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:

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, 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.
