant writing. Positions come with competitive salaries and benefits. Perspective candidates should direct inquiries toward the particular investigator in whose work they are interested.
Combined clinical and research training programs are based in the Henry Ford Health Sciences Center through the Departments of Internal Medicine (Nephrology, Endocrinology) and Surgery. Perspective candidates should direct inquiries toward the particular clinical Department or Division that match their training goals.
Graduate student research projects
Staff members have academic credentials at Wayne State University School of Medicine (in the Departments of Physiology and Pharmacology), and thus can mentor graduate students in their research and dissertation projects. Perspective candidates should direct inquiries toward the particular Departments or the investigator in whose work they are interested. Also, opportunities for doing research projects to fulfill requirements at other Universities can be developed under certain circumstances.
Undergraduate research internships
Some sponsored seasonal research training internships are available to undergraduate students for periods of 3 months to a year. Training is based on experience, and in some cases may be applied as undergraduate credit. Perspective candidates must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program, and should direct inquiries toward the particular investigator in whose work they are interested, generally at least 6 months prior to the available dates.
