The University of Pittsburgh seeks to fill at least four 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 and Chris Donnelly, PhD but represents a community-wide training program that includes faculty from basic science and clinical
departments throughout the University.

Prior to application, applicants must select and obtain acceptance from a research mentor chosen from the list of members of the Center for Neuroscience at the
University of Pittsburgh (CNUP) ( )
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. A list of current and former T32 trainees can be found at:

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. The application deadline is October 15, 2024.
