Marshfield Clinic Research Institute is once again offering a postdoctoral fellowship to an early career scientist aspiring to begin their medical research portfolio with the Research Institute.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program was established to provide a launching pad for early career scientists that included mentorship from a researcher. This includes attracting high quality postdoctoral fellows to the Research Institute and identifying prospective candidates for career advancement from within the Research Institute. 

“Having a robust postdoctoral fellowship program advances the overall quality of research at Marshfield Clinic Research Institute," said Scott Hebbring, Ph.D., a research scientist with the Center for Precision Medicine Research leading the program. “These early career scientists are the future of medical research."

The postdoctoral fellows will be paired with a research scientist at the Research Institute for the entire two-year term. The fellowship supports the fellow's salary and there are assigned funds for professional development.

These funds are made possible by donor support through Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation. 

“When scientists are getting started, it can be hard to get funding from large organizations like the CDC or FDA. It is valuable to have donor funds to support these new scientists," said Karen Piel, planned giving officer for Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation. “It's exciting because this is ultimately where new research is born."
