Rhinology One year Research Fellowship

The Rhinology Division of the University of Florida Department of Otolaryngology has established a one-year Rhinology Research Fellowship for students interested in Rhinology and pursuing residency training in Otolaryngology.  This one-year program allows the research fellow the opportunity to perform high quality clinical and translational research with Dr. Jeb M. Justice and Dr. Brian C. Lobo in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Jennifer Mulligan investigating the immunopathology of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).

The ideal candidates would be a medical student between 3rd & 4th year of medical school who are interested in pursuing Otolaryngology as a career, as well as recent medical school graduates seeking to improve their research experience while preparing to apply to an Otolaryngology residency program. 

The goal of the fellowship is to provide meaningful translational research training for fellows/students and for them to gain skills that they can use to further the fields of Rhinology and Otolaryngology.  Fellows will participate in clinical, translational, and basic science projects with the expectation of transforming their projects into manuscripts fit for submission to peer-reviewed journals and presentations at national and international scientific meetings.

Candidates must come from U.S. accredited allopathic and osteopathic medical schools and have valid work authorization.

Candidates will receive a $25,000 salary as well as health benefits.

Fellows will work directly with Drs. Mulligan, Justice, and Lobo, as well as have exposure to University of Florida Otolaryngology residents. This position will also include ample shadowing opportunities in Drs. Justice and Lobo’s operating rooms which include functional endoscopic sinus surgery as well as endoscopic skull base and orbital surgery.  Skills and tasks will include study design, IRB submissions, data collection, biostatistics, manuscripts writing, and oral presentations.  Clinical topics include the etiology of CRS, potential treatments of CRS, endoscopic skull base surgery, orbital surgery, and the unified airway.
