NLM-Funded Predoctoral Training Positions

The Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah is the recipient of a National Library of Medicine (NLM) T15 Training Grant. This grant funds research training of 6 predocs and 3 postdoc students in biomedical informatics. 

Predoctoral applications are considered during the general admissions process every year with admittance for fall semester. Postdoctoral applications do not follow the general admissions timelines. Please contact the Academic Program Manager before starting an application to confirm funding availability.

NLM-Funded Postdoctoral Fellowships

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 (M.D., Ph.D., PharmD, or other healthcare doctorate):

    Trainees in this category are strongly encouraged to pursue Biomedical Informatics postdoctoral training, leading to a degree (Master's or Ph.D.).

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

  2. 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.

Each NLM informatics research training program makes special efforts to recruit individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and those from economically, socially, culturally or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, into careers in biomedical informatics. These positions are for US citizens and permanent residents.
