The UAB Nutrition Obesity Research Center Seeks Postdoctoral Fellows in Obesity-Related Research

The Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham announces the availability of post-doctoral fellowships funded through the NIH T32 grant (T32DK062710-01A1) awarded to Dr. David Allison by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The funds from this grant may be used only for US Citizens or permanent residents. In very rare cases we are able to identify additional funds for the exceptional applicant who is neither a US Citizen or permanent resident, but this is a rarity.

Objective

The purpose of the Training Program is to offer fellowships that prepare post-doctoral scientists for scientific careers as independent investigators in obesity-related research.

Eligibility

  • Individuals with a doctoral degree from any scientific field are eligible. Applicants must be either a U. S. Citizen or Permanent Resident.
  • UAB is committed to providing educational, employment, and enrichment opportunities for members of underrepresented groups. Women, individuals from traditionally disadvantaged groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Support provided for trainees

  • Stipends (typically for a two-three year period)
  • Tuition and fees for all required courses
  • Health insurance
  • Books & supplies for educational purposes
