02 Dec 2014 8:16 AM | SAVIR Executive Office (Administrator)

The Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center and the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA are offering post-doctoral training in Pediatric Injury Research, with positions available for summer/fall, 2015. This training program is funded through a US National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH) T-32 grant.

 

The goal of this training program is to prepare US investigators to specialize in pediatric injury research and develop productive academic scientists and scholars in this field. We define injury research broadly to include intentional violence and unintentional injury. Relevant research areas include elucidating the risk factors and causes of injuries, injury prevention strategies, acute and chronic care of injured patients, outcomes from trauma, and interventions to return the injured individual to their full potential.

 

The Program includes coursework, seminars and an intensively mentored research experience. We will provide trainees with methodological knowledge and practical skills for conducting high quality interdisciplinary research in an environment that infuses them with the excitement of research, and nurtures early career development. We believe that our graduates will become research leaders prepared to conduct interdisciplinary research using the highest ethical standards and capitalizing on state of the art research methods.

 

The Training Program is two years in length, with the option of a third year for exceptionally productive trainees. A Master of Public Health or Master of Science degree is available as part of the Training Program.

 

Post-doctoral level scholars are welcome from all health professions, and specialties within those professions including pediatrics, surgery, dentistry, urology, rehabilitation medicine, emergency medicine, anesthesia/critical care, psychiatry, psychology, epidemiology, health services, public health, social work, nursing and health economics. Applicants must be US citizens or non-citizen nationals, or an individual lawfully admitted for permanent residence who possesses an Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151 or I-551), or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident prior to appointment. Individuals with temporary or student visas are not eligible.
