University of Pittsburgh
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.
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.
The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and values equality of opportunity, human dignity and diversity.
The Department of Neurobiology plays a leading role within the Pittsburgh neuroscience community. The Department faculty research programs span nearly all areas of modern neuroscience, including neural development, circuit function, cellular and synaptic communication, neuronal dysfunction, as well as systems, integrative, and computational neuroscience. The department actively integrates research and training efforts with campus and citywide neuroscience programs in Pittsburgh, including the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute (UPBI), the Center for Neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh (CNUP), the Center for Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC), the Translational Neuroscience Program (TNP), the Pittsburgh Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (PIND), the Pittsburgh Center for Pain Research (PCPR), the Systems Neuroscience Institute (SNI), and the Auditory Research Group (ARG).
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.
