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:
- Behavioral Sciences Training in Drug Abuse Research
- Biological Laboratory
- Center for Precision Health in Diverse Populations P20
- Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing
- Muriel and Virginia Pless Center for Nursing Research
- Occupational and Environmental Health T42
- Oral Health Initiative (OHNEP)
- Special Studies in Symptom Management
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.
The application deadline for post-doctoral associate positions at NYU Meyers has passed. Please check back in 2021.
