Funded by the NIH/NIA, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Division of Geriatrics, Biology of Aging and Age Related Diseases T32 training grant focuses on the basic mechanisms of aging, preventative interventions, and clinical problems encountered by older adults. At the University of Wisconsin (UW) – Madison, this grant provides career development for exceptional postdoctoral scholars through mentored training with our 35 mentors, the Biology of Aging Seminar series, and conferences.
The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University invites applicants for research fellowships in plant science. Putnam Fellowships offer excellent opportunities for advanced research and study using the Arboretum’s living collections of woody plants. Scientists with a PhD and who have identified an independent research project that would utilize the Arboretum’s living collections are encouraged to apply.
The American Museum of Natural History seeks highly qualified applicants for two postdoctoral positions for its Gerstner Postdoctoral Scholars program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The 2019-20 application cycle includes a special opportunity for applicants who want to pursue comparative biology research relevant to human health or biomedicine.
The main projects focus on the dynamics of dwarf galaxies and the Milky Way and Andromeda satellite systems, and the multiple stellar populations in globular clusters, respectively. Involvement in projects related to the Galactic Center and stellar streams is also possible. The research involves either observational data analysis, theoretical dynamical modeling, and/or data-model comparisons.
