Cognitive Neurology Postdoctoral Research Positions

NYU Langone’s Center for Cognitive Neurology is pleased to offer National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32–funded postdoctoral positions in neurodegenerative research for the 2018–19 academic year. The goal of this program is to train scientists and clinician–scientists to be future leaders in the field of neurodegenerative research and the aging brain.

Trainees are paired with mentors or mentoring teams made up of clinician–scientists as well as basic and translational scientists from a variety of disciplines throughout NYU Langone, NYU, and the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research. Mentors coach trainees in topics such as presentation skills, developing publications, and writing grant proposals. Trainees also work with their mentors on the fundamentals of neurodegenerative disease, rigorous research methodology, clinical approaches, and statistical analysis.

The program is designed to support three postdoctoral fellows annually. The fellowship lasts for two years. Prospective trainees should have the desire and potential to become independent researchers in the field of brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases. MD and MD/PhD applicants must have completed an accredited residency or clinical fellowship program. PhD applicants must complete doctoral training before beginning the program.
