The Training Program in Emotion Research is directed by Richard J. Davidson and funded by an NIMH Institutional National Research Service Award training grant. The program provides specialized, non-degree training for students at both the pre- and post-doctoral levels. A total of seven (7) University of Wisconsin pre-doctoral students are supported by the grant in any given year. In addition, three (3) post-doctoral trainees are supported each year.
The major activities of the training program include a year-long seminar on emotion theory and research that is co-taught by the training program faculty, participation in the annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, attendance at monthly meetings of faculty and students on topics in emotion research, ethics training, as well as other relevant activities on campus. Please contact John Koger at email@example.com for more information.
We look for diverse candidates with strong potential for future academic success, whose research interests are well aligned with those of the program and the desired faculty mentor.
Our training program is focused on three areas of current emotion research:
Trainees may work with any of the following faculty: Heather C. Abercrombie, Lyn Y. Abramson, Vaishali Bakshi, Ruth M. Benca, Christopher L. Coe, John J. Curtin, Richard J. Davidson, Marilyn Essex, Morton Ann Gernsbacher, H. Hill Goldsmith, Diane Gooding, Ned H. Kalin, Michael Koenigs, Wen Li, Joseph P. Newman, Paula Niedenthal, Jack B. Nitschke, Seth D. Pollak, and Carol D. Ryff.
We expect to appoint two new two-year predoctoral trainees for 2013-14.
Pre-doctoral nominees must apply to or be enrolled in a degree-granting graduate program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. If your application is seriously considered by a program faculty member, he or she may decide to nominate you for consideration by the selection committee by contacting John Koger at 608-263-0132 or 1202 W. Johnson St, Madison, WI 53706, or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in participating in the program, be sure to discuss this with your prospective advisor. UW-Madison faculty can nominate pre-doctoral students for the program, but pre-doctoral students cannot apply directly to the program themselves.
According to federal funding regulations, in order to be eligible for support, all applicants must be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals or lawfully admitted permanent residents. Individuals on temporary or students visas are not eligible for financial support.
We expect for all post-doctoral positions to be filled for the 2013-14 year.
