…is a multidisciplinary, inter-institutional center for the advanced study of human development guided by a Developmental Science perspective.
The faculty and fellows of the Center for Developmental Science form a community of scientists dedicated to understanding the complexity of human development with the goal of informing prevention and intervention efforts that improve the lives of children and families.
Our basic and applied research efforts identify adaptive family processes, effective educational efforts, and factors that promote mental health, physical health and well-being from infancy through adulthood.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP POSITION
The Carolina Consortium on Human Development at the Center for Developmental Science invites applications for NICHD (NRSA) postdoctoral traineeships. Multiple positions will be available for one year appointments, with renewal for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance and available funding. Advanced training will be provided in the longitudinal study of individual development over changing contexts (e.g., families, peer groups, schools) using multiple levels of analysis ranging from biology to socio-cultural. Specific areas of focus vary over trainee-mentor teams (e.g., psychology, education, sociology, public health, neuroscience, medicine, nursing, quantitative methodology). Faculty mentors have primary appointments in over 20 departments or schools at six neighboring universities and colleges (Duke University, Meredith College, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and University of North Carolina at Greensboro.) Fellowship candidates are expected to have a demonstrated commitment to transdisciplinary longitudinal study, and must have completed a terminal degree in their field (e.g., PhD, MD, DrPH, EdD) by the time of their appointment. In accordance with NIH regulations, applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.
