Eating Disorders Research T32

The Midwest Regional Postdoctoral Training Grant in Eating Disorders Research is an NIMH-funded T32 training program that was started in 2009. This training program provides multidisciplinary research training to doctoral degree graduates (MD, PhD) planning academic research careers in the field of eating disorders. 

Each T32 Post-doctoral Fellow is engaged in several active research projects, including collaborative and independent research. The program is organized around a series of individualized experiences for each trainee including mentoring and course work. Several in-person multisite meetings are held each year. In addition, video-based technology is integrated into our T32 program to facilitate cross-site communication and collaboration. Educational opportunities include weekly didactic and journal club/research seminars as well as cross-site mentoring in statistics and grant-writing.

The Midwest Regional Post-Doctoral Training Program in Eating Disorders Research

The Midwest Regional Post-Doctoral Training Program in Eating Disorders Research is currently inviting applications for post-doctoral fellowships to begin in the summer of 2024. This NIMH-funded (T32 MH082761) post-doctoral T32 fellowship is located at three sites: University of Chicago (Chicago, IL), University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN), and Sanford Research (Fargo, ND). Although post-doctoral fellows apply to one specific site and work closely with the faculty at that site, they also receive mentorship and training from faculty at all sites. For the 2024-2025 academic year, we anticipate open slots at each of our three sites (pending continued grant funding).

Potential applicants are encouraged to submit their application to the Site Director at locations of interest:

Applicants are requested to submit the following materials for their application:

  • A letter of intent that includes a statement of interests
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Reprints of three scientific publications
  • Three letters of reference, with one of the letters from a director of training (if background is in psychology), residency training director (if background is in psychiatry/medicine), or equivalent if training is in other disciplines

The application deadline is October 15, 2023, but applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
