T32 Postdoctoral Trainee

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The purpose of UNCH-CH’s T32 Post-Doctoral Research Training Program is to develop researchers with expertise in both the biological basis and clinical manifestations of neurodevelopmental disorders. This broad-based and integrated perspective enables researchers to better relate across disciplines and maximizes the potential for major research advances in understanding the pathogenesis and treatment of these disorders.

Over a two-year period, fellows will participate in integrated training in biological and behavioral research in neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., autism, fragile X syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Turner syndrome, VeloCardioFacial Syndrome, and Neurofibromatosis) while studying clinical and basic science areas (e.g., genetics, cell biology and physiology, pharmacology, allied health sciences, neurology, biochemistry, psychology, and psychiatry). The stipend for the training grant positions follows NIH guidelines depending on experience. This program is funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2021.

This program provides a variety of opportunities including:

  1. mentored research training in specific methods, disorders, and underlying pathogenetic mechanisms;
  2. courses, seminars, and lectures that integrate the study of clinical disorders, normal developmental processes, mechanisms of disease, and research methods; and
  3. clinical experiences to complement previous levels of clinical knowledge and skills.

Educational Requirements
Postdoctoral trainees must have received, as of the beginning date of the NRSA appointment, a Ph.D., M.D. or comparable doctoral degree from an accredited domestic or foreign institution. Eligible doctoral degrees include, but are not limited to, the following: D.D.S., D.M.D., D.O., D.V.M., O.D., D.P.M., Sc.D., Eng.D., Dr. P.H., D.N.Sc., D. Pharm., D.S.W., and Psy.D. Documentation by an authorized official of the degree-granting institution certifying all degree requirements have been met prior to the beginning date of training is acceptable.

Qualifications and Experience

Ph.D. (from either basic science or clinical research programs) and M.D. (e.g., physicians in residency training) level trainees are encouraged to apply.
