Per NIH Grants Policy 18.104.22.168, candidates must be U.S citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Candidates must be nominated by a UCLA Faculty Member who is listed as a Participating Mentor in the Training Program in Neurobehavioral Genetics. Any applicantions that identify a mentor outside of this list will not be considered.
Candidates will be selected mainly on the basis of prior research accomplishments and academic promise. In keeping with the program's goals, preference will be given to applicants who are trained in psychiatry, neurology, or psychology, although we also seek outstanding applicants with other backgrounds. Proposed projects must have relevance to neurobehavioral genetics. As we are committed to enhancing equity, diversity and inclusion within the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences, we highly encourage minority candidates from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from economically, socially, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to apply.
All application materials should be submitted by the applicant as a single PDF file using the following naming convention: Applicant First Name Last Name_Mentor Last Name_Level_Application.pdfFor example, if Jay Bruin is applying for a predoctoral fellow appointment with Dr. Carrie Bearden as their mentor, their application should be named “Jay Bruin_Bearden_Predoc_Application.” If Jay Bruin is applying for a postdoctoral fellow appointment with Dr. Roel Ophoff as their mentor, their application should be named “Jay Bruin_Ophoff_Postdoc_Application.”
