    The University of Washington’s Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center (HIPRC) is accepting applications for a post-doctoral training program in pediatric injury research with a start date of July 1, 2017. The program is funded by a T32 grant from NICHD.

    This is a two-year fellowship (with option for a 3rd year) for individuals who want to have an academic career in which injury research will be a central focus. Since the T32 is from NICHD, the individual must primarily be interested in injuries in the pediatric age group. Injury research is defined broadly to include research into the risk factors for injury, the incidence of injury, the acute care of injured children, and the rehabilitation of injured patients. Research may examine intentional (self-inflicted and assault related) injuries as well as unintentional (accidental) injuries. Past post-doctoral fellows have included MDs and PhDs with backgrounds including surgery, psychology, rehabilitation medicine, epidemiology, and health services research.

    Additional information and applications are available on the HIPRC website: Questions may be directed to Dr. Frederick Rivara: and Dr. Monica Vavilala:
