The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University Department of Biomedical Engineering, Columbia University Department of Biomedical Engineering, Columbia Engineering, and Columbia University Irving Medical Center, will host a two-day intensive training workshop for the 20 Rising Stars in Ithaca this September. All program applicants are invited to attend select portions of the workshop remotely.

About the Rising Stars in Engineering in Health Program

Now in its fourth year, the Rising Stars in Engineering in Health Workshop aims to educate, train and empower the next generation of leaders in academia at the intersection of engineering and the biomedical sciences. The two-day, in-person, interactive workshop will take place September 22-23, 2023 on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY and will feature rapid-fire research talks, educational presentations, intensive workshops, mock interviews, and panel discussions with faculty from Cornell University, Johns Hopkins and Columbia University.

The annual program, co-hosted by the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering, Columbia Biomedical Engineering, Columbia Engineering, and Columbia Medicine, welcomes applicants from across the United States and Canada, including postdoctoral fellows, research scientists and graduate students, who are 1-2 years away from applying for a faculty position. Because these University hosts prioritize fostering an environment that embraces diversity, equity and inclusion, applicants from groups historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines are especially encouraged to apply.
