Job Details

T32 Postdoctoral Training Fellowship Opportunity in Intellectual and Developmental Disorders at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Through a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) (https://www.einsteinmed.edu/centers/iddrc/) is offering postdoctoral training to eligible candidates interested in careers in the biomedical sciences focused on the neurobiological underpinnings of neurodevelopmental disorders associated with intellectual disability and autism. Known for its strong foundations in basic and translational neuroscience and for its multidisciplinary cross-departmental membership, the Rose F. Kennedy IDDRC was established at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine more than 60 years ago during the John F. Kennedy administration as one of a dozen national centers focused on research in intellectual disabilities.

Eligibility. Successful candidates will be interested in IDD research coupled with excellent training in the neurosciences/biomedical research. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders) and have a PhD, MD, MD/PhD, DVM or DVM/PhD. Underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information. The Rose F. Kennedy IDDRC seeks postdoctoral candidates whose skills, and personal and professional experience, have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.

How to apply. Applicants will provide their current CV, 3 letters of recommendation and a personal statement (3-page maximum length) outlining their previous training, qualifications, and proposed areas of research interest to the IDDRC administrator, Julie.Mota@einsteinmed.edu.

Training opportunities.

Our training program consists of 37 primary faculty trainers selected from our 100+ membership in the Rose F. Kennedy IDDRC (https://www.einsteinmed.edu/centers/iddrc/training/). It is strongly encouraged that candidates reach out to trainers in their area of research interest to discuss working in their lab and possible research projects.

The IDDRC postdoctoral training program.  The overarching goal of the Rose F. Kennedy IDD postdoctoral training program is to develop the next generation of independent IDD researchers for high-impact careers. Each T32 postdoctoral trainee will be engaged in an IDD-relevant research project under the mentorship of one of the primary IDD trainers.  When appropriate to their training goals and area of study, they may also have a secondary clinical advisor. During their 2-year training plan the trainee will spend the majority of their time dedicated to research and acquiring expertise in the tools of the trade in their primary laboratory, which may include training in scientific cores and in other labs to acquire specific skill sets.  T32 fellows will also participate in a bi-weekly IDDRC seminar program, in IDDRC and departmental conferences and, when appropriate, in clinic/patient-centered events.  Skill building in grant writing and publication strategies will also be emphasized. In concert, these activities will provide in-depth research and training experiences using cutting edge approaches to foster discovery and understanding and/or new therapies for IDDs.

The training environment at Einstein and Montefiore. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine has long been a national leader in biomedical research, receiving $185 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2021. Traditional barriers between departments and specialized facilities have been eliminated by creation of centers and shared facilities that provide an interactive environment to foster joint efforts among basic and clinical scientists, clinicians and translational researchers working in >300 laboratories. In 2015 Einstein became part of the Montefiore Medical Center which includes the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) which is home to numerous specialty clinics focused on IDDs. In addition to CHAM, Einstein is also the home of the Rose F. Kennedy Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC) which has 9 clinical units boasting a remarkable 50,000 office visits/year, providing services to over 8,000 children and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The combined strengths of Einstein research laboratories and CHAM and CERC clinics provide formidable opportunities for advancing understanding and developing treatments for intellectual and developmental disorders.
