Stress Disorders: T32 Training Program
Funded by NIMH
To increase the number of fully trained investigators who conduct neuroscience research related to extreme stress and trauma-related disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder; who seek to gain in-depth research training in the neurobiology of extreme stress and trauma-related disorders.
- Program mentoring clinical neuroscience and experimental therapeutics
- Separate research mentoring
Fellows will work closely with a program mentor and a separate research mentor. These mentors will oversee all of the fellow’s research and training activities. The fellowship includes a core curriculum where trainees will develop skills related to research design and methodology, statistics, ethical conduct of research, psychological and behavioral assessment and the fundamentals of trauma-relevant neuroscience. Additionally, fellows will take elective courses related to their particular research area of interest. Fellows will begin their hands-on research activity by joining an ongoing project being conducted by their Research Mentor. Then, with the help of their research mentor, they will design and conduct their own trauma-related research project.
Who is eligible?
Postdoctoral fellows (advanced psychiatry residents, psychiatrists, and Ph.D.’s who have completed their doctorate in disciplines relevant to trauma-related research such as neuroscience, neurobiology, pharmacology and psychology).
