We are soliciting applications for a new Bio-Social Training Program that aims to promote and support interdisciplinary training of Post-doctoral scholars from both the social sciences and biological/health sciences. The goal of this new and innovative training program is to produce scientists who will conduct truly integrative work that will address some of the most pressing health problems. Trainees will have the opportunity to receive interdisciplinary mentorship and training in a wide array of content areas, ranging from social inequalities to biological processes. Trainees will enter from their respective disciplines and will identify a co-preceptor team comprised of a mentor from their home discipline and another representing their new interdisciplinary interest area.

Requirements:  Postdoctoral trainees must have received their PhD degree before the start date of the traineeship. Graduates from any academic program are eligible to apply.

The program will start May, 2018.  Applications will be accepted until January 1.  More information and our application can be accessed from the following website:

Lead PIs: Drs. Allison Aiello (Epidemiology) and Robert Hummer (Sociology)
