Applications for the Multidisciplinary Training Program in Child and Adolescent Health (TL1) are now being accepted. The program provides postdoctoral fellows in pediatrics, engineering and data science, who are interested in solving child health problems, with mentoring, protected research time, and other resources and training that are key to successful research.
This novel program seeks to promote interactions among both mentors and trainees in pediatrics and engineering in order to encourage creative thinking and new approaches in child-health research. The overall goal of the TL1 program is to address the need for well-trained researchers in pediatrics by attracting talented trainees, equipping them with the tools to succeed, and retaining their commitment to be independent investigators.
Northwestern University and the TL1 program are committed to identifying and implementing ways to create and support a diverse and inclusive campus community. As the TL1 strives for diversity of scientific discipline, we also strive for a community of fellows and mentors from different backgrounds and perspectives to engage in a mutual exchange of ideas and experiences. Those belonging to groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in research education and training (e.g., certain racial and ethnic minorities and individuals with disabilities) are strongly encouraged to apply to this program.
