Post-Doctoral Training Programs at NIA IRP

The Postdoctoral IRTA Fellowship Program provides advanced training and research experience to physician and Ph.D. level investigators who are at the beginning stages of their professional research careers. Participants engage in research studies under the direction of a senior NIA investigator who serves as supervisor during the appointment period. A postdoctoral IRTA fellow must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and have five years or less of relevant postdoctoral research experience. Initial IRTA commitments are made for two years with appointments made in one-year increments which may be renewed. NIH Office of Education Online Application

Come join the team whose hallmarks are stable funding, intellectual freedom, shared resources, and access to a wide range of scientific expertise. A fantastic array of scientists already has been hired through the “Stadtman” recruitment in the last seven years. Learn more about the Earl Stadtman Investigator program. Current Stadtman Investigators at NIA IRP include Isabel Beerman and Myong-Hee Sung.
