RESEARCH TRAINING FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT 2017
2017 RFA Pre-doctoral Training Program (PDF )
The Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham announces the availability of pre-doctoral fellowships funded through the NIH T32 grant (T32HL105349) awarded by the Heart, Lung and Blood Disease Institute (NHLBI). 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 nor permanent resident, but this is a rarity.
Positions entail working collaboratively with an interdisciplinary group of scientists. The NORC studies virtually all aspects of obesity ranging from molecular biology to epidemiology. Investigators include molecular biologists, physicians, psychologists, statisticians, physiologists, epidemiologists, and nutritionists.
