Child Psychiatry Translational Research Fellowship
Title: NIMH T32 Postdoctoral Fellowship for Translational Research in Child Psychiatric Disorders
Location: New York, NY, USA
Positions available: July 1, 2024
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through January 1, 2024.
NIMH–funded postdoctoral training fellowships are available to child psychiatrists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists, and psychologists to conduct translational research in childhood psychiatric disorders. Trainees are expected to conduct research in areas that could range from animal models, neuroimaging clinical trials, and the implementation and dissemination of evidence-based treatments.
The program is designed to impart the training and skills necessary to submit a competitive federally-funded mentored career development award or to secure an academic research faculty position. We emphasize interdisciplinary input into each trainee’s education and provide strong programmatic oversight to ensure that trainees have the tools required to successfully launch independent research careers.
Trainees will be mentored in core domains of translational research in child psychiatry including:
- The NIMH research domain criteria
- Translational neuroscience and therapeutics
- Research design, management, and ethics
- Scientific writing
- Oral presentation
- Grant preparation
The T32 Training Program is led by a group of internationally recognized researchers with strong records in basic neuroscience, neuroimaging, psychopharmacology, epidemiology, and clinical trials research including psychological and psychopharmacological interventions and prevention research. Some faculty include:
- Randy P. Auerbach, PhD
- Cristiane Duarte, PhD
- Katherine Elkington, PhD
- William Fifer, PhD

Candidates can elect to work in any of the numerous basic neuroscience, epidemiology, or clinical treatment laboratories affiliated with the program.
We particularly encourage applicants with identities that have historically been underrepresented in science, including those from minoritized or economically disadvantaged backgrounds and people with disabilities.
The position requires applicants to be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Individuals on a temporary visa are unfortunately not eligible. Both MDs and PhDs are eligible to apply.
