Mentoring Researchers for the Future
The Department of Emergency Medicine Postdoctoral Program offers unique research opportunities to highly talented individuals to engage in ongoing emergency medicine research programs at the University of Pittsburgh. These one- to three-year appointments are competitive and are designed to advance the Department of Emergency Medicine research missions in resuscitation, prehospital care, and first responder health and safety. Highly qualified candidates interested in clinical research may apply to the K12 scholar program.
Opportunities are available to acquire skills in small and large animal models, human physiology, and emergency medicine/emergency medical services research. Postdoctoral associates must select a primary mentor and a mentoring team during their postdoctoral experience. Faculty currently available to mentor postdoctoral associates includes Don Yealy, MD, Clif Callaway, MD, PhD, Jim Menegazzi, PhD, and Dave Hostler, PhD.
