Training Grant Funding

T32 Program 

The University of Utah Interdisciplinary Training T32 Program in Computational Approaches to Diabetes and Metabolism Research will crosstrain a cadre of predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in the computational and mathematical sciences and in the biological basis of diabetes and obesity. These bioinformatics scientist trainees will gain the expertise and leadership skills to apply computational and mathematical methods to complex biological questions that will ultimately impact the prevention, treatment, and outcomes of people with diabetes and related metabolic diseases.This training program will consist of a combination of mentored research and career development training, coursework, and extensive interactions with faculty and trainees across campus and beyond.

National Library of Medicine (NLM) Funded Postdoctoral Training

The Department of Biomedical Informatics is the recipient of a National Library of Medicine T-15 training grant. This grant funds postdoctoral positions limited to US citizens or green card holders, and can take two forms:

  1. Postdoctoral trainees with a doctorate in a health-related field (MD, PhD, PharmD, or other healthcare doctorate):

Trainees in this category are strongly encouraged to pursue Biomedical Informatics postdoctoral training, leading to a degree (Masters or PhD).

The position is funded for up to 3 years. Stipend support rates can be found on the NLM website.

Applicants in this category who choose to pursue a degree are required to submit an application to the Biomedical informatics graduate training program. For more information, contact the Academic Program Manager

  1. Postdoctoral trainees with a doctorate in informatics, computer science, or a related field:

Trainees in this category are eligible for funding between 1-3 years while pursuing advanced informatics training, which typically does not lead to a degree. These positions are funded at the NLM stipend support rates:

Application Requirments to apply for a position in this category:
