Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available at the Rhode Island Hospital Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center in the Brown University departments of neurology and psychiatry. The successful candidates will become part of a large, multidisciplinary diagnostic, treatment, and research center, and they will have ample opportunities for collaborations.

The fellowship may be for one or two years. The aims are to provide the fellows with 1) postdoctoral training in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, 2) a strong working knowledge of clinical trial design and management as well as translational research in aging and dementia, and 3) opportunities for independent research and collaboration with basic science colleagues in preparation for a clinical research career in dementia and aging.

The Aging and Dementia Fellowships provide an integrated training program for postgraduate trainees in neurology, psychiatry, geriatric medicine, and neuropsychology who are planning combined clinical and research careers in age-related disorders and dementia. The program's primary strengths and focus for fellowship research training include the areas of 1) epidemiology and public health, 2) cognitive neuroscience, and 3) neuropathology and laboratory research.


Candidates should have completed either an ACGME-accredited neurology residency, psychiatry residency, or geriatric medicine fellowship, or have a Ph.D. from an APA-approved clinical psychology graduate program and internship with specialty training in neuropsychology. Applications should include cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names/contact information of three professional references.
