Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
The Training in Emerging Multidisciplinary Approaches to Mental Health and Disease Training Program at the University of Chicago is now soliciting applications for a postdoctoral trainee. Appointments can begin as early as July 1, 2014 and will last for one year, with the expectation of a second and final year of support, assuming satisfactory progress. Trainees will be paid at NIH mandated stipend rates. Training is primarily laboratory-based and will be coordinated with your research mentor; trainees will also be expected to participate in training activities that will include a quarterly retreat that features didactic lectures from training faculty and trainees, a journal club, a seminar series, and a grant writing course.

Eligibility criteria:

1. Applicants must be sponsored by a training faculty member. A list can be found on our website. Trainees should contact faculty members working in their area of interest to arrange for them to sponsor an application to the training program.

2. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders).

3. Applicants that have been funded by another NIH training grant as a postdoctoral trainee should seek prior approval before applying.

Applications, (which are submitted by the sponsoring training faculty member) consist of:

1. A brief cover letter in which the mentor states that they will mentor the postdoc trainee and that the postdoc will participate in all training activities. This is not a recommendation letter and may be brief.

2. Completed application (please contact Peggy Collins, pcollins1@uchicago.edu for an application).

3. The applicant?s current CV or NIH-formatted biosketch (Section A not required).

4. The training faculty?s NIH-formatted biosketch (Section A not required) and a current copy of the training faculty?s NIH formatted Other Support.

5. A 300-word abstract describing the proposed project making clear the genetic and psychiatric components of the project.

Underrepresented minorities, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please see our website for additional details.

All materials should be submitted to Peggy Collins, pcollins1@uchicago.edu, preferably as a single PDF
