Position Description: The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UCSF is accepting applications for one or more postdoctoral fellowships in Aging and Chronic Disease.

It focuses on chronic diseases and aging, including Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, cancer, musculoskeletal and cardiometabolic disorders. Four unique strengths of the program are: • Integration of population and implementation science research • Didactic and experiential training using implementation science to prevent and delay incidence and progression of major aging-related chronic conditions • Emphasis on rigorous methods for longitudinal research in complex data sets • Use of multi-level data linkages, including genomics, clinical information drawn from electronic medical records, and environmental or social profiles. The program emphasizes development of trainees as independent researchers in a new era of translational science, big data, and aging and chronic disease epidemiology. Scientists eligible for this program must demonstrate a strong interest in aging and chronic disease.
