The Department of Psychiatry in conjunction with the Developmental Psychobiology Research Group at the University of Colorado Denver offers postdoctoral research training for MDs and PhDs interested in research careers in developmental psychobiology, with special emphasis on the development of maladaptive behavior. Program topics include (but are not limited to) vulnerable infants and/or children, developmental aspects of psychosis, genetic influences on behavior, cognitive neuroscience and human neurophysiology, autism and neurodevelopmental disorders, integrated treatment of substance abuse disorders, medical comorbidity, and primary prevention/interventions. Basic, genetic, molecular, neuroimaging, cognitive, behavioral, hormonal, clinical trials, phenomenology, and epidemiology training options are available. A strength of the program is its access to clinical populations including ADHD, anxiety, autism, aggression, bipolar, co-morbid medical illnesses, child abuse, depression, eating disorders, schizophrenia, and substance abuse disorders. Populations of interest include pregnant women, infants, preschoolers, school-age children, and adolescents including individuals of Native American and Hispanic heritage or whom have been involved in the foster care system.
