(Doctor of Naturopathy), D.S.W., Psy.D, as well as a doctoral degree in nursing research).  Positions are made on an annual basis with additional opportunities for continued funding with sufficient progress.  Successful candidates should demonstrate a strong commitment to an academic research career.  Contact Dr. Carol A. Ballinger, carolballinger@uabmc.edu to facilitate the application process.

 Available:  Amount of award is dependent on the applicant’s experience and follows NIH guidelines for NRSA stipend levels, $1,000 in travel funds and affiliated health insurance, tuition and fees.
