Fellowship Title:

Interdisciplinary Training in Psychiatry and Neuroscience

Fellowship Description:

The training program is jointly sponsored by the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The faculty members all have appointments in either of these two departments and have an established record of collaborative interaction. The research interests of the core faculty represent the major sub-disciplines of the neurosciences and biological psychiatry, including molecular and cellular neurobiology, developmental neurobiology, systems neurobiology, behavioral biology, neuroimaging, psychiatric genetics and neuropsychiatry. The primary vehicle for training is supervised research in a laboratory of one of the core faculty members combined with an organized didactic program in relevant aspects of neuroscience and psychiatric research methodology. The training program provides a unique opportunity for M.D.s and Ph.D.s to obtain training at the postdoctoral level in basic neuroscience research oriented toward clinical psychiatry.

Fellowship Title:

Fellowship in Schizophrenia Research

Fellowship Description:

This fellowship, sponsored by the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, focuses on basic, translational, and clinical research training related to schizophrenia. The research interests of the faculty mentors include neuroimaging (PET, fMRI, MRI), psychiatric genetics, animals models of disease endophenotypes, molecular and cellular neurobiology, developmental neurobiology, systems neurobiology, behavioral biology, psychopharmacology, epidemiology, cognitive remediation, and outcomes research. Supervised research, training in research methodology, and didactic seminars in schizophrenia comprise the two to three-year program, which is supported by a National Institute of Mental Health grant. Training aims at providing fellows the skills needed to successfully obtain their own research support.

Fellowship Title:

Psychiatry Research Fellowship

Fellowship Description:

The department of Psychiatry Research at the Zucker Hillside Hospital is pleased to offer a 2-year fellowship, under the direction of John Kane, M.D., designed for a board-eligible or certified psychiatrist who seeks advanced training in biomedical, neuroscience, and behavioral neuroscience research.

As a fellow, you will work closely with senior faculty on existing studies in schizophrenia and related psychoses, bipolar and unipolar mood disorders, or dementia. Projects may encompass psychiatric genetics/pharmacogenetics, neuroimaging (fMRI, DTI, PET), psychopharmacology (e.g., clinical trials, challenge assays), neuroendocrinology, neurochemistry, neurocognition, prodromal/first episode studies, phenomenology and assessment, and outcomes (e.g., functional disability, substance abuse, suicide). You will have the opportunity to develop independent lines of investigation, publish and pursue funding in preparation for careers in academic medicine.

If you are interested in this position, please send your CV and a letter outlining your interests. Minority applicants are encouraged to apply.
