Postdoctoral and Predoctoral Positions

The Yale School of Medicine Mood Disorders Research Program has postdoctoral positions performing NIH and foundation-funded multimodality magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, DTI, fMRI) research projects in mood disorders and suicide thoughts and behaviors. Research includes cross-sectional and longitudinal study of effects of development, aging, gender, genetic variation and early life stress, as well as a novel psychobehavioral intervention (BE-SMART) delivered remotely and that incorporates digital wearable and smartphones. The work will be performed in the context of the state-of-the-art Yale Magnetic Resonance Research Center, with exciting opportunities for bidirectional research translation with basic science laboratories and clinical research programs across the university. All candidates must have relevant neuroimaging research experience with related references. Postdoctoral candidates must have an MD or a PhD in a relevant research field. Please email a CV, a cover letter with a brief statement of research interests, and names of two research supervisors willing to provide references to Dr. Hilary Blumberg at
