Postdoctoral Training

The Department of Mental Health offers opportunities for postdoctoral training, including three training programs funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and one funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), which complement the research-based training of doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. The department also participates in an interdisciplinary program, funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA). In addition, individual faculty may be able to support postdoctoral fellows through a research grant.

Prospective postdoctoral scholars with their own funding should contact individual faculty directly to inquire about self-funded opportunities. If you are interested in becoming a postdoctoral fellow, you should first contact a faculty member who works in your area of interest. 

Keep in mind that all postdoctoral fellows carry out their programs in cooperation with a member of the faculty.
