Surgical Neuroanatomy Lab Research Fellowships

Research fellowship positions are offered in the Surgical Neuroantamony Lab (SNL) throughout the year. Minimum length of the fellowship program is 12 months; shorter periods of time might be considered under special circumstances.

Funding for personal expenses is not available, but the SNL will provide the anatomical and technical material needed to complete your training and research projects. Fellows will focus on areas of their interest under the guidance of the SNL faculty.

Those interested in applying for the research fellowship position should please contact Paul Gardner, MD, at gardpa@upmc.edu and send an updated curriculum vitae and at least one letter of recommendation.
