    University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB)

    This program offers two pre-doctoral fellowships and one post-doctoral
    Its goal is to train researchers capable of advancing the field of physical
    rehabilitation in order to improve the lives of people with functional
    The program offers both pre and post-doctoral trainees the opportunity to
    research regarding long-term neurological, musculoskeletal or immunological
    dysfunction, with an emphasis on amelioration of declines in mobility and
    activity. Three substantive areas of focus are: stroke, spinal cord injury
    rheumatological and immunological disorders, which reflect the extensive
    experience and on-going interdisciplinary research projects of its 30
    Research opportunities for trainees include studies involving innovative
    upper and
    lower extremity exercise paradigms in subjects with a variety of disabilities,
    parallel mechanistic studies, and epidemiologic studies. Trainees
    participate in
    weekly research seminars, journal clubs, and university sponsored courses in
    research ethics and human subjects protection. Three mentors are assigned to
    each trainee according to research interests and preferences of trainees
    desired areas of expertise. US citizenship or permanent residency is

    Post-doctoral trainees are expected to have high-level academic and research
    skills upon acceptance into the program. Fellows are guaranteed two years of
    funding with a third year optional. The fellowship period offers mentored
    and research training and protected time with which to develop an
    independent line
    of research. All post-doctoral trainees are expected by the end of their
    training to
    write independent research grants to help fund them during their early
    years of
    transition to an academic position as an Assistant Professor.

    Program faculty include individuals with national and international research
    reputations from the University of Maryland School of Medicine Departments of
    Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, Neurology, Epidemiology, Anatomy,
    Physiology, and from other affiliated locations including Biomechanics (NIH),
    Motor Learning and Motor Control (UMCP).
