Undergraduate: Every year, Dr. Xu’s lab hosts up to two undergraduate students in STEM related fields to participate in summer research projects. Currently, there are no such opening available for the summer 2019. Promising mentees are encouraged and will be mentored to apply for the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) or the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) at Mount Sinai.

Predoctoral: Dr. Xu participates as training faculty in the Neuroscience (NEU) and Biophysics and Systems Pharmacology (BSP) multidisciplinary training area (MTA) of the PhD program at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Prospective graduate students should apply through the PhD or MD/PhD programs of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Mount Sinai, and indicate  NEU or BSP as their primary training area. Every year, there is one opening of laboratory rotation for first year graduate students.

Postdoctoral: Currently there are no positions for postdoctoral fellows in Dr. Xu’s lab. However, prospective postdoctoral fellow candidates interested in joining Dr. Xu’s lab are encouraged to email Dr. Xu about their research ideas. To maximize the postdoctoral training value, doctoral students close to the end of their dissertation defense are highly encouraged to contact Dr. Xu at least 3-6 months before the deadline of postdoctoral fellowship opportunities to allow sufficient time to develop postdoctoral fellowship proposals together.

Medical: Clinical fellows, residents, or medical students at Mount Sinai interested in gaining research experience in neuroimaging are encouraged to contact Dr. Xu for suitable research projects. Promising mantees are encouraged and will be mentored to apply for the RSNA Research Resident/Fellow Grant, the RSNA Research Medical Student Grant, or the Alpha Omega Alpha Student Research Fellowship.
