The Mayo Clinic Otolaryngology Research Fellowship program is available for three or four highly motivated research fellows an academic year.

This is a yearlong position open to applicants who have a bachelor's degree and are either enrolled in, or have completed, medical school within one calendar year of applying to the program. Prior research experience is helpful but not required. The Department of Otolaryngology offers two full-time, paid fellowship positions, including salary and benefits. In 2021, one position will have a primary focus in oropharynx cancer research. The second position is unrestricted. The department can offer up to two additional unrestricted positions for applicants who have independent funding, such as from a home institution or grants.

Applicants are required to have a working knowledge of word processing and basic spreadsheet functions in Excel. Highly competitive applicants will have experience with electronic medical records, data management software such as Excel and RedCap, and may have some experience with basic statistical software such as R, Stata, JMP and SASS.

We have completed our application process for 2021 and are no longer accepting applications. Please check back in the fall of 2021 for information on our next application cycle. This program runs for 12 calendar months, beginning in June.
