Job Description

The Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism at the University of Pittsburgh is based at one of the largest academic medical centers in the country, and has a long-standing commitment to research training.

Currently we are seeking MD, MD/PhD, or PhD scientists with interests in the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases, including, but not limited to diabetes, obesity, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, cardiovascular disease, immunometabolism, and cancer metabolism, for National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded postdoctoral T32 training fellowships. Physician-scientists and candidates with cross/multidisciplinary research programs are particularly desirable, and the successful candidates will conduct cutting-edge NIH-funded basic, translational, clinical, epidemiological, or health outcomes research. Applicants must be permanent residents or U.S. citizens at the time the fellowship begins. The standard postdoctoral fellowship duration is two years.

Strengths of the program include:
• outstanding research opportunities that range from the molecular to the public health arenas;
• an exceptional NIH-funded training faculty;
• access to a range of didactic courses, workshops, and educational experiences that complement research opportunities;
• structured career development courses that impart skills ranging from managing group projects to presentation skills through the T32-to-K-to-R grant transition; and
• a continuous assessment program for trainees reinforced by an individual career development plan, a mentoring team, and progress evaluations that focus on the individualized professional development of trainees.

Interested candidates should send:
• a cover letter,
• a current curriculum vitae,
• a statement of research interests (one to two pages maximum),
• a copy of medical school or graduate school transcript, and
• three letters of reference.

Please e-mail a single assembled application in PDF format to Sharon Ferderbar, T32 Administrator, Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism, at [email protected].
