The Lurie Institute for Disability Policy offers two-year postdoctoral fellowships. Postdoctoral fellows engage in interdisciplinary, intellectually rigorous research on the health, well-being and social inclusion of people with disabilities. Fellows' research topics have included pregnancy outcomes, parenting with a disability, and reproductive health among people with disabilities. 

Our postdoctoral fellows' training includes immediate engagement in an existing research program, coupled with opportunities to hone their skills in preparing grant proposals, managing research projects, developing scholarly articles and presentations, and disseminating findings to advocates and policymakers. Furthermore, fellows will have the opportunity to develop their own independent research programs. Our postdoctoral fellowships are funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). 

Our current postdoctoral fellows are Eun Ha Namkung, Serah Nthenge and Hussain Zandam. To donate to the Lurie Postdoctoral Fellowship Fund, please visit the Heller School's donation page
