Postdoctoral Fellow Openings

The Social and Behavioral Research Branch (SBRB) of the National Human Genome Research Institute has several openings for postdoctoral fellows that will be filled on a rolling basis. The SBRB has the mission to carry out research in the translation of genomic discoveries for health promotion, disease prevention and health care improvements. In recognition that translation of new genomic discoveries towards improved health will require interdisciplinary collaboration, we seek fellows from a broad range of disciplinary backgrounds. We are seeking candidates with interest in social networks and health, prevention of tobacco use and other behavioral interventions, health psychology, health disparities, patient-provider communication, and family adaptation to risk. The fellowships come with competitive stipends and the opportunity to work closely with our nationally recognized investigators. Potential applicants can learn more about the Branch and position at http://www.genome.gov/SBRB.
