Opportunities for Trainees

In May 2021, HSS-CU CAMEO was awarded an NIH funded Training Grant. The goals of the grant are to identify, train, and empower a select group of high potential investigators to utilize the principles of engineering to advance patient care through interdisciplinary research while nurturing them to become successful academic and clinical leaders in the musculoskeletal and orthopaedic sciences.

The program supports: Two pre-doctoral positions for graduate students in the College of Engineering at CU &Two post-doctoral positions at HSS, who are co-mentored by faculty spanning HSS and CU.

For the 2023-24 academic year the program has been awarded two administrative supplements. First is an administrative supplement to Recognize Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship, which supportsfour pre-doctoral trainees from the College of Engineering. The second supplement is aimed at creatinga structured Translational Pain Research Training Program while also supporting anadditional pre-doctoral trainee in the PhD/DVM program from Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine.

The next call for open training opportunities in the post-doctoral training program will be issued in Spring 2024.
