Omics and Symptom Science Pre-Doctoral Fellowship

To meet the goals of precision health, there is an urgent need to develop the next generation of nursing scientists poised to lead interdisciplinary teams that integrate ‘omics’-based measures with clinical outcomes research. To accomplish this, a concerted effort needs to be made in the training of nursing science doctoral students with skills necessary to incorporate and evaluate omics (genomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, microbiome, genomics, epigenomics) in health and disease.
To be eligible for appointment for this interdisciplinary research training program, applicants must:
1) be US citizens or permanent residents
2) currently enrolled in the School of Nursing PhD program.

All application materials need to be sent electronically to the Training Director at

Applicants for the position need to provide:
1) a cover letter explaining what they hope to gain from the predoctoral fellowship, including
research interests and goals and how they align with the training provided in this T32.
2) a copy of their current CV
3) 1-2 samples of scholarly writing (journal articles, essays)
4) a letter of recommendation. This letter should be sent electronically directly to the training program director from the recommender (not from the applicant) and should speak to applicant’s scholarly abilities, areas for growth and future potential.

For more information about this program, please contact the Training Program Directors, Dr. Margaret Heitkemper at or Dr. Hilaire Thompson at
