  • Biomechanics Grant Coordinator at University of DC

    The University of the District of Columbia is seeking a grant coordinator to work on our federally- funded grant project. Our funded project focuses on conducting exciting research, education, and outreach activities. This position provides opportunities to work on high impact research and education with faculty leaders while creating a strong and long-term societal impact. The grant coordinator position is for one year but can be renewed for multiple years subject to availability of funds and performance.

    The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institutes on Aging (NIA) MSTEM grant, under the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) at the University of the District of Columbia is seeking a full-time grant coordinator. The NIH NIA MSTEM grant focuses on the creation and implementation of an array of invaluable aging-focused student and faculty activities tied to research, curricular enhancements, and experiential learning at UDC.

    The grant coordinator will have the opportunity to work with the principal investigator, students and personnel of the NIH NIA MSTEM project, as well as representatives from various institutes, agencies and and Universities.
