Postdoctoral Research Opportunities.  The SCC is highly invested in providing education and training to the next generation of sleep and circadian researchers and clinicians.  We are proud of our NHLBI-funded T32 postdoctoral fellowship, entitled “Translational Research Training in Sleep Medicine.”  This program primarily focuses on postdoctoral training of PhD- and MD-level trainees, but includes a secondary focus on mentored medical student research.

We offer clinical training through our Behavioral Sleep Medicine training fellowship, which is accredited by the Society for Behavioral Sleep Medicine.

In addition to these programs, our faculty are involved in a number of other education and/or training opportunities.  These include other T32 postdoctoral fellowships on Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine Research Training, Training for Transformative Discovery in Psychiatry, Clinical Research in Geriatric Psychiatry, Clinical Research Training for Psychologists, Translational Pulmonary Vascular Biology, and Epidemiology of Aging.                                              .             .  

Furthermore, our faculty have also been in directed research through the Psychology department and others, the Hot Metal Bridge Program, the Breckenridge Summer Research Fellowships, Health Sciences Summer Research Fellowships through the Honors College, and Chancellor's Undergraduate Research Fellowships.  

Finally, we have a number of regular research meetings and talks that provide opportunities for education and to meet fellow researchers interested in sleep and circadian rhythms.  These include the Research in Progress (RIP) meeting and Sleep Medicine Institute Grand Rounds.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about any of these programs!
