Traineeships in Pain and Associated Symptoms Research at The University of Iowa
The University of Iowa College of Nursing is soliciting applications for traineeships in research on pain and associated symptoms. Currently, candidates with a PhD and a background in nursing are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship beginning either in August 2016 or January 2017.
The goal of this traineeship is to support nurse scientists in developing and extending knowledge and skills in research on pain and its associated symptoms, with opportunities to incorporate Health Information Technology in their research. The Institutional NRSA (T32) training grant will prepare a total of 10 nursing PhD students and 10 postdoctoral scholars over 5 years (2016-2021).
