Pfingst Laboratory Training Opportunities

Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Training

A limited number of predoctoral or postdoctoral training positions are available in the animal and human laboratories.  Please contact Dr. Pfingst to determine availability of slots and compatibility with your research training and interests.  Predoctoral trainees must be accepted into a degree-granting program at the University of Michigan; e.g. the Department of Psychology, the Neuroscience Program or some other doctoral program. 

For funding, postdoctoral or predoctoral applicants, if appropriate, will be invited to apply for one of a limited number of training slots in the Hearing, Balance and Chemical Senses (HBCS) Program.  Note that this program can only fund individuals who are U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents who have a green card. 

Research Training for Undergraduates

Undergraduates interested in research training should contact Dr. Pfingst to determine availability of slots and compatibility with their interests and goals.  Limited funding is available through the U-M Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) or the work-study program.

Medical Student and Resident Research Training

Medical Students interested in summer or year long research training, or residents interested in 6 month or 2-year research rotations, please contact Dr. Pfingst to assess availability of slots and compatibility with your goals and research interests.  Limited funding is available for first-year medical students through the Student Biomedical Research Program (SBRP).  Limited funding for residents and year-long research rotations for medical students is available through the Advanced Training in Otolaryngology Program (ARTOP) training grant.
