We are seeking outstanding candidates for NIH T32 supported post-doctoral fellowships in musculoskeletal biology with a focus on joint health.
This multi-disciplinary post-doctoral training program in musculoskeletal biology emphasizes research training in joint health, encompassing three major programmatic areas: osteoarthritis, total joint replacement and small molecule therapeutics. Training will take place in the laboratories of NIH funded faculty in two basic science departments (Cell & Molecular Medicine and Physiology & Biophysics) and three clinical departments (Internal Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery and Pediatrics). The preceptors are internationally respected scientists and physician-scientists devoted to musculoskeletal research, with a special focus on osteoarthritis (including pain), cartilage and bone biology, total joint replacement, and muscle physiology. We encourage candidates with a medical degree to apply in addition to those with PhD’s. After completing our program, the trainees will be better able to become independent, team-oriented, principal investigators. The program also supports 3-month “short-term” slots for medical students. Trainees have many resources available including the Joint Seminar Series, which features internationally renowned scholars.
