research icons in gears

A key component of NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing’s mission, as an integral part of a research-one private university “in the public service,” is to generate new knowledge and demonstrate the highest standards of excellence in research and scholarship for a global society. NYU Meyers faculty have expanded the scope and number of local, national, and international projects. As a result of the College’s commitment to innovative, evidence-based approaches to healthcare delivery, we rank 8th in funding from the NIH.

To generate this new knowledge and to advance scholarship, the College has several active research centers and grants including:

Post-doctoral associates

NYU Meyers has active post-doctoral associates who work with mentors to develop knowledge, methodologies, and interventions aimed at improving health outcomes. Their areas of interest align with one of the College's areas of emphasis: chronic conditions, geriatrics, health services, or HIV. 

Training support is provided for a two-year period. Support includes an annual stipend (set by NIH based upon years of experience since earned doctorate) and health benefits. Additional funds are available to cover conference attendance, training seminars, and research-related expenses.

The program is open to all individuals who meet the following criteria:

  • Completed dissertation within the last two years or who will have completed it by August 1st.
  • Earned PhD in nursing or if PhD is in a different health-related field, then a master's must be held in nursing.

NYU Meyers has closed the postdoctoral application for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Please check back in January 2022 for the 2022-2023 academic year application.
