The Female Athlete Science and Translational Research (FASTR) Program led by Dr. Emily Kraus is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in female athlete health and performance. Individuals with backgrounds in kinesiology, exercise physiology, exercise science, endocrinology, and engineering are all welcome to apply.
Our team is committed to improving the long term health and performance outcomes of female athletes through research on bone health, running biomechanics, relative energy deficiency in sport (REDs), and running medicine. For example, we are currently studying the effects of training volume and intensity on serum biomarkers in female ultrarunners training for the Western States 100 mile race as well as assessing the prevalence of risk factors for REDs in this population. Our research is supported by the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance.
We are looking for a passionate and driven individual to join our team and spearhead projects to advance our understanding of relative energy deficiency in sport (REDs), bone health, and the menstrual cycle. Funding is available to support a fellow for up to two years. The fellow will work with an interdisciplinary group of scientists and clinicians, have the opportunity to share their work at international scientific conferences, and mentor undergraduate students.

Required Qualifications: 
  • A PhD in kinesiology, exercise physiology, endocrinology, or related fields.
  • Strong research skills
