Prospective graduate fellows: Not yet an IU grad student? You'll need to apply to IU.
We seek outstanding pre- and postdoctoral students who have a strong desire to pursue research in conjunction with CTRD faculty mentors in the subjects related to the evolution, development and expression of sex and gender with a special emphasis on parental effects on development.
2-year NIH traineeship (assuming satisfactory performance and award renewal by NIH) offered in integrative research in sexuality, sexual behavior, reproduction and development, with attention given to a wide variety of species, including humans. PhD in psychology, anthropology, gender studies, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, or a related field is required.
Funding is from NIH T32 training grant, "Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity."
For more information, make initial contact with one of the training faculty who might serve as primary mentors.
Applications are due 15 September 2013; position to begin 1 January 2014. Minority applicants are highly encouraged to apply. Trainees must be citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents of the US. Indiana University is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer.
Please email letters of recommendation and your completed application to Linda Summers at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The training grant supports three or four predoctoral positions with stipend levels set by NIH (currently $22,032). Appointments are generally for one year with the possibility but not the expectation of renewal. Decisions regarding renewal will be based on progress reports written by the trainee, mentor evaluations, and records of achievement (publications, presentations at conferences and meetings, awards). To apply for a pre-doctoral line, you will need first to gain admission to an affiliated department or program (Biology, Chemistry, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Gender Studies, Neuroscience, Medical Sciences) and then to submit the CTRD application form via email. Preference will be given to more advanced students who have been admitted to candidacy and are affiliated with the training faculty, but unusually talented students at the beginning of their graduate careers will also be considered.
Applications for 2013-2014 predoctoral positions are due by email by 4pm on February 15, 2013.
The criteria for selection for both the pre- and postdoctoral positions will include GREs, academic record, letters of recommendation, and evidence of productive research experience, which may include presentations at scientific meetings, publications, and research grants. In addition, we will consider a brief plan of research.
All trainees will be expected to participate in the core elements of the program. Examples are enrollment in core courses, pursuing training in research ethics, spending time with visiting lecturers, presenting at the Animal Behavior Research Conference, serving as models for younger students, and participating in a common forum for discussion. We will expect regular attendance at CTRD events, which will occur in collaboration with CISAB, KI, and other participating departments/programs.
All applicants will be given equal consideration regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity. In addition, special efforts will be made to increase the diversity of our trainees. Trainees must be citizens, non-citizen nationals or permanent residents of the US.
