Postdoctoral Fellowships in the Biology of Aging at the University of Washington

Category: Opportunities | August 04, 2016

The University of Washington’s NIH T32 Training Grant in the Biology of Aging will have five post-doctoral openings Spring 2017.

The goal of our program is to train new independent investigators who will utilize molecular and genetic techniques to investigate the biology of aging, elucidating the basic mechanisms underlying the process of aging and age-related changes in humans and in animal models of human aging. 

Enthusiastic, independent postdoctoral researchers will have the opportunity choose from among the spectrum of strong faculty at the University of Washington who use a broad range of approaches and diverse model systems to study the biology of aging. See their website for further details.

The UW is a recognized leader in aging research with an extremely rich environment for science. The School of Medicine is home to one of six NIH funded Nathan Shock Centers of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging, as well as NIH Centers of Excellence for research on Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease as well as the Healthy Aging and Longevity Research Institute (HALo). 

In the past five years, approximately 70 UW Faculty have been awarded individual investigator grants from the National Institute on Aging. These resources have created a strong environment for study of the basic mechanisms of aging. Seattle is a world-class city located in the Pacific Northwest with exceptional livability, cultural and recreational opportunities.

Applicants should begin by contacting the faculty member(s) with whom they are interested in working. An invitation to join a lab (which maybe contingent on acceptance into the Genetic Approaches to Aging Training Grant) is required prior to submitting a post-doc application to the Training Grant. A letter of recommendation from your proposed research advisor and a description of the proposed work is part of the program application. NIH regulations require applicants to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
