SUMMARY: Postdoctoral Associate in Medical Education Administration, Duke University School of Medicine

Working with this mentor, the Postdoctoral Associate will develop an individualized learning plan, a timeline for completion, one or more academic products, and identify needed resources.
The Postdoctoral Associate will report to Dr. Leonard White, Associate Professor in Neurology and Associate Director for Integrative Human Biomedical Sciences in the Duke MBS program. Dr.White will function as the Postdoctoral Associate’s supervisor and may also serve as the fellow’s primary men tor, depending on the specific educational background and professional interests of the fellow.
The postdoctoral fellowship is a full-time position, renewable after the first year contingent on performance and funding.
