NIH-Funded Research Postdoctoral Position Available, Summer 2013

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience at The University of Chicago, University of Minnesota Medical School, and the Neuropsychiatric Research Institute in Fargo, North Dakota, is seeking qualified candidates for a NIMH T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship position starting Summer/Fall 2013. This T32 Research Fellowship is open to PhD or MD candidates who are United States citizens or Permanent Residents of the US and is part of a 3-site Fellowship (Dr. Scott Crow, P.I. at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Daniel Le Grange, Site Director at The University of Chicago, and Dr. Stephen Wonderlich, Site Director at the Neuropsychiatric Research Institute in Fargo, ND). The successful candidate will join one other Fellow at The University of Chicago, 2 Fellows at Minnesota, and 2 Fellows at NRI. The Postdoctoral Fellow will participate in her/his own research with a primary mentor at The University of Chicago as well as secondary mentor(s) at either NRI or Minnesota. Multiple data sets across the three sites are available for collaborative research, while all Fellows from all three sites participate in weekly videoconference didactics, research presentations, and journal club.

Candidates must have a PhD and/or MD in a relevant field (i.e., clinical or health psychology, psychiatry, nutrition, social work, epidemiology) and a specific interest in establishing themselves as researchers in eating disorders. The position is supported by a NIMH T32 Training Grant and follows appropriate NIH stipend levels for 1-5 years. The position is tailor-made for competitive applications for the NIH Loan Repayment Program, and is ideal for persons pursuing clinical-research or basic science careers. Extensive mentoring opportunities for publication and grant-writing exist with faculty across the three sites.
