The Intramural Research Program at NINDS offers fellowships in clinical and basic neuroscience research to train the next generation of leaders in academic neurology. Emphasis is on disease pathophysiology, drug discovery, early phase clinical trials, surrogate markers and translational research as well as clinical training in a neurological subspecialty. Some fellowships are interdisciplinary, but the primary focus is in one of the areas listed below.

 

Candidates may contact the Clinical Director, Dr. Avi Nath (nindsclinicaldirector2@mail.nih.gov) or formally apply through the Graduate Medical Education website at https://www.cc.nih.gov/training/gme/programs1.html.

DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.  All positions are subject to a background check.

BASIC-CLINICAL TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH

Fellows choose from a wide variety of labs conducting fundamental neuroscience research and spend one day a week in clinical activities.

 

NEUROIMMUNOLOGY and NEUROVIROLOGY

Training in clinical and bench research, including neuroimaging, with a focus on multiple sclerosis and CNS infections (HTLV-I, neuro-AIDS, PML, autoimmune disorders, Herpes, arboviruses, Gene Therapy, LCMV).

 

NEUROGENETICS

Training in the bench to bedside approach to study basic disease mechanisms using different model systems and develop gene and mechanism directed therapeutic approaches.

 

SURGICAL NEUROLOGY  

Academic neurosurgery training in conditions requiring surgical intervention such as Chiari malformation, DBS, drug delivery, epilepsy, gene therapy, neuroimaging, Neurofibromatosis type 2, syringomyelia and von-Hippel-Lindau disease.

 

EPILEPSY

We offer a two-year fellowship in medical and surgical epilepsy treatment and clinical research, including imaging, pharmacology and cognitive processes. One year will be an ACGME clinical neurophysiology fellowship focused on EEG.

 

NEUROREHABILITATION AND BEHAVIORAL NEUROLOGY

Studies motor learning in the context of neurorehabilitation of stroke and dementia, neural replay and activity, use of closed-loop transcranial cortical stimulation, and episodic memory.

 

NEUROIMAGING

Clinical and translational applications of neuroimaging techniques to study brain function and metabolism using technology such as 11.7 T to 64 m T human MRI scanner as well as a range of preclinical systems to accommodate rodents, nonhuman primates and tissue samples. TMS, fMRI, MR spectrometry, DTI, PET scanning and M/EEG techniques allow for cutting edge research.

 

VASCULAR NEUROLOGY

ACGME accredited fellowship. Research includes acute stroke management, MRI-guided diagnosis and management of acute stroke, adjunctive therapies, blood-brain barrier disruption, and evaluation, pathogenesis, and treatment of patients with or at risk for cerebrovascular disease

 

MOVEMENT DISORDERS

Training in clinical movement disorders including parkinson’s disease and DBS with a focus on the physiology and pathophysiology of movement.  

 

MOTOR NEURON DISEASE AND RELATED DISORDERS

Focuses on translational research on the physiology, quantitative imaging, and genetics of motor neuron disease and related disorders. 

 

MUSCLE AND NERVE DISORDERS

Training in inflammatory and genetic muscle and nerve diseases.

 

TRANSLATIONAL PAIN MEDICINE

NCCIH organized fellowship with goal to provide training and broad experience and skills in human pain research, designed to develop improved diagnostic skills and targeted interventions.

 

CLINICAL NEUROPHYSIOLOGY

An ACGME approved fellowship year in clinical neurophysiology with a focus on either EMG or EEG. The EEG year is offered as part of a two year fellowship with additional training in clinical epilepsy.

 

CLINICAL TRIALS METHODOLOGY AND REGULATORY SCIENCE

Training in translational science of clinical trials, from first-in-human to large multi-center trials, in collaboration with the FDA. Focus on concept evaluation, protocol development, statistical design, trial implementation, safety monitoring, ethical considerations and regulatory sciences.
