MULTIDISCIPLINARY TRAINING PROGRAM

(T32) IN CARDIOVASCULAR EPIDEMIOLOGY

The Boston University Section of Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology is seeking postdoctoral candidates for its T32 Training Program in Cardiovascular Epidemiology awarded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Trainees will focus their training on the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease such as coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and other forms of vascular disease, following one of the training pathways: statistical genetics and genomics, computational biology and bioinformatics, or clinical epidemiology.

The successful candidate will participate in training activities including pathway-specific coursework and workshops, as well as individual professional development plan workshops, one-on-one professional counseling and career planning, grant writing workshops, research seminars, journal internships, and working on research projects with a Boston University senior investigator on longitudinal epidemiological studies such as Framingham Heart Study, Long Life Family Study, Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal study, and other cohort studies. All trainees will be supervised by their assigned faculty mentor as well as by the program’s co-directors for progress evaluation.

Training Program Start Date: April 1, 2022 (available slots also in July and September 2022)

Qualifications required:

  1. US Citizen or green card holder
  2. a) Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Genetics/Genomics or related field   or   MD degree

b) Programming skills (SAS and/or R) preferred

This position is a postdoctoral training opportunity paid a stipend, and the successful individual will be engaged in a 2-year period of mentored advanced training and professional development following completion of a doctoral degree program. Currently, BU is not able to offer traditional employee benefits to non-employee postdocs due to IRS regulations related to expanded fellowship income.

Interested candidates should send the following materials to Rachelle Joseph at rajoseph@bu.edu :

  • Cover letter indicating reason for applying to this training program
  • Curriculum vitae
  • 2 recommendation letters

Boston University is an equal opportunity employer. Under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. For more information, please contact Rachelle Joseph, administrator, at rajoseph@bu.edu.
