We have both NIMH T32 supported fellowship and NIH major research grant supported fellowship available.

MPRC is a leading research institution on schizophrenia and offers many opportunities to participate in large national and international studies on schizophrenia. Applicants with an interest in combining clinical and cognitive neuroscience with big data/machine learning methods in large-scale studies, or diffusion, functional or spectroscopy imaging or in electrophysiology, stress-related psychosomatics, in brain stimulation techniques such as TMS or TMS-ERP areas are encouraged. 

General educational activities will include internal courses on biological psychiatry, psychopathology, neuroimaging, genetics, journal clubs, meetings with invited outside senior researchers, grant writing workshops, and individualized career development.

Applicants are expected to hold an advance degree (M.D., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in psychology, neuroscience, psychiatry, computer science, medical physics, computational biology or related fields. This position is open to US and international scholars. 

Applicants should send a brief statement of research interest and a resume to Dr. Peter Kochunov Ph.D. or Dr. Elliot Hong, M.D., at pkochunov@som.umaryland.edu or ehong@som.umaryland.edu
