Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cognitive and Brain Aging

We are seeking Post-Doctoral Fellows for a major NIA funded longitudinal study of cognitive and brain aging in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). The UCSD Department of Psychiatry is one of the top research departments in the United States. The post-doctoral fellows work primarily on the Vietnam Era Twin Study of Aging (VETSA); the PIs are Drs. William Kremen, Carol Franz, and Michael Lyons. VETSA constitutes a rich interdisciplinary study that can address a wide variety of important research questions elucidating risk and protective factors for cognitive and brain aging as well as life course development from over 1600 subjects. Three waves of in-depth cognitive, psychosocial and health, biomarker, GWAS, and MRI data in twins are completed. Wave 4 data collection started in 2020. The study has been ongoing since 2002. The fellowship also includes opportunities to participate in several international consortia, including CHARGE, ENIGMA, IGEMS, and PGC. Continue reading

Postdoctoral researcher positions at the University of Minnesota


Professor Scott Vrieze and the Minnesota Center for Twin and Family Research are seeking postdoctoral scholars to investigate the nature, origins, and development of addiction, psychopathology, and related conditions using genetically informative designs. These include genome-wide association studies and large longitudinal twin and adoption designs.  Individuals in the position will report directly to Dr. Vrieze, and will be housed within the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota as well as the Minnesota Center for Twin and Family Research, led by Profs Vrieze along with Bill Iacono, Matt McGue, Sylia Wilson, Monica Luciana, and Steve Malone. Both of these institutions have a vibrant history and exciting future in the use of genetic designs to understand the nature and origins of behavior and human experience. Scholars from the US and outside the US are eligible for this position. Informal inquiries may be sent to Scott Vrieze at vrieze@umn.edu.
