Position Details

Title Postdoctoral Fellowship Pediatrics
Specific Title
Appointment Type Postdoctoral Fellow
Department IUSM - Pediatrics
Campus IU School of Medicine Indianapolis
Position Summary

The Department of Pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. The position will offer significant opportunities to participate in
interdisciplinary research, refine analytic skills and generate publications. The fellow will be involved in conducting research focused on a cohort of mothers and their babies with a diagnosis of neonatal abstinence syndrome. Specific projects include exploring the epidemiology of
connection to treatment and other social services among these mothers and tracking
developmental outcomes of their children using a wide variety of existing data. These data will include clinical, public health, justice, and social services data. The fellowship will be for one year with the possibility of an additional year based on mutual interest and the fellow’s track record. Additional development opportunities include participating in seminars and work‐in‐progress sessions and training in health services research, informatics, and public health research. The current fellowship is a position within the Child Health Services Research division but with access to faculty within Neonatology, Adolescent Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Regenstrief Institute. Thus, fellows would have access to over forty interdisciplinary faculty, nine postdoctoral fellows and several support staff engaged in extramurally‐funded research.

Indiana University is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified
applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, ethnicity,
religion, age, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status, or protected
veteran status. This institution is also a provider of ADA services.
