SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 21, 2020
he Stark Neurosciences Research Institute and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) are seeking applicants for special post-doctoral training fellowships in translational neurodegenerative disease research. We seek applicants whose research is focused on age-related neurodegeneration, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, among others. Translational research refers to what is popularly termed as "bench to bedside"; the process by which research in the lab translates into patient treatment. Translational research fosters the multidirectional integration of basic research, patient-oriented research, and population-based research, with the long-term aim of improving the health of the public. Translation can involve everything from basic science discoveries in the lab that directly focus on human disease states, through animal studies and drug development to the development of clinical trials and studies in humans.
Annual stipend (plus applicable health insurance) is aligned with current NIH recommendations. Annual supplement of $7,500 to be used for travel, computers, and general supplies. Initial funding duration is for one (1) year, and is renewable for one (1) additional year pending review and demonstration of satisfactory progress and funding availability.
