Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship Developmental Psychology at the University of Michigan
  • Applications are now being accepted for a 2-year NICHD post-doctoral research fellowship in Developmental Science at the University of Michigan. The Developmental Area within the Department of Psychology will award one post-doctoral fellowship with an ideal start date between August 1 and September 15. The successful applicant must complete all requirements for the PhD before the post-doctoral fellowship can begin; however, it is not necessary that the degree be conferred before the start date. The objective of the fellowship is to train individuals on three pillars of knowledge: (1) developmental science of social context; (2) human neurobiology, which may include brain imaging, genetics, epigenetics, and endocrine function; and (3) advanced research methods (e.g., quantitative statistics appropriate for combining and analyzing longitudinal data from different levels of functioning). This cross-training will produce researchers well-positioned to develop cutting-edge work that advances knowledge about how neurobiological factors interact with environmental contexts to influence development across several domains and contexts. The Developmental Area faculty has a broad range of research interests across the life-span from infancy to late adulthood. See full description for details. (read full)
