Georgetown University in Washington, DC is conducting a national search for talented investigators to join our new interdisciplinary research initiative and graduate program in Aging, Society, & Health. These recruitments broadly focus on research on the care of older adults, their unique needs, and social structures to support healthy aging in America. We anticipate these recruitments will be appointed across multiple departments. There are exciting opportunities for leadership in this endeavor, including the development of geriatric clinical services in collaboration with MedStar Health.
Senior, mid-career, and early stage investigators are sought, as well as physician-scientist candidates with expertise in aging-relevant disciplines. Positions may include:
Clinically-focused opportunities to develop care models; conduct clinical research.
Neuroscience and basic science aging opportunities to identify clinical-translational pathways relevant to aging and disease, including Alzheimer’s and cancer.
Behavioral science and health services opportunities to conduct observational, interventional, and health utilization research in healthy and affected aged populations.
Opportunities also exist for post-doctoral training to work with established scientists.
Current aging research includes a robust portfolio of NIH-funded projects spanning the above areas. Highlights include cognitive and behavioral outcomes of cancer survivorship and Alzheimer’s disease; investigations into common genetic risks for cancer-related and Alzheimer’s-related decline; utilization and patterns of care; development of biomarkers of aging and their evaluation and translation into practice; and interventions to optimize health outcomes. The University offers extensive data and infrastructure resources to accelerate discovery in these areas.
These are tenure-track opportunities, with academic rank, salary, and recruitment packages based on qualifications and experience.
The Washington, DC metro area and University environment provide excellent opportunities for unique professional collaborations and fulfilling lifestyle.
Earliest start date is July 2017; applications accepted until the positions are filled.
