The Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) anticipates a postdoctoral research fellowship opportunity in the MCW Brain Injury Research Program. The fellow will join our diverse group of basic and clinical scientists in carrying out several large-scale, prospective studies of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The program is led by Michael McCrea, PhD., ABPP-CN (Professor and Director), Lindsay Nelson, PhD (Assistant Professor), and Timothy Meier, PhD (Assistant Professor). Our current research involves local and multisite collection of longitudinal data on a variety of psychological, neurocognitive, and neurobiological measures in athlete samples with mTBI and non-athlete (civilian) samples with TBI, as well as collection of data on non-TBI controls. There will be ample opportunities to collaborate with a variety of basic and applied scientists. This post-doctoral fellow will play a major role in the Brain Injury Research Program’s efforts to study individual differences in recovery and outcomes from TBI, including the psychological and neurobiological factors that predict risk for TBI and recovery from injury, and the intersection of clinical and neurobiological markers of injury and recovery. Our ongoing research in this area is inherently multidisciplinary and is increasingly utilizing specialized statistical methods (e.g., structural equation modeling, item-response theory) and advanced neuroimaging approaches. Consequently, we are seeking up to two post-doctoral research fellows with strong track records of research productivity in a relevant subspecialty of psychology (quantitative, clinical) or neuroscience. While strong interest in TBI research is important, prior research experience in this area of study is not required. Job duties will primarily involve analyzing data, writing manuscripts to submit for peer review, supervising research coordinators and research assistants, and assisting in management of ongoing studies. There will be opportunities to gain exposure to grant writing as appropriate to the fellow’s career goals. The fellow should have a PhD in Clinical Psychology, Quantitative Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field.

This NHLBI-funded T32 training program at Washington University’s School of Medicine is currently accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowship positions. The goals of the training program are to : 1) train talented transdisciplinary postdoctoral trainees to become independent scientists in weight and eating disorders and cardiovascular disease (CVD) capable of working within and leading transdisciplinary research teams ; 2) provide trainees with primary mentoring from highly-qualified, senior weight and eating disorders/CVD researchers and augment the trainees’ experiences with training from senior co-mentors with renowned translational research programs that can extend and inform the traditional scope of obesity/CVD research ; and 3) provide training in the ethical and socially responsible conduct of weight and eating disorders and CVD research across the lifespan including with vulnerable populations (e.g., children, mental health populations).   The Program Director for this training grant is Dr. Denise Wilfley ( wilfleyd@wustl.edu ) and Co-Director is Dr. Samuel Klein ( SKlein@wustl.edu ) of the Washington University School of Medicine. The study, prevention, and treatment of weight and eating disorders requires the transdisciplinary integration of medical, behavioral, genetic, metabolic, and public health research approaches and findings. The study of weight disorders and the relation of its prevention and treatment to CVD risk must therefore be approached from a multi-level, transdisciplinary perspective requiring specialized training in translational research methods. Accordingly, we have 15 primary mentors and 26 co-mentors who have appointments across 15 departments/divisions, which support a thriving community of trainees. Pairing mentees with mentors with backgrounds in the biomedical, cognitive and behavioral, and population health sciences will facilitate trainees’ understanding of multiple facets of weight and eating disorders and enable them to translate this information into impactful, disseminable interventions – the goal of transdisciplinary science.   The Director, Co-Director, and mentors work with trainees to develop a training plan that includes :   1) collaborative mentoring; 2) didactic and professional development training tailored to trainees’ individual needs; and 3) development and completion of translational research projects, grant applications, publications, and presentations based on program expectations.   Requirements : Postdoctoral candidates are required to possess a PhD, MD, or other doctoral degree in a related discipline or be enrolled in an accredited doctoral degree program and fulfill all degree requirements prior to program entry. All applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of application. Students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.   Applications : To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, two-page (single-space) statement describing research interests and experience, and three letters of recommendation to Program Administrator, Heather Wilkins ( wilkinsh@psychiatry.wustl.edu ). Applications will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those interested in starting by July 1, 2018.     For more details, please visit our website at : https://healthyweightandwellness.wustl.edu/education/t32-training-program/  Washington University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
