Positions Open for Summer 2017
The goals of the Health Disparities Research Scholars (HDRS) program are to foster training opportunities for the next generation of investigators within health disparities research. The fellowship program has been supported since 2005 by an institutional training grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD). The Health Disparities Research Scholars (HDRS) program provides training at the postdoctoral level in interdisciplinary research that addresses disparities in health status and health outcomes among minority populations with an emphasis on maternal/child, adolescent and family health. To enable fellows to become proficient, independent investigators, interdisciplinary training includes didactic, small group interaction, and experiential learning activities. Candidates from disciplines across the social, behavioral, biological, and health sciences are encouraged to apply.UW-Madison provides an extraordinary environment for training in health disparities research. Expertise can be found at the School of Medicine and Public Health and across campus, and participating HDRS program faculty come from a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, public health, economics, psychology, epidemiology, sociology, social work, human ecology, and biosciences. These faculty are involved with nationally known centers and institutes including the Institute for Research on Poverty, Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, the Center for Demography and Ecology, and the Population Health Institute.
Completed applications must be received by Friday, February 3, 2017.
Note: The appointment start date for this RFA is contingent upon the successful competitive renewal of the T32 training grant funded by the NICHD.
