The Division of Epidemiology & Community Health
of the University of Minnesota is seeking candidates for a
postdoctoral training fellowship in cardiovascular disease
epidemiology and prevention available immediately. The two-
to three-year fellowship, which provides a stipend, is
sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. Candidates
must have either an MD or a PhD degree, and must be either a
U.S. citizen or have permanent residency status. Qualified
and interested diverse candidates are particularly sought.
Training emphasizes research methods in the
epidemiology and prevention of cardiovascular disease. The
program particularly intends to enhance the diversity of the
research workforce in cardiovascular disease epidemiology by
recruiting individuals from underrepresented/disadvantaged
populations. Division research includes work in observational
population studies, clinical trials, community studies, and
laboratory methodology. Graduates gain competency in
designing, administering, and analyzing cardiovascular
population studies or preventive programs.
Training can include formal coursework in
epidemiology, biostatistics, nutrition, physiology, and
behavioral science. Fellows may seek an MS or an MPH degree
during the course of the fellowship.
The Division has a faculty of 46, including
scholars in cardiology, behavioral science, biostatistics,
epidemiology, nutrition, and health education.
