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.
