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. Interested applicants should check the developmental area’s website and view the list of core faculty and their research interests. http://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), Margit Burmeister (Human Genetics), Bill Gehring (Psychology), Richard Gonzalez (Psychology), Colter Mitchell (Institute for Social Research), Patricia Reuter-Lorenz (Psychology), Chandra Sripada (Psychiatry and Philosophy), Sari van Anders (Psychology), 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. 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 full UM health benefits and travel to one conference per year. Submit CV, cover letter, statement of research interests, and evidence of scholarly publications no later than March 1, 2018. All materials should be uploaded as a PDF to https://psychology-lsa.applicantstack.com/x/apply/a2s9hql92cw7 When submitting the material, applicants will be prompted to identify three people who will submit letters of recommendation.
