ANNOUNCEMENT OF POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS The Carolina Consortium on Human Development at the Center for Developmental Science



The Carolina Consortium on Human Development at the Center for Developmental Science invites applications for NICHD (NRSA) postdoctoral traineeships.  It is anticipated that several postdoctoral fellowships will be available, contingent on funding.  Positions are for one year, with renewal for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance.  Advanced training will be provided in the longitudinal study of individuals and families in changing contexts.  The Center and Consortium mentor faculty have primary appointments in over 20 departments or schools of 4 neighboring universities and colleges (Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and North Carolina State University), as well as several other collaborating research universities in the United States and abroad.


Postdoctoral candidates are expected to have a demonstrated commitment to interdisciplinary longitudinal study, and must have completed a terminal degree in their field (e.g., PhD, MD, DrPH, EdD) by the time of their appointment. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents in accordance with NIH regulations.


A detailed description of the fellowship program can be obtained from the CDS home page at

A link to the online application will be available on our homepage beginning February 1, 2016.


The online application requires basic information along with a letter of interest, a statement of the candidate's proposed research with current CCHD mentor faculty members, a curriculum vita, and examples of research and/or publications.  Additionally, three letters of recommendation and graduate transcripts should be sent to the attention of Jennifer Coffman (contact information below).
