The Division of Aging Biology (DAB) is recruiting for five positions. DAB is one of four scientific Divisions in the National Institute on Aging (NIA), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services. HHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers. Salary for each position is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

The DAB supports research in basic, applied, and translational research through grants and a robust program to provide biological resources for extramural investigators. The objective of DAB-funded research is to elucidate the basic biochemical, genetic, and physiological mechanisms underlying the process of aging and age-related changes in humans and in animal models of human aging. This includes investigations of alterations of structure and function that characterize aging and investigations of how these adverse changes become risk factors for, or accompany, age-related conditions and disease states. The Division provides resources needed to support aging research comprising aged rodent and NHP colonies, rodent and NHP cell and tissue banks as well as the Primate Aging database.

Information on the Division can be found at https://www.nia.nih.gov/research/dab .

A formal application through the next NIH global announcement will be necessary (to be posted in USAJobs in May). For additional information about these positions, please contact Ms. Karleigh Price (Karleigh.Price@nih.gov) with a resume and letter of interest and details about the application process for a position at NIA/NIH.
