The Social and Behavioral Research Branch (SBRB), an intramural research branch of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), invites recent graduates to pursue multidisciplinary training in genomics and health.


Researchers in SBRB investigate social, behavioral, and ethical factors that facilitate translation of genomic discoveries for health promotion, disease prevention, genetic counseling, and health care improvements. Trainees will work closely with internationally-recognized social and behavioral scientists, clinical investigators, and bioethicists during their fellowship. To learn more about the SBRB's research mission and ongoing research, see the Social and Behavioral Research Branch Web page.

Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a 1- to 3-page letter of research interests, and the names of three potential referees through NIH's online Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) application system at:

The NIH Postbaccalaureate IRTA Fellowship Program

Applications are accepted throughout the year.
