The University of North Carolina post doc position




The purpose of UNCH-CH?s T-32 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. 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. 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 1st, 2020.
