The Department of Neurology in collaboration with the UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Center is pleased to announce a call for post-doctoral applicants for an “aging and dementia in diverse populations” fellowship.The aim of this fellowship is to develop a program of neuroscience research focused on the use of neuroimaging, cognitive testing and serum biomarkers that aims to understand the biological under pinning of the aging brain as it relates to the pattern of normal cognition across the spectrum of human brain aging in ethnically and racially diverse communities. The fellowship is expected to develop expertise for successful research careers in cognitive aging.
Individuals who have successfully completed a PhD or MD/PhD program are eligible to apply. Fellows will be selected based on academic qualifications, career goals, and expertise. The fellowship is designed as a three year intensive research program. Successful applicants are required to make at least a two year commitment which includes the proposed research and training necessary for transition into independent research career advancement.

About UC Davis Health
The Department of Neurology at the University of California, Davis conducts basic and clinical research on the nervous system and provides clinical care for people with neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, tremor, dystonia, multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular conditions, headache, and sleep disorders.
The department’s faculty includes leading neuroscientists, who work to expand our knowledge of nervous system function, as well as neurologists and psychologists who provide diagnosis and treatment for adults and children. The department offers cutting-edge diagnostic approaches, including advanced neuroimaging technologies, and access to trials of new medications and other therapeutic modalities. The department has an active residency program that enrolls 15 residents. The department also sponsors several post-doctoral fellowships in clinical neurophysiology, clinical neuropsychology, epilepsy, movement disorders, and neurodegeneration and aging.
