Advanced Rehabilitation Training: Interventions for Neurologic Communication Disorders Northwestern University – Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

This Fellowship Program provides rigorous, in-depth research training to postdoctoral fellows from programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders. It is designed to prepare them for careers as independent researchers who have the skills necessary to conduct high quality interdisciplinary research addressing the rehabilitation of acquired communication disorders that accompany neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), or Parkinson’s disease.

Postdoctoral fellows will complete an intensive, two-year training program that will allow initiation of their own research agenda, scholarly papers as first author, and grant development with potential for receipt of extramural funding. Applicants must commit to pursuing their research training for two years and on a full-time basis, devoting at least 40 hours per week to the overall program.
