NINR 2014 Boot Camp - Big Data in Symptoms Research
July 21-25, 2014; NIH Campus, Bethesda, MD
Registration opens: April 1, 2014
The NINR Big Data Methodologies Boot Camp, part of the NINR Symptom Research Methodologies Series, is a one-week intensive research training course at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. Sponsored by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), the course is administered by the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) as one of the Bio-Trac programs.
NINR's 2014 Boot Camp will provide a foundation in methodologies for using Big Data in research. The purpose of the course is to increase the research capability of graduate students and faculty. The course will feature lectures by distinguished guest speakers, classroom discussion, and laboratory training.
The course is provided by the NINR at no cost. Attendees are required to pay for housing, food, and transportation expenses incurred during program participation.
Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program
Deadline: April 16, 2014
The Health and Aging Policy Fellows Program aims to create a cadre of leaders who will serve as change agents in health and aging policy to ultimately improve the health of older adults. The year-long fellowship offers a rich and unique training and enrichment program that is focused on current policy issues, communication skills development, and professional networking opportunities to provide fellows with the experience and skills necessary to affect change through policy at a local, state or federal level.
Fellows are typically placed at Congressional or Executive Branch settings where they work on key policy projects. The program offers two different tracks, residential and non-residential. The residential track includes a year-long placement in Washington, D.C. or at a state agency where fellows are immersed full-time in a policy-focused placement. Non-residential track fellows remain, for the most part, at their home institution, and focus on a project addressing a key policy issue with brief placement(s) throughout the year at relevant policy settings. The health policy projects may be national, state, local, or institution-based.
Who Should Apply
The program has a broad interdisciplinary focus, and fellows have included physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, dieticians, healthcare administrators, epidemiologists, economists, and lawyers from academic and practice settings, spanning career stages from newly minted PhDs to senior professors and community leaders. The program is open to U.S. citizens and seeks to achieve racial, ethnic, gender, and discipline diversity. Applicants from groups that historically have been underrepresented are strongly encouraged to apply.
R David B. Larson Fellowship in Health and Spirituality
Deadline: April 17, 2014
The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress invites qualified scholars to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship in the field of health and spirituality. Made possible by a generous endowment from the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality (ICIHS), the fellowship is named in honor of the Center's late founder, David B. Larson, an epidemiologist and psychiatrist, who focused on potentially relevant but understudied factors which might help in prevention, coping, and recovering from illness.
The fellowship is designed to continue Dr. Larson's legacy of promoting meaningful, scholarly study of these two important and increasingly interrelated fields. It seeks to encourage the pursuit of scholarly excellence in the scientific study of the relation of religiousness and spirituality to physical, mental, and social health. The fellowship provides an opportunity for a period of six to twelve months of concentrated use of the collections of the Library of Congress, through full-time residency in the Library's John W. Kluge Center. The Kluge Center is located in the splendid Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library, and it furnishes attractive work and discussion space for its scholars as well as easy access to the Library's specialized staff and to the intellectual community of Washington. If necessary, special arrangements may be made with the National Library of Medicine for access to its materials as well.

Building Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH)
Deadline: April 26, 2014
The University of Wisconsin BIRCWH Program has three overarching goals:
To develop a cadre of academic research scientists skilled in interdisciplinary teamwork who will be leaders in addressing health disparities and inequities in women's health, and in addressing sex/gender differences in health and diseaseTo attract and retain underrepresented minority investigators to a field that has broad implications for improving the health of our societyTo advance women's health into a major component of the University of Wisconsin's research portfolio, both to attract talented researchers to the field, and, to speed the application of advances in women's health to the betterment of society.
Great strides have been made in improving the health of women and understanding how sex and gender differences impact health and disease, however, health inequities and health disparities in relation to race and ethnicity, gender, geographic location of residence, sexual identity and orientation, and disability continue to exist. Therefore in the BIRCWH program the emphasis is on research into health equity, health disparities and sex and gender differences in women's health. It invites almost any biologic, psychological, behavioral, social, or policy focus of research, and, it requires that the research be interdisciplinary and include translational components. Hence, the goal is to build a vibrant research program in health equity and health disparities and sex and gender differences in women's health.
