Job Description

The North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine seeks prospective students interested in veterinary and biomedical research. We offer two programs that may be of interest to you, and have travel scholarships available to visit the campus to learn more about the programs.

(1) The Comparative Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program offers Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. This program is particularly structured for veterinarians considering an academic career and is ideal for veterinary specialists who are looking for an opportunity to obtain advanced research training. We know that you have already had a significant amount of course work at this stage of your career, so the program is designed to minimize course work and maximize your research opportunities. We offer concentration areas in Physiology, Immunology, Pharmacology, Population Health, Neurosciences, Pathology and Cell Biology as well as additional educational opportunities including industry out-rotations, grant writing mentorship and a teaching certificate program. Many of our post-residency trainees complete the program in 3-4 years.

(2) The Comparative Medicine and Transnational Research Training Program offers fellowships to provide post-graduate (DVM) research opportunities for veterinary specialists in well-funded laboratories that will lead to a doctoral degree (PhD).

Applications for Fall 2020 for trainees wishing to be considered for a stipend are due December 1, 2019. We are offering a limited number of travel scholarships to help with the cost of your visit. Please email [javascript protected email address] by November 11, 2019 if you would like to come for a visit and would like to be considered for a travel scholarship.

If you are interested in the program or wish to learn more information, please reach out to Dr. Kate Meurs, the Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies. Also, Dr. Meurs plans on attending the ACVR annual meeting in Baltimore, from October 30-November 2. If you would like to touch base during the meeting, please reach out to her at [javascript protected email address].

If you are considering a career in veterinary academics or industry and would like to pursue a PhD after your residency, we welcome you to come visit NC State University to learn more about the program. Thank you!
