Post-Doctoral Program

The Global Initiative for Neuropsychiatric Genetics Education in Research also leads a professional development program for post-doctoral scholars. This program aims to provide early-career researchers with the experience needed to lead multinational team research projects.

GINGER does this by integrating the post-doctoral program with the GINGER Research Fellows program. The GINGER Research Fellows separate into smaller research groups based on areas of interest, and are then assigned a GINGER post-doctoral scholar to serve as the research team lead. Leads are responsible for developing the research question and, in collaboration with the GINGER Research Fellow team members, assigning project roles and setting an overall timeline for completion of the work.

The first cohort of GINGER post-doctoral scholars launched in July 2018. Click on the tabs below to read more about the current group projects that they are leading:
