University of Rochester CTSI TL1 Population Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowship

The UR CTSI aims to cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment that guides and transforms our approaches to healthcare, education, research and community partnerships. Through this fellowship, postdocs are mentored by an interdisciplinary team with members in population health, basic science and at least one mentor from another CTSA hub or University of Rochester partner institution. The program allows up to three in-person or virtual rotations of 2-8 weeks, with at least one rotation in a research or community setting at a different translational level from that of the trainee’s background. With an Individual Development Plan, training is customized to each fellow.

The program also leverages existing University of Rochester infrastructure including the UR CTSI, Institute for Data Science, Center for Biomedical Informatics, Department of Public Health Sciences, Center for Community Health and Prevention, and other training resources.
