Monday, December 05, 2016 CoHSTAR Research Center Accepting Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellowship Applications Physical therapists (PTs) who are interested in playing a transformative role in physical therapy health services research now have a big chance to do just that. The Center on Health Services Training and Research (CoHSTAR) is seeking candidates for fellowships at either a full-time postdoctoral level or a part-time faculty level. Fellowships are available at the 3 institutions participating in CoHSTAR: Brown University, Boston University, and the University of Pittsburgh. For the full-time fellowships, applications are being sought from PTs with a PhD, ScD, or DrPH, or from PTs with a DPT and research training, experience, and publication history. Part-time faculty fellow applicants must be licensed PTs and full-time faculty members with a doctoral degree or equivalent research experience. Faculty fellows must devote the bulk of their time to research activities, and be able to participate in CoHSTAR activities and regularly visit the CoHSTAR site. Application instructions are available at the CoHSTAR webpage. CoHSTAR was created through a $2.5 million grant awarded by the Foundation for Physical Therapy through its "Center of Excellence" initiative. In addition to the fellowships, CoHSTAR sponsors visiting scientists and provides special summer training sessions. The center also funds several pilot studies each year from investigators inside and outside the program. For more information about the CoHSTAR fellowships, email Audrey Kidd.
