Biobehavioral Nursing & Health Systems


Positions Available

Pre- and Post-doctoral positions are available in the NIH/NINR funded Aging and Informatics Training program (AITP) at the University of Washington School of Nursing. The focus of this training grant is to increase the number of scientists skilled in methods, and skills necessary to conduct gerontological research including the design, implementation, and evaluation of informatics interventions or systems.

Opportunities exist to work with and be mentored by a wide variety of nursing scientists and interdisciplinary groups actively integrating aging and informatics research experience and to obtain structured feedback and critique. Both predoctoral and post-doctoral positions are are available on a rolling basis. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency status is required.

The main purpose of the AITP is to prepare individuals for research careers in universities, health care agencies, government agencies or industry. Individuals will ordinarily be supported for a minimum of two years of training. During this time they will develop skills to create further independent funding to support them for the remainder of their program (in the case of predoctoral trainees) or their career (in the case of postdoctoral trainees). All trainees will share common outcomes, although the level, breadth, and depth of achievement will be based on their prior training and experience.
