Advancing research and scientific discovery is a core mission of the University of Rochester School of Nursing.

The fellow will begin to teach and mentor students as well as begin to provide academic, community and professional service.


Candidates must hold an undergraduate or graduate degree in nursing and an eared research doctorate (within the past 5 years) in nursing or a related field.

A successful candidate will have an emerging record of first-authored data-based publications and grant proposal submissions for funding. They will focus on a topic of high significance and strong funding potential.
