Department of Pediatrics, has openings for post-doctoral fellows in the

The objective of PC-PReP is to provide advanced training for the highest
caliber post-doctoral fellows who will become leaders in community-engaged
research with children at high risk for health disparities and poor
outcomes. Emphasis is placed on research that includes children with
medical complexities and from socially and economically disadvantaged
groups.


Current areas of faculty research include, but are not limited to:

·       Neuroimaging and neuropsychology of brain and behavioral
development in healthy and pediatric populations

·       Psychosocial outcomes related to pediatric illness (cancer, IBD,
congenital heart disease, craniofacial conditions)

·       Child and adolescent depression and suicide

·       Behavioral economics applied to health outcomes

·       Biological mechanisms of stress and psychopathology

·       Health literacy and self-management in chronic illness

·       Health disparities and equity

·       Fertility and reproductive health in at-risk pediatric populations

·       Pediatric trauma outcomes and injury prevention

·       Innovative interventions to promote resilience in chronic illness

·       Nutrition, physical activity, and other health behaviors and
developmental and behavioral outcomes

·       Palliative care and bereavement


Fellows will receive training in research methods, grant writing, and
academic career development. They will also develop and conduct at least
one research project with a faculty mentor leading to publications,
national presentations, and an external funding proposal. We are seeking
doctoral level candidates (e.g., PhD, MD) with pediatric research interests
