Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar’s (WCMC-Q) Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals, a program inspired by the Qatar Vision 2030 for the country to develop a knowledge-based economy, will recommence in January 2015. The research training program is a unique opportunity for Qatari college graduates with an interest in biomedical research to gain hands on experience in world-class research laboratories at WCMC-Q.

Although the program is aimed at recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career as a bench or clinical researcher, or research administrator, applications will be welcomed from nationals with a variety of degrees, for example computer science, business management or communication. The training program is a full-time, six-month employment commitment with trainees receiving a graduation certificate upon completion.

The trainees are paid a stipend as part of a comprehensive compensation package. The program is fully funded by WCMC-Q, and is organized in partnership with the Qatar Science Leadership Program at Qatar Foundation. Applications can be submitted online until October 28.
