Postdoctoral Fellows Program
One of the goals of the Burke Medical Research Institute is to train the next generation of scientists. The Institute provides a unique and beautiful setting for postdocs interested in undertaking cutting edge scientific research. Postdoctoral training opportunities are posted under the careers tab at the top of the page.

Graduate Education
All faculty members have appointments at Weill Cornell Medical College and therefore are eligible to host graduate students from WCMC departments of Neuroscience and Developmental Biology. If you are interested in graduate studies at Burke, please apply to Weill Cornell Medical College at http://weill.cornell.edu/gradschool/.

Undergraduate Summer Student Research Program
The Burke Medical Research Institute offers a summer undergraduate research program for rising sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degrees and a career in biomedical research.  Students will work with faculty engaged in research related to repair of the nervous system.  The Burke Rehabilitation Center is one of the few rehabilitation facilities with dedicated programs in basic research (understanding how the normal brain functions and how it goes awry in disease), translational research (understanding how to move basic research to the human bedside), and clinical research (testing of new therapies in humans).  Accepted students are placed in a laboratory with research programs that overlap their expressed area of interest.  At the completion of the program, students will present the results of their research at a poster session attended by the entire Burke community.

For additional information, please see our program overview and application materials.
