We seek candidates whose interests align with the goal of the Section to better understand the genetic, environmental and neural and factors that influence both typical and atypical development. A major focus is on defining the factors that shape the development of neural systems in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and how this determines clinical outcome. We are seeking individuals who have interest and expertise in the analysis of neuroimaging data (particularly fMRI) and its integration with genomic and behavioral data.
The Section has strong links with the National Institute of Mental Health including its MRI and MEG facilities and the Clinical Center of NIH. Additionally, fellows will be encouraged to work collaboratively with others within the Social and Behavioral Research Branch to foster an interdisciplinary research approach. Fellows are supported in acquiring knowledge of cutting-edge genomics and its public health applications.
The fellowship is designed for those who have completed their doctoral training within the last 5 years. Experience of exome or whole genome sequence data and/or functional MRI data sets is strongly preferred. While no background in genetics is required the post-doctoral fellow will be expected to become proficient in the analysis of genomic sequence data.
Initial questions about the fellowship should be addressed to Philip Shaw firstname.lastname@example.org. The fellowship includes a competitive salary, benefits, and a professional travel stipend. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and names of three references to the relevant investigator.
