Spring 2016+ UW Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Biology of Aging

UPDATED application deadline:   April 1, 2016

The NIH T32 Genetic Approaches to Aging Training Grant has one post-doctoral opening this Spring.

The goal of our program is to train new independent investigators who will utilize molecular and genetic techniques to investigate the biology of aging. The objective this research is to elucidate the basic mechanisms underlying the process of aging and age-related changes in humans and in animal models of human aging. This includes investigations of the mechanisms responsible for  the gradual or programmed alterations of structure and function that characterize normal aging, as well as how these adverse changes become risk factors for, or accompany, age-related conditions and disease states.

Enthusiastic, independent postdoctoral researchers will have the opportunity choose from among our 36 faculty of researchers using a broad range of approaches and diverse model systems to study the basic biology of aging.

While applications are considered on a rolling basis, the application cut off date for this Spring is March 7, 2016. The expected start date would be May 1, 2016 and we generally encourage applicants to make their submissions as soon as possible.

Positions open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents only. Other eligibility requirements must be met, please see the application procedures for a full list of eligibility requirements.
