All staff are clinically experienced with schizophrenia and professionally trained for diagnosis and rating; rater reliability is updated quarterly. The Division regularly hosts residents, Ph.D. students, medical students, and other interested students who want to become involved in clinical neuroscience research. We receive inquiries and trainees from the new Clinical Services Department of UTSW.
We look for a person who is interested in aspects of basic neuroscience as they apply to psychiatric diseases, particularly dimensions of psychosis and depression. Someone who is interested in using human tissues, including clinically well-characterized human post-mortem brain tissue, DNA, and case-specific fibroblasts as translational tools, in connection with animal models of functional brain diseases and in vivo human brain imaging, would be rewarded in our laboratory.
