The GESIS workshop week on “Behavioral Genetics in Social Science Research” takes place October 8-12, 2018 at GESIS Cologne, Germany.Three workshops during the week will familiarize social scientists with genetic data and offer hands-on training on how to incorporate genetic information into social science analyses. Participants may register for workshops separately or for the entire week. Selected participants will have the opportunity to make a poster presentation on their own work or idea on the evening of October 8, 2018. If interested, submit a short outline (about 0.5 pages) of the research idea or project by August 20, 2018.

This postdoctoral training opportunity is for scientists and clinicians with an interest in working in cancer prevention. The CPFP provides its fellows an opportunity to develop independent research programs in cancer prevention. The centerpiece of the program is mentored, multidisciplinary research. With input from senior scientists, each fellow develops original scientific projects and reports findings at meetings and in leading journals. Application closes: August 25, 2018. The Program provides: • Competitive stipends, relocation expenses, health insurance benefits, and travel allowances • Support for up to four years • Opportunity to earn an MPH, sponsored by NCI • A cohort of fellows from STEM and other fields
As RWJF begins the work of examining its approach to networks–and how we can connect with others to build a Culture of Health–we’re pleased to be working with the Leadership Learning Community to offer free virtual trainings that provide a chance to learn about the importance of networks–as well as best practices for networks. Training sessions begin May 22 and go through Nov 14.
We are soliciting applications for a new Bio-Social training program that aims to promote and support interdisciplinary training of PhD students and Post-doctoral scholars from both the social sciences and biological/health sciences. The goal of this new and innovative training program is to produce scientists who will conduct truly integrative work that will address some of the most pressing health problems nationally and internationally. Trainees will have the opportunity to receive interdisciplinary mentorship and training in a wide array of content areas, ranging from social inequalities to biological processes. Trainees will enter from their respective disciplines and will identify a co-preceptor team comprised of a mentor from their home discipline and another representing their new interdisciplinary interest area from among the current training faculty. Requirements: Postdoctoral trainees must have received their PhD degree before the start date of the traineeship. Graduates from any academic program are eligible to apply. Applications submission is open. Please contact Sommer Barnes: firstname.lastname@example.org, for information on the application process.
