Postdoctoral Fellowship in Developmental Neuroscience and Child Psychopathology

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-funded T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship in Development Neuroscience and Child Psychopathology is available to psychologists, neuroscientists, and both child and adult psychiatrists who are interested in conducting translational research on developmental neuroscience and child psychopathology, with a particular emphasis on early childhood. The child psychopathology domains include, but are not limited to, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, pervasive developmental disorders, ADHD, addiction, and psychosis. The fellowship can admit up two new trainees each year.

The training model for this fellowship focuses on interdisciplinary training, with trainees gaining expertise in both basic and clinical domains, including developmental psychopathology, developmental affective and cognitive neuroscience, genetics and developmental neuroimaging. Fellows will be mentored by Washington University faculty with international reputations in developmental psychology, clinical neuroscience, functional neuroimaging, psychiatric genetics, and cognitive and affective neuroscience. Fellows will be involved in didactic training in core areas, professional development training, and most critically, both ongoing and newly developed translational research projects.
