Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
The Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting postdoctoral trainees for its NICHD-funded Postdoctoral Training Program in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research. Appointments will be for 2 years. The program provides multidisciplinary training with an emphasis on social affective processes, communication, family processes, epidemiology, genetics, and biobehavioral research on intellectual and developmental disabilities. Faculty use sophisticated statistical approaches, longitudinal research methods, brain imaging methods, GWAS, social genomics, and psychobiology, among other approaches to data collection and analysis as applied to intellectual and developmental disability.

Postdoctoral stipends are determined by NIH, based on years of relevant experience beyond the doctoral degree. NIH also provides funds for tuition, travel, and research supplies. In addition, the Waisman Center offers a $3000 annual supplement, and trainees are eligible for health insurance coverage. NIH requires that trainees in this program be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible.

Post-docs entering this program will become part of a multidisciplinary center dedicated to advancing knowledge about human development, developmental disabilities, and neurodegenerative diseases throughout the life course. Our team of researchers, scientists, clinicians, and staff seek answers to questions about the causes and consequences of developmental disabilities like autism, Down syndrome, and fragile X, etc.

The Waisman Center encourages qualified individuals with disabilities to apply.
