Career Opportunities

Fellowships

Washington University - St. Louis, MO

Obesity is an area of critical public health concern, as it is associated with significant cardiovascular health risks and the onset of cardiovascular disease. This training program at Washington University School of Medicine proposes to recruit highly-qualified pre- and postdoctoral trainees from diverse backgrounds across disciplines and place them within transdisciplinary mentoring teams with faculty members who are leading researchers in the fields of obesity and cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment. This training program is strategically poised to launch the next generation of scientists to design, implement, and evaluate multilevel, cutting-edge solutions to the prevention and treatment of weight and eating disorders and CVD.

These training experiences will produce a diverse cohort of young scientists with the transdisciplinary research skills necessary to address the complex problems of weight and eating disorders and cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment across the lifespan. The study, prevention, and treatment of obesity require the transdisciplinary integration of medical, behavioral, genetic, metabolic, and public health research approaches and findings. The study of obesity and the relation of its prevention and treatment to CVD risk must therefore be approached from a multi-level, transdisciplinary perspective requiring specialized training in translational research methods.

Mentors will work with trainees to develop a training plan including:

  1. collaborative mentoring
  2. didactic and professional development training
  3. development and completion of translational research projects, grant applications, and more.
