Postdoctoral, undergraduate, high school and middle school training at the ISR provides the opportunity to enhance research skills in unique trauma and burn research medical disciplines.
The Extremity Trauma and Regenerative Medicine Task Area at the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral positions. Qualified candidates must be highly motivated, independent individuals with a PhD in bioengineering, physiology, cell biology, microbiology, or a related field. Candidates must have exceptional laboratory and written communication skills and the ability to work both independently and cooperatively within a team.
The successful candidate will be joining a research program that focuses on the repair of skin, muscle and bone injuries and infection control to improve extremity trauma outcomes. Emphasis is placed on transitioning products from pre-clinical to clinical testing in a collaborative environment involving researchers and clinicians.
The USAISR is co-located with San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC) in San Antonio, TX, which enables the research organization to have a unique in-depth understanding of combat injuries and civilian trauma and the clinical challenges faced by the physicians and surgeons who treat them. This creates a unique environment for translational research.
Eligible candidates include those with an MD or DO degree, at least 2 years of prior clinical training in surgery, and a medical license from any of the US state medical licensing boards. The position is salaried at $45,000 per year. This fellowship is currently not approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the U.S. Department of Defense Office of Graduate Medical Education. A diploma and a letter of completion are provided to those who successfully complete the program.
To apply, applicants must submit their curriculum vitae, brief description of research interests and career goals, and email contact information for three references to:
