The NIH-NHLBI funded T32 program ‘Training in Translational Lung Biology and Pathobiology’ program at Yale’s Section of Pulmonary, Critical and Sleep Medicine (Yale-PCCSM) is offering postdoctoral research fellow position for motivated individuals with a strong background in basic and translational research, an interest in training and developing an academic career in profound and impactful human lung disease relevant research.

The candidate will be part of a diverse community of research fellows, and will benefit from the extensive mentoring, specific training and career development offered by the program, as well as its 30-year track-record of developing successful careers. As part of program, postdoctoral research fellows are matched with mentors and labs in research areas of their interested and are expected to develop research projects aligned with the mission of the T32 program, their mentors’ research interests, and their career goals. Progress is assessed based on knowledge, creativity, productivity, and integrity.

The Yale T32 program was started in 1994 and has grown dramatically with currently 9 slots for postdoctoral trainees. We have successfully recruited a mix of trainees with M.D., M.D./Ph.D., and Ph.D. backgrounds, with diverse interests ranging from profound bench research, through translational investigations to clinical outcomes and trials. Our mentors come from Yale-PCCSM, as well as other Yale departments and investigations have occurred in disease areas as various as Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Respiratory Infections, COPD, Critical Care, Acute Lung Injury, Sleep Apnea, and Circadian Biology, but with a common theme of lung pathobiology and human disease. The increased diversity of our trainees has not been limited to only research interests, but also the inclusion of women (50% of the recent trainees that completed their training were women) and URiM (21% were members of underrepresented minorities). Majority of our alumni have successful academic careers, and graduates of the program in the last decades have published >300 research papers.
