The University of Michigan Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention is recruiting outstanding early-career research investigators to join a cohort of postdoctoral fellows who are part of an NIH-funded T32 training grant, Firearm Safety Among Children and Teens (FACTS): Multi-Disciplinary Research Training Program. The program aims to address the critical need to develop a scientific workforce to address the leading cause of pediatric mortality by establishing the nation’s first program dedicated exclusively to providing post-doctoral research training on the prevention of firearm injuries among children and teens.

The successful candidate will undertake an intensive two-year post-doctoral training program in which they will acquire core skills in research methods through a combination of applied research and training on the prevention of firearm injuries. The training program aims to prepare fellows for research independence and an academic career. Successful candidates may come from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds and have prior experience working at any stage along the translational research spectrum or on any level within the socio-ecological model. We are particularly interested in candidates with research interests addressing existing inequalities, disparities, and inequities related to firearm injury. Learn more and apply.

The U-M Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention aims to generate new knowledge and advance innovative solutions to reduce firearm death and injury across the United States. Our mission is to address the substantial burden of firearm injuries occurring across the lifespan by conducting high-quality research, education, training, and outreach.
