Background & Purpose

To increase capacity in diabetes clinical psychology and diabetes psychology research, JDRF has created a Diabetes Psychology Fellowship program which is open to applicants in the US and in Canada. The applicant is required to work with a mentor who can provide a training environment conducive to a career in type 1 diabetes-relevant psychosocial research. At the time of activating the award, the applicant must have a doctoral degree (PhD, PsyD, MD), or the equivalent from an accredited institution and must not be simultaneously serving an internship or residency.

Program Description

The JDRF psychosocial fellowship program is a combination of clinical diabetes care and diabetes research. Each postdoctoral fellowship is a 12-month term. Fellowships positions will start in summer/fall 2021.

The fellowship program is a combination of clinical diabetes care and diabetes research. Each applicant must have documented research experience, a career interest in diabetes specialized psychology and must have completed a PsyD or a PhD program in the field of psychology.

The fellowship is intended for those at a relatively early stage of their career. Ordinarily, the most recent doctoral degree will have been received no more than 5 years prior to the application submission. Applicants must be based in the United States or Canada.

There are no citizenship requirements. To assure continued excellence and diversity among applicants and awardees, this funding opportunity welcomes applications from all qualified individuals and encourages applications from persons with disabilities, women, and members of minority groups underrepresented in the sciences.

Fellowships cannot be awarded to the same fellow more than 1 time.
