Duke Post-Doctoral Training in Genomic Medicine

The Duke Center for Precision Medicine offers a two-year post-doctoral training program in genomic medicine. This unique program provides training in a fast-growing field marked by the advent of new technologies, increased use of clinical genomic medicine, and large-scale federally- and privately-funded research efforts. The Post-Doctoral Training Program in Genomic Medicine is supported by a Ruth L. Kirschstein Institutional National Research Service Award (T32). The program is open to U.S. citizens only.

The objectives of this training program are to provide post-doctoral trainees with:

  • Didactic training in the methods of clinical research and knowledge relevant to genomic medicine research,
  • A co-mentored research experience emphasizing interdisciplinary research, and
  • Training and experience to provide the necessary skills to enable the trainee to transition to an independent research program.
