The Johns Hopkins University Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology is pleased to offer two Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Scholars Program fellowships for veterinary students. This is a paid summer research fellowship for veterinary students who have completed their first or second year of veterinary school. Boehringer Ingelheim Scholars will spend 12 weeks doing cutting edge translational research at our world renowned biomedical research university. At the end of their experience, the Boehringer Ingelheim Scholars will present their research at the National Veterinary Scholars Symposium at Tufts University and MIT in Massachusetts.
Eligible host labs are led by proven mentors, and detailed information on research directions can be found on our webpage (http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/mcp/faculty). You will be asked to rank 3 research concentrations that interest you from the list below, and you will be matched with a mentor.
The program starts on Monday, May 20th, 2019 and continues for 12 weeks. The program includes multiple organized professional development activities, so Fellows are encouraged to take vacation before or after the fellowship dates, however there will be flexibility in the start date for students whose academic year ends later than May 20th. This program provides a weekly stipend of approximately $500.
To be eligible, a student must have completed 1 year of their veterinary curriculum and have an interest in exploring research as a career. The student need not have previously participated in research activities.
To apply for the program, please send 1) an essay outlining your career goals and how this program will help you to better define or achieve your goals (maximum 1 page), including a short paragraph summarizing any previous research projects (if applicable), 2) a list of three research concentrations that interest you (choose from: infectious disease, immunology, cancer biology, genetics, neurology), 3) a resumé, 4) a copy of your transcript (unofficial okay), 5) recommendation letters from two references, and 6) your GPA & Class Rank. Please mail application to Emma Ey, Academic Program Coordinator, Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology, Johns Hopkins University, 733 N. Broadway, Suite 811, Baltimore, MD 21205-2196, or e-mail to email@example.com no later than February 1st, 2018.

About Johns Hopkins University
The Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine carries out the three-fold mission of research, teaching, and service through its expertise in veterinary medicine, pathology, and animal models of disease. Training of veterinary scientists in comparative medicine and comparative pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine began in the 1960s and continues today.
Current faculty research areas include animal models of HIV/AIDS, cancer, degenerative CNS diseases, cardiovascular disease, developmental biology, hematology/immunology, and rickettsial, parasitic, and infectious diseases. Faculty, residents, and post-doctoral fellows share their expertise in veterinary pathology and animal models with other investigators in other departments and work to insure the health and welfare of laboratory animals at Johns Hopkins.
