Post-doctoral fellowship

Post Doctoral Training Opportunity at the University of Oregon
The Development and Psychopathology Training Grant (DEEP) is a fellowship program funded by NIMH to the Child and Family Center (  This grant has been ongoing at the University of Oregon for 10 years, and is organized through the Child and Family Center (please see http//  We are advertising for one post-doctoral position (fellowship) associated with this training grant that will begin July 1, 2010.

 The continuation of the DEEP grant is intended to expand our training program in a number of new ways. First, the training grant is intended for post-doctoral trainees with a strong background in data analysis and research methods.  Second, this grant will emphasize training students to be skilled multi-cultural researchers. The grant will provide trainings in skills relevant to diversity in developmental processes and the intervention science.  Third, the training will focus on translational research, integrating areas of research such as neuroscience, genetics, developmental psychology, intervention techniques and change processes relevant to better understanding the etiology of mental health problems in children and adolescents and innovating new, more effective interventions (prevention and treatment).

 We have one position opening for next year beginning July 1 2010. The stipend provides full-time FTE through the summer for research in development and psychopathology and intervention science. Two years of funding is available contingent upon performance.   Applications that focus their areas of interest on research related to the Child and Family Center will have preference.

 We have 5 ongoing federally funded intervention trials (see which afford longitudinal data sets, several family and peer observational data sets, and an ongoing EEG high density array lab involving children and families.  Multiple researchers at the University of Oregon, OSLC, ORI and EGI have been involved in previous trainee research programs, and are welcomed.

Post-doctoral applicants with strong quantitative training as well as interests in linking intervention and developmental science (testing hypotheses with interventions), dynamic systems, peer focused interventions, multicultural issues of intervention and assessment with children, trauma effects and interventions, or longitudinal data analysis are encourage to apply. Cognitive neuroscience applicants with interests in translational research are encouraged to apply.

 Please write a 1 to 2 page letter of interest to Beth Stormshak, with

2 research references by April 30.  The positions will remain open until filled. You may email your application to

Please include your vitae.  You will be notified by May 31 of the final decision. Please cc email correspondence to Pamela Beeler at
