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 beginning in the summer of 2020. 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. 

 

We are seeking candidates who are committed to a research career in intellectual and developmental disabilities, have completed prior research and training in the field, and have an outstanding academic record. 

 

NIH also provides funds for tuition, travel, and research supplies. In addition to the NIH stipend, the Waisman Center offers a $3000 annual supplement, and trainees are eligible for excellent health insurance coverage. NIH requires that trainees in this program be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the United States. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible. Trainees or scholars in these programs who are permanent residents of the U.S. must submit a notary’s signed statement with the appointment form certifying that they have (1) a permanent resident card (USCIS Form I-551) or (2) other legal verification of such status.
