Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of Genetics

The Center for Research on Ethical, Legal and Social Implications of
Psychiatric, Neurologic and Behavioral Genetics at Columbia University
anticipates the availability of post-doctoral fellowship positions to begin
September 2013.

The goal of the fellowship is to train researchers whose work is focused on
the ethical, legal and social implications of advances in genetics, with a
special focus on psychiatric, neurologic, and behavioral genetics. Training
programs, which will generally last 2 years, include course work, mentored
research activities, guidance in seeking research funding, and participation
in the activities of the Center. All activities are designed to accommodate
the skills and interests of the fellows.

Candidates should have a doctorate (e.g., PhD, JD, MD) in the social and
behavioral sciences, genetics or other basic sciences, epidemiology,
nursing, medicine, law, or one of the humanities, and substantial empirical
research skills.

For further information about the program and application materials, please
