  • Iowa Neuroimaging Consortium Banner
  • Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neurobiology and Major Psychoses

    This is a two to three-year training program in integrative translational clinical neuroscience, with an emphasis on the study of the major psychoses. The program includes a combination of training techniques, including didactic coursework and mentorship from one or more training faculty members.

    The program stresses the acquisition and application of research skills in neuroscience technologies (neuroimaging, genetics, molecular biology, cognitive/affective neuroscience) to examine the mechanisms, lifetime trajectory, and treatment approaches to major mental illnesses. Another main emphasis is the acquisition of skills across all stages of research, beginning with study design and continuing through data acquisition, data analysis, and write-up of results. Trainees design and complete one or more research projects under the direction of their mentors and publish the results. They also receive training in grant writing and submission, with the goal of becoming early career independent investigators on completion of the program. Applicants must have completed a doctoral-level degree.

    The program is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). For more information, please visit the Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neurobiology and Major Psychoses website.
