Research Fellowship in Clinical Investigation

Dermatology Alpert Medical School Dr. Abrar A. Qureshi jane_white@brown.edu 6/12/18

The Clinical and Translational Research Program in the Department of Dermatology at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University has a full-time Research Fellowship in Clinical Investigation open. A research fellowship is a directed, highly individualized, postgraduate training program designed to prepare the participant to function as an independent investigator. The purpose of the fellowship is to develop competency and expertise in the scientific research process, including hypothesis generation and development, study design, protocol development, grantsmanship, study coordination, data collection, analysis and interpretation, and technical skills development.

Brown Dermatology has a strong track record in epidemiology, health services research, investigator initiated observational/interventional trials, genetics and clinical trials. We have a dedicated clinical trial unit with 2 exam rooms, management space, a lab to process blood and other biological specimens staffed by a Clinical Research Coordinator and Clinical Research Assistants. In addition, we are also a site for pediatric clinical studies. We have tremendous support for preparing and submitting regulatory documents including IRB applications with strong collaborations between Dermatology, Rheumatology and Cutaneous Oncology. We offer interested candidates a myriad of support in clinical investigation with highly experienced and committed faculty.

Fellows must meet the following criteria for consideration of the position:

  • Completion of an advanced degree such as MD or MD/PhD in epidemiology, dermatology or other related areas
  • U.S Citizen or Foreign national with permanent U.S residence
  • Completion of at least 1 year of post-graduate training prior to start of fellowship or those who have completed a Dermatology residency
  • Eligible for licensure to practice medicine in Rhode Island

The anticipated start date for this position is flexible. Interested candidates should contact Dr. Abrar A. Qureshi, MD, MPH via email with a brief cover letter indicating their research interests and career goals, CV, and contact information for three references to the attention of Jane White: jane_white@brown.edu.

 
POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOENGINEERING, BIOCHEMISTRY, MATERIAL SCIENCE, BIOMECHANICS, AND IMPLANT DESIGN Orthopedics Alpert Medical School Valentin Antoci Jr. MD PhD valentin_antoci@brown.edu 3/1/18

Orthopedic arthroplasty implant design and biomaterial modification is expected to surpass 30 billion dollars by 2022. As such, our laboratory is focused on innovation in joint replacement biomaterials by trying to directly address clinical questions through basic science research. Our expertise expands across the field of orthopedic design, revision surgery, biomaterial modification, smart materials, periprosthetic infection, biofilms, ingrowth and ongrowth surfaces, and osteoblast/chondrocyte interaction with material surfaces. Our previous work has led to smart nanosurface modification to titanium surfaces that renders them antibacterial while not inhibiting biocompatibility. We now expand on the concept to include all phases of implant survival including osteo-integration, infection prevention, periprosthetic infection treatment, osteolysis, and other processes. We would like to expand into 3D micro-spatial design and printing with the goal of future total joint scaffolding rather than metallic replacement.  


As such, we seek a well trained, skilled, and flexible post-doctoral candidate who is capable of a translational approach to basic science research, while integrating knowledge and background from multiple fields, including biochemistry, material science and biomaterials, microbiology, and animal work. The candidate would be comfortable working independently while cooperating with multiple teams to combine expertise and techniques. A degree of clinical integration will be expected, while working with animal experiments but also human tissue and explanted biomaterials. The individual selected will be working directly, and in cooperation with an orthopedic surgeon, thus affording the translational nature of the projects. Combining clinical expertise with biomaterial and bioengineering approaches, we try to materialize products that are ultimately targeted for the operating room and the patient.


The opportunity is immense as it allows extended independence, flexible thinking, and opportunities for leadership and professional advancement. The job allows for growth and integration within one of the top ivy league schools in the country and also the top cartilage and biomaterial departments in orthopedic surgery. Ultimately, this is an opportunity for a life long academic career and a future faculty position at Brown University.
