University of Wisconsin-Madison: Postdoctoral Trainee in Health Disparities Research

The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology in the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting postdoctoral trainees for its NICHD-funded Postdoctoral Training Program in Health Disparities Research. Appointments will be for 2-3 years beginning in the summer or fall of 2019. This program supports the training of scholars from diverse fields to become interdisciplinary researchers with a focus on health among minority populations, particularly maternal/child, adolescent, and family health. We are seeking candidates who are committed to a research career.

Postdoctoral stipends are determined by NIH, based on years of relevant experience beyond the doctoral degree: grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-175.html

NIH also provides funds for tuition, travel, and research supplies. In addition to the NIH stipend, trainees are eligible for excellent health insurance coverage.

Eligibility requirement: NIH requires that trainees in this program be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the United States. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible. Trainees or scholars in these programs who are permanent residents of the U.S. must submit a notary's signed statement with the appointment form certifying that they have (1) a permanent resident card (USCIS Form I-551) or (2) other legal verification of such status.

Application procedures and program information: www.obgyn.wisc.edu/CWHDR/HDRS/apply.aspx. To ensure consideration, apply by February 1, 2019.
