This three-year fellowship provides basic, translational, and clinical training and aims to further develop talented PhD or MD/PhDs into successful clinical/translational research scientists. Applications are reviewed quarterly with the next cycle due dates of March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2019. Additional information regarding eligibility, application process, and current trainees and program alumni profiles are found at www.mdanderson.org/CPRITTRIUMPH.

Please contact Dr. Kari Brewer Savannah, Program Manager, with any questions at ksavannah@mdanderson.org.


Dr. Bruce Chase, UNO Professor of Biology, is looking for potential applicants for a planned instructor position in undergraduate neuroscience at UNO.  The Neuroscience program has about 150 undergraduate majors, and anticipates obtaining funding to hire a full-time instructor (renewable) in the fall.   They welcome both experienced and newly minted (or very close to being finished) PhDs who are seeking teaching experience in an undergraduate setting.  The position is full-time and would include teaching several classes each semester and advising Neuroscience majors.  If we can identify an internal (UNO/UNMC) candidate, it will be faster for us to obtain permission to make the hire.   So, please spread the word to your colleagues at UNMC.  All eligible and interested applicants are asked to informally contact Jeff French (jfrench@unomaha.edu) or Dr. Bruce Chase (bchase@unomaha.edu).

Analyses will incorporate multidimensional data, including driving, medical, physiologic, computer vision, and geographic information system (GIS) data.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will intellectually develop research questions and analyses, including contributing to the development of new research questions and funding proposals. This is a great opportunity to get experience with novel datasets and clinical translational research on modeling human performance and safety in real-world settings, in addition to building a CV with presentations, publications, and funded grants.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate will:
o Identify, intellectually develop, and implement research questions on human behavior, physiology, and neurocognitive performance in the context of complex environments, human-machine interactions, and disease.
o Use statistical analyses and other data science approaches to manipulate, analyze, and provide answers to research questions using large amounts of structured and unstructured data.
o Apply your research results (positive and null) to develop future clinical translational research programs and intervention techniques.
o Work closely with MBHL research staff and collaborators (internal and external) to develop innovative new research ideas and data analyses.
o Share research findings with the broader academic community through peer-reviewed conference presentations and publications.
o Follow IRB Protocol, HIPAA, and Standard Operating Procedures in Human Subjects Research.

MBHL (https://www.unmc.edu/mbhl/) is an interdisciplinary group of researchers who are committed to clinical translational research on real-world behavior and safety in healthy and patient populations. Our collaborative team combines expertise from medicine, cognitive science, neuroscience, human factors, driving research, statistics, computer science, biomechanics, and public policy. We focus on understanding how humans behave when interacting with technology in-the-lab and in-the-field, with a focus on mobility and cognition. To address these questions, we study human behavior in the context of human-machine interactions and in complex environments using novel technologies for monitoring of functional abilities, physiology, and performance. We use the results of our research to inform patient and clinician education, policy, and technology development with the goal of improving health, mobility, and quality of life in individuals of all ages.
