Applications are now being accepted for an NICHD T32 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 a start date in the winter or spring of 2020 (but no later than April 30). 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 appointment is expected to be for two years, dependent upon performance. 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. Interested applicants should check the developmental area’s website and view the list of core faculty and their research interests. lsa.umich.edu/psych/program-areas/developmental-psychology.html In addition to core faculty in the Developmental Area, the training grant includes seven additional investigators at the University of Michigan: Jonathan Brennan (Linguistics), Bill Gehring (Psychology), Richard Gonzalez (Psychology), Colter Mitchell (Institute for Social Research), Patricia Reuter-Lorenz (Psychology), Chandra Sripada (Psychiatry and Philosophy), and Delia Vazquez (Pediatrics). In the application, candidates should (a) identify two advisors — one to provide training in social context and the other in neurobiology and (b) propose a project that combines these areas of research. Candidates are urged to discuss these plans with potential advisors. Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in research during their appointment and will receive additional training in the responsible conduct of research, grant writing, manuscript preparation, and professional development. Qualifications: The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in psychology, human development, neuroscience, or related fields, and have a record of research accomplishment in child or life-span development. Applicants must be legally eligible to work in the United States at the time they submit their application. Due to NIH institutional training grant eligibility requirements, the individual must be a US citizen or a non-citizen national of the US or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the US. Salary is in line with NIH pay scale. Offer includes an extensive fringe benefits package, the details of which are found at hr.umich.edu/working-u-m/my-employment/faculty-human-resources-services/benefits-postdoctoral-research-fellows, and travel to one conference per year.
