A gift from The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation established the Eli and Edythe Broad Clinical Research Fellows at USC. We plan to fund up to 3 positions, and successful applicants will receive a $77,000 stipend + $12,000 health insurance for a minimum of 80% effort this year. The fellows must have completed their MD or MD/PhD training, currently be in a good standing in a USC/CHLA residency program or a fellowship program, and hold a license to practice medicine within the United States.

Successful candidates will be notified by April 30, 2023. The fellowship will provide one full-year salary support for clinical residents or fellows engaged in a minimum 80% effort on a research project broadly related to stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. We strongly encourage the development of translational research projects. The research fellowship project will be conducted at the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) or in a collaborative effort with SCRM department faculty. Fellowships will be awarded for one year only. The funding period may commence any time from May 15 to July 1, 2023.
