Qataris with an interest in science and research are invited to apply for an internship on a world-class research program. Applications have now opened for Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar’s (WCMC-Q) Biomedical Research Training Program for Nationals, which will restart in January 2016. The initiative is a unique opportunity for Qatari college graduates with an interest in biomedical research to gain hands on experience in world-class laboratories at WCMC-Q and in the different administrative and managerial responsibilities related to biomedical research.

Although the program is aimed at recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career as a bench or clinical researcher, or a research administrator, applications from nationals are welcomed irrespective of their discipline. 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 22. Interested applicants can contact the research training team at Applicants can also visit the training program page at
