2020 Cycle Is Now Open
Three postdoctoral positions are available on an NIA funded Institutional Research Training Grant titled, “Harvard Translational Research in Aging Training Program”. While funding is for two years, this grant is up for renewal beginning May 2021. There is a two year training commitment, but the second year is dependent on continued funding by NIH. Funding should begin sometime between May 1 and September 1, 2020.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to participate in the Harvard Translational Research in Aging Training Program, AARTSS.
Advanced Aging Research Training Seminar Series (AARTSS)
The main objective of AARTSS is to provide practical instruction to trainees conducting aging-related research at the Division of Gerontology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the Harvard Multi-campus Geriatric Medicine fellowship program, the Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research at Hebrew SeniorLife (HSL), and throughout the Harvard Medical School community. Both faculty and participants represent a diversity of research areas that include biological, physiological, patient-oriented, and epidemiologic research. Thus, another goal of AARTSS is to provide a venue for cross-fertilization of ideas among investigators conducting aging-related research in various disciplines.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.
