NIA Training Program for Research Scientists in the Biology of AgingProgram Director: Steven Austad, PhD, Professor of Cellular and Structural Biology
The Biology of Aging Program embodies the departments of Physiology, Cellular and Structural Biology, Pathology, and Pharmacology of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences as well as the Dental and Medical Schools of the UT Health Science Center. This program provides stipends and training to pre- and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in basic research that holds promise for practical application towards lifespan intervention.

2. As part of the NIH-NIA Biology of Aging Training Grant, a postdoctoral fellowship available in the laboratory of Laboratory of Veronica Galvan, Ph.D. at he Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies to apply neurobehavioral, physiological, in vivo functional and optical imaging as well as cellular and molecular pathways that drive brain aging. The aim of these studies is to determine how these pathways lead to Alzheimer's disease and other age-associated neurological diseases. Another focus of the postdoctoral fellowship is to determine the role of signals that emanate from the nervous system in the control of organismal aging in mammals.
We are looking
for candidates with experience with rodent models as well as with the
standard techniques of molecular and cellular biology.
Experience with neurobehavioral tools and/or with optical imaging are
strengths. A research background in neurobiology, aging or
cerebrovascular biology is preferred. This position is open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
