A collaborative event

This virtual event is a collaboration with the Pelotonia Fellowship Program and the Research Institute Training Office at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The event will provide an excellent opportunity for outstanding PhD students from leading graduate programs to meet our research faculty, interview for open postdoctoral positions, and discover the exciting and innovative research taking place at The Ohio State University and the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Selected candidates will be invited to a virtual event with Ohio State on October 25, 2021. Interviews will occur October 26-29. There might be opportunities for individuals residing in the United States to interview in-person, depending on the Covid-19 status in October. All candidates will have the opportunity to virtually network with current OSU and NCH postdocs, present their research to faculty in a podium presentation, interview with prospective mentors, and learn more about postdoctoral opportunities at Ohio State and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

  • Virtual opportunities to learn about the Ohio State University Campus and learn about the city of Columbus
  • Network with current postdocs from Ohio State and Nationwide Children’s Hospital
  • Present your research to faculty
  • Interview with prospective mentors to discuss postdoc research opportunities at OSU and NCH

Any candidate (visa status does not matter) can apply. We are especially interested in reviewing applications from US Citizens and permanent residents, particularly those who are training grant eligible. Individuals from groups underrepresented in the biomedical workforce are strongly encouraged to apply, including students from racial and ethnic groups shown to be underrepresented nationally and individuals with disabilities.
