Positions available on NIDDK sponsored T32 postdoctoral training grant in Neuroendocrinology and Metabolism

Qualified post-doctoral trainees are eligible to apply for a two-year fellowship (with possibility of a 3rd year if progress warrants) for advanced training in the broad area of neuroendocrinology and metabolism.  Focal areas of research include diabetes, obesity, circadian biology, feeding behavior, reproductive biology and related areas.

Applicants must be either a permanent resident or citizen of the US and have completed their MD, PhD, DO, or DVM degree. It is expected that most trainees will qualify for two years of support at NIH postdoctoral stipend scale.  Items needed to evaluate a fellowship applicant are trainee NIH Biosketch, copy of the mentor's NIH other support page, and a one or two page outline of the planned research project. We ask that the trainee do this in an NIH format with a short section on aims, significance, innovation, and approach, with several sentences indicating his/her longer-term career plans.

Trainees would conduct their research in the laboratory of a training grant mentor. Current mentors are listed below in the URLor QR code provided. For questions about the training grant program or the application process please click on link and go down to the T32 Training Program section:
