Overall Description of Nature of Work:

The position is within the T32 Training Program of the Division of Renal Diseases and Hypertension at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The Nephrology training program, which has been funded for 48 consecutive years, seeks to continue to provide scientifically rigorous, multidisciplinary research training in academic nephrology to postdoctoral fellows who have previously earned M.D., and/or Ph.D. degrees. Individuals accepted into the training program dedicate two or more years to research activities in bench science, clinical nephrology research studies, and/or translational investigation. The program is enriched with regularly scheduled lectures and seminars as well as local, regional, and national courses. Participants have the option in enrolling in formal postgraduate course work at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The most important component of the proposed program is the intensive research training for several years under the mentorship of experienced and committed investigators who have extensive track records of securing independent funding from the National Institute of Health. Emphasis is placed on integration of basic and applied nephrology. Basic research opportunities in physiology and clinically relevant areas include (but are not limited to) physiology and pharmacology of vasoactive hormones, human and mouse genetics, acute kidney injury, and immunological mechanisms in kidney diseases. Clinical research opportunities include epidemiological and patient-oriented investigations in chronic kidney disease, hypertension, mineral metabolism, the cardiorenal syndromes, dialysis, and genetics as well as novel urinary biomarkers in acute and chronic kidney disease, and randomized clinical trials. Our 25 research mentors are outstanding faculty at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, representing many disciplines and departments. We look forward to continuing our tradition of excellence in training leaders in nephrology while continuing to critically assess and improve the fellowship experience by providing outstanding research and mentoring opportunities to the next generation of nephrology investigators.
