Funding Opportunities

Minnesota Neuroimaging Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Neuroimaging using optical and magnetic resonance techniques has enabled anatomical, connectional, and functional imaging of the brain that has revolutionized medical research. The University of Minnesota’s College of Science & Engineering and the Medical School received a NIH training grant to support postdoctoral trainees across the United States who are interested in becoming leaders in neuroimaging research. We have established a new fellowship program called, Minnesota Neuroimaging Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

Each fellow will receive a stipend starting at $56,484 and support for travel, tuition, and health costs for a total of up to $70,000 per year in financial support for a two-year fellowship experience working in a neuroimaging laboratory at the University of Minnesota. The recipients primary research will be conducted on a multi-disciplinary project that combines their background with another field with the express goal of developing new neuroimaging technologies. Once recipients are selected, they will be matched with two neuroimaging mentors of over forty faculty affiliated with the NIH training grant.

The mission of this T32 program is to train a diverse group of post-doctoral fellows, provide them with world-class opportunities to develop and translate neuromodulation technologies, and launch their careers as the next generation of thought leaders in the field of translational neuromodulation research.

The training program pairs post-doctoral fellows with faculty co-mentors from (1) fundamental neuroscience or neuroengineering fields and (2) clinical disciplines. Fellows conduct translational research with program faculty who are pioneers in the clinical translation of (a) deep brain stimulation therapies for neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders, (b) spinal cord stimulation for post-injury restoration of volitional movement and autonomic function, (c) peripheral nerve stimulation for treatment of cardiometabolic and inflammatory disorders, and (d) techniques for manipulating the spread of brain cancer.

This program taps into outstanding translational neuromodulation research programs and facilities at the University of Minnesota and integrates our fellows into the unique medical device ecosystem of Minnesota, which is home to many global medtech companies that are developing neuromodulation technologies.

Research Study

The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) enhances the way research is conducted to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. CTSI provides a comprehensive infrastructure of research services, training, grants, tools, and more. In addition, CTSI's Recruitment Center has created StudyFinder, a public-facing website that features actively enrolling UMN research studies and directly connects potential participants with study teams.

NeuroTech Course & Workshop



The short-course on translating and commercializing neurotechnology, supported by the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research and the Bakken Medical Devices Center. This is a comprehensive educational program designed to teach the fundamentals of bringing neurotechnology from preclinical to clinical to commercialization, and into the marketplace. The Course Curriculum has been created by an incredible line-up of world expert program faculty, who bring deep knowledge and experience and is a FREE, self-paced online course. Complete the lectures and questions and receive a Certificate in Neurotechnology Translation!

The annual NeuroTech workshop is scheduled for Summer 2024. 

This hands-on workshop enables participants to work with expert program faculty and conduct case-study exercises on key aspects of translating and commercializing neurotechnology.
