2022 CIHMID T32 Postdoctoral Fellow Application

The Cornell Institute of Host-Microbe Interactions and Disease (CIHMID; http://cihmid.cornell.edu) offers financial support and professional development opportunities for postdoctoral scholars to study host-microbe interactions. CIHMID postdocs are supported for up to three years to develop research programs in collaboration with two or more labs at Cornell, and will be provided with professional development opportunities during the academic year and summer. Candidates who will have been at Cornell for more than one year at the time of their appointment to the program will be eligible for up to two years of support. CIHMID postdocs are expected to have intellectual ownership of their projects and may use their support to build bridges across different disciplines of study. Studied host-microbe interactions may be pathogenic or beneficial; microbial partners may be bacterial, viral or fungal; eukaryotic hosts may be animal or plant. Supporting a diverse portfolio of research systems and questions is an explicit goal of the training program.

The program is supported by a training grant from the US National Institutes of Health (T32 AI145821) and appointments are made through competitive application. Questions about the program may be directed to bplazzaro@cornell.edu.

**Applicants are required to confer with prospective host labs prior to application.**
