The University of Pittsburgh seeks to fill a number of NIH NINDS T32-funded postdoctoral positions for training in the Neurobiology of Neurological Disease. A primary goal of this training program is to provide a crucial clinical component to the education of postdoctoral fellows. A second major goal is to ensure that trainees are provided with mentored research training to create a pathway to independence.
This T32 program is administered by the Department of Neurobiology and directed by Dr. Peter Strick, PhD, but represents a community-wide training program that includes faculty from basic science and clinical departments throughout the University. Our rich neuroscience environment includes 44 primary training scientists and 12 junior faculty specific to this T32.
Prior to application, applicants must select and obtain acceptance from a research mentor chosen from the list of the T32 training faculty (http://www.neurobio.pitt.edu/t32/faculty.htm) or from members of the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) (http://www.cnup.neurobio.pitt.edu/people/faculty.aspx?by=x1) who are engaged in NINDS-funded research.
Successful applicants must have a PhD in Neuroscience, Biology, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Bioengineering, or a related field.
In order to be eligible for NIH NINDS T32 funding, applicants must be either US Citizens or Permanent Residents.
While preference will be given to junior postdoctoral applicants, more experienced postdoctoral researchers will also be considered, especially if they are: a) working on highly innovative projects; b) working on projects that require extended time and effort for completion; or c) training in new fields or specialties.
