Postdoctoral research fellowships are available in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. Two - three-year fellowships funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) are available for applicants from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, pediatrics, neurology, genetics, neuroscience, developmental biology, computer science and related fields who seek to improve or expand their ability to conduct interdisciplinary-translational research. Physician-scientists accepted into the program can potentially combine the research training program with their clinical training over a 3 to 4 year period.
Trainees accepted into the postdoctoral training program will work collaboratively with a program mentor (or mentors), who will help to define, enhance and monitor the trainee’s research program and career trajectory. The training program also offers various didactic courses and activities (e.g., workshops on research methods and grant writing, journal club and career lunches) to promote professional development.
This program has an outstanding success rate for training postdoctoral fellows who go on to become highly productive independent researchers. Creative, energetic and dedicated candidates are particularly encouraged to apply, as are candidates from backgrounds typically underrepresented in higher education.
The application deadline is ongoing. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with an MD and/or PhD (must be completed at the time training begins). Commitment to the goals of the program and strong academic and research credentials are important criteria used in the selection process. For additional information on the T32 training program and application procedures, please contact the Program Administrator, Ms. Reiko Riley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit our website at:
