A Brief Overview
Will, under the direction/guidance of a mentor (principal investigator), assume responsibility for a specific, on-going research project. The postdoc experience will serve to extend, refine and enhance skills necessary for professional and career development, and will enable the individual to broaden his/her scientific background by acquiring new research capabilities. It is expected that this individual will conduct independent scholarly research, and will contribute directly to the overall research goals of the project and the research group. Postdocs will be expected to participate in project planning, recording and interpretation/evaluation of data, and communication of results. Postdocs will also be expected to acquire technical, lab management, and manuscript/grant writing skills; and participate in seminars, lectures, poster sessions and presentations at national meetings. Postdoctoral fellows also may be required to supervise junior lab members, develop new methods and protocols for research, and assist with the development of other research projects in the lab.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Research Fellowship is accepting applications for the July 1, 2023- June 30, 2025 fellowship period. This 24-month fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) will focus on defining translational physiology at birth and associated clinical outcomes for newborns with congenital anomalies. Applicants may include clinical investigators with training in pediatrics or neonatology or early-stage postdoctoral fellows interested in reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiology.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Research Fellowship offers applicants a unique opportunity to conduct research in the world-first dedicated birthplace for babies with congenital anomalies, the Garbose Family Special Delivery Unit (SDU). Over 500 babies are born in the SDU yearly, making CHOP the largest global delivery centers for newborns with conditions including congenital heart disease, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, pulmonary hypoplasia, abdominal wall defects, and neural tube defects.
The Neonatal Resuscitation Research Fellowship is embedded within the Delivery Room of the Future Frontier Program at CHOP.  Principal Investigator Elizabeth Foglia, MD, MSCE leads an NIH-funded multidisciplinary research team focused on developing an evidence base for neonatal resuscitation for high-risk infants. The research fellow will have full access to all Delivery Room of the Future resources, including a longitudinal multimodal registry of physiologic, clinical, and follow up data (including neurodevelopment) for newborns born at CHOP.  Fellows will receive support from existing Delivery Room of the Future research infrastructure, including project management, research coordinators, computational and IS resources, and a data science and statistical team.
This fellowship will foster professional development of skills and experience necessary for translational and clinical research.  The research fellow will assume primary responsibility of all aspects of dedicated projects, including project planning and execution, data management, interpretation/evaluation of data, and communication of results through oral presentation and manuscript preparation. In addition, the research fellow will obtain content expertise in transitional and resuscitation physiology as well as short- and long-term clinical outcomes for newborns with congenital anomalies.
