NIMH-Funded Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cognitive Neuroscience
Applications are invited to work with scientists at the University of California, San Diego, and the Salk Institute, to study normal and abnormal brain function. Training will emphasize advanced methods for analyzing the neural bases of cognitive processes including perception, selection attention, learning and memory, and cognitive control, as well as in translational research relevant to the goals of NIMH. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents with ≤4 years of postdoctoral experience.
The fellowships are supported by the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) and provide an annual NIH stipend ranging from $47,484 - $52,140 depending on the years of postdoctoral experience and available funding.
Note that successful candidates need to work on projects that are currently funded by NIMH or conceivably could be funded by NIMH. Please write one or two sentences describing how your proposed research fits within the mission of NIMH, as found at these sites:
Additionally, please note that the mission of NIMH is broad, but that you need to conceptualize and express your research in a manner that makes clear how it contributes to that mission. Please bear that in mind as you write your proposal.
Applications are due April 3, 2017. More information can be found at:
