Pre and Post-Doctoral Training


The Brown School supports two NIH-funded (T32) Training programs for students enrolled in our PhD Program (predoctoral fellows ) and for graduate scholars holding a research doctorate (postdoctoral fellows).  Our trainees have been very successful in their pursuit of research funding through competitive funding sources and our alumni hold faculty positions at some of the nation’s top research institutions.  In the past 13 years, over 30 pre-doctoral trainees have secured external funding for their dissertation work, several of them through NIH. Eligible applicants for the predoctoral fellowships must apply and be accepted into the Brown School Doctoral Program. Applications are accepted annually.  Postdoctoral applicants must check with the T32 coordinator, Stacey McCrary for additional information on these programs.
