- Postdoctoral Training in NIH Intramural Research Program
The Health Disparities Unit (HDU) in the Social and Behavioral Research Branch (SBRB) is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow interested in the study of 1) the intersection of genomics, social determinants of health, and health inequities specifically related to the integration of precision medicine and/or curative genetic therapies into health care; or 2) societal issues of genomics, race and human genetic variation; or 3) clinical, genomic and psychosocial factors in sickle cell disease. The Unit studies sickle cell disease as a case study of a genetic condition with a history of inequities in research and clinical care. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to develop their own initiatives within the scope of ongoing research in the Unit and participate in the training and mentoring of postbaccalaureate fellows.
SBRB is research program within the Division of Intramural Research at National Human Genome Research Institute. Our research focuses on a spectrum of disorders, from those that have a major public health impact, to rare genetic conditions with significant impact on affected families. Further information about the Social and Behavioral Research Branch and Division of Intramural Research may be found at: https://www.genome.gov/about-nhgri/Division-of-Intramural-Research/Social-Behavioral-Research- Branch.
Qualifications: Candidates legally approved work in the USA with an earned doctoral degree in the social and behavioral sciences, social genomics or closely related field are invited to apply. Preference will be given to candidates with established superior analytic research skills, expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods, strong written and oral communication skills, and with demonstrated research interests in areas currently under investigation in the Unit. Applicants must have completed their doctoral training prior to the start of the fellowship and have no more than 5 years of relevant research experience since receipt of their most recent doctoral.
To apply: applicants should provide-
1. A curriculum vitae
2. A statement of research interests to be pursued during training
3. Two writing samples
4. Official transcripts for undergraduate and graduate coursework
