Postdoctoral Fellowships Available in "Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity"

Indiana University invites applications for up to two post-doctoral traineeships to be supported by NICHD via an NIH T32 training grant entitled, 'Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity.'  We offer broadly integrative training in the areas of sexuality, sexual behavior, reproduction and development, with attention given to a wide variety of species including humans.  Research conducted by participants addresses key questions in the development and expression of sex differences and sexual patterns, as well as maternal and paternal effects on morphological, sexual, and social development. Indiana University's excellent support for research and its globally recognized strengths in human sexual and reproductive health, gender studies, animal behavior, endocrinology, and the evolution of development ensure high quality training.  For more information see http://www.indiana.edu/~reprodiv/index.htm

Although applications from prospective trainees who work on non-human systems will be considered, we especially welcome applicants who are interested in addressing these questions in humans and who seek cross-disciplinary training that will enrich and deepen their work and its applications. A Ph.D. in psychology, anthropology, gender studies, biology, neuroscience, chemistry, or a related field is required. Access and interaction with faculty of different specializations is built into the training experience. Candidates are encouraged to make initial contacts with training faculty who might serve as primary mentors: http://www.indiana.edu/~reprodiv/faculty.htm

Traineeships include a competitive salary based on current NIH pay scale commensurate with experience, and modest funds to support research and travel. The successful applicant will help foster collaborations among faculty and serve as a professional model for pre-doctoral trainees.

To apply, please visit the following website to find instructions and forms to download: http://www.indiana.edu/~reprodiv/apply/. Please e-mail your completed application to Linda Summers at lisummer@indiana.edu or (less desired) mail it to 402 N.

If you have specific questions about the process, please contact Ellen Ketterson (ketterso@indiana.edu) who will answer your questions or forward your inquiry to the appropriate person.
