The Carolina Consortium on Human Development at the Center for Developmental Science invites applications for NICHD (NRSA) postdoctoral traineeships. It is anticipated that several postdoctoral fellowships will be available. Positions are for one year, with renewal for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance.

Advanced training will be provided in the study of individuals in changing contexts (e.g., families, peer groups, schools) using multiple levels of analysis ranging from biology to socio-cultural. The Center and Consortium faculty have primary appointments in over 20 departments or schools at six neighboring universities and colleges (Duke University, Meredith College, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and University of North Carolina at Greensboro), as well as several other collaborating research universities in the United States and abroad.

Fellowship candidates are expected to have a demonstrated commitment to interdisciplinary longitudinal study, and must have completed a terminal degree in their field (e.g., PhD, MD, DrPH, EdD) by the time of their appointment. In accordance with NIH regulations, applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
