The University of Pittsburgh is seeking post-doctoral scholars for its NHLBI-funded T32 program, Translational Research Training in Sleep Medicine. The broad aim of this program is to train the future generation of clinical and basic researchers in a translational approach to sleep and circadian science, with a focus on the emerging concept of sleep health; specifically, on the mechanisms whereby sleep influences health, and the evaluation of sleep interventions to improve health. Our training faculty includes 30 research mentors from across the Schools of the Health Sciences, with research interests ranging from clock genes to functional imaging to implementation science.
Applicants must have an MD or PhD
degree in a clinical or non-clinical field of study related to sleep or
circadian rhythms at the time of appointment to the program. This training
opportunity is open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
