Prospective Trainees

New James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute

Discovery PREP is designed to support recent college graduates who have not had the advantages or opportunities to gain the research experience and skills required to initiate a career in biomedical research or who want to gain additional research experience in their current field or in a different field.

Applicants must be a recent baccalaureate graduate (within the last three years) and have majored in a subject related to biomedical science (i.e. biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, microbiology, molecular biology).  Applicants must also be a U.S citizen or permanent resident.

Applications from groups underrepresented in biomedical research are strongly encouraged to apply. These include individuals from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, or individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. For more information on the NIH’s definition of underrepresented groups, please visit 

https://www.nigms.nih.gov/Training/Diversity/Pages/Approaches.aspx . 

Trainees commit to our Program for one year and are paid a monthly stipend with health and retirement benefits available during their 12 month term. It is expected that 2018-2019 participants will apply for admission into a PhD graduate program for entry in the Fall of 2019. Successful applicants typically have a GPA greater than 3.0, demonstrated passion for research, and a strong desire to attain a PhD in Biomedical Sciences. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and although most trainees will start at Orientation during the last week of June, start dates can be customized to the needs of the trainee. Please feel free to contact our office with further questions.
