Neuropsychology Research Fellowship

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Neuropsychology

Aging and Alzheimer's Neuropsychology Track

The Harvard Partners Consortium in Clinical Neuropsychology seeks candidates for a 2 year fellowship, the Aging and Alzheimer’s Neuropsychology track, to begin on September 1, 2022. The joint BWH/MGH fellowship is a program of Harvard Medical School. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion and encourage candidates from underrepresented groups to apply. One fellowship slot is available.

The fellowship program is designed to provide excellent clinical training in neuropsychology and opportunities to conduct research in the Harvard Aging Brain Study. Experiences and didactics conform to Houston Conference/Division 40 training requirements so that fellows will be successful in obtaining board-certification (ABPP) in clinical neuropsychology. Harvard Partners is an Independent fellowship program.

This fellowship track is a two-year program of full-time education and training that takes place across two sites: the Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Harvard Aging Brain Study (HABS) at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) at Charlestown Navy Yard. The program schedule is divided into clinical activities at BWH, clinical trial activities at BWH, and clinical research in aging and Alzheimer’s disease at MGH HABS for the duration of the fellowship.

During the first year of the program, fellows will engage in clinical training and neuropsychology didactics, as well as participating in assessment in clinical trials and research projects at MGH HABS. The second year, fellows will continue with clinical training at BWH and focus more time at MGH HABS on research related activities. The training experience is enriched by a highly collaborative teaching environment in which the fellow will work closely with neuropsychologists, behavioral neurologists, psychiatrists, and others with a special interest in brain and behavior.

A competitive stipend ($50,000 year 1; $55,000 year 2) plus excellent benefits are offered. An academic appointment will be made as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School.

Applicants should be graduates of APA/CPA accredited programs in clinical psychology or neuropsychology and should have completed an APA/CPA-approved predoctoral internship. Completion of the doctoral degree is required before the fellowship start date.

Only electronic applications will be accepted. Interested applicants should e-mail application materials to Dr. Rebecca Amariglio including:

  • Letter of intent, including a personal statement describing clinical and research experiences, fellowship expectations, and career goals
  • CV
  • 1 sample report (deidentified)
  • Reprints or pre-prints of published manuscripts if available
  • Transcript from graduate school(s) (photocopy acceptable)
  • Verification that doctoral training is completed or will have been completed before commencing postdoctoral training.

In addition, applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation (at least one from a research supervisor/mentor) to be emailed directly from recommenders to Dr. Amariglio.

The deadline for applications is December 3, 2021. Interviews are required and will be scheduled for January 2022.
