Genome Science & Health Equity Postdoctoral Fellowship

Accepting Applications to the Genomic Science and Health Equity Postdoctoral Fellowship

The FDA Office of Minority Health and Health Equity (OMHHE) and the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) are accepting applications to the co-sponsored Genomic Science and Health Equity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.

This program will prepare the fellow to use genetic, genomic and pharmacogenomic approaches to advance minority health and health equity. The fellow will be trained in the research methodology and medical product development processes that facilitate the delivery of drugs, biologics and devices from the bench to the bedside.

The fellow will pursue genomics-related research that integrates health equity and addresses how to deliver new technology in clinical spaces. Fellows who are interested in investigating the following are encouraged to apply:


  • research aimed at increasing the translational and clinical genomic data available on minority health and health disparities populations
  • rare genomic diseases that disproportionately have an impact on minority populations
  • ethical, legal and social impacts of genomic health and healthcare disparities.

Applications are being accepted and will be screened on a rolling basis until the position is filled. The fellow is expected to start in summer or fall 2022.
