The Child Study Center offers an enriched environment for scientific research not only into new treatments, but also into the risks, predictors, and causes of childhood mental disorders. The Center's psychiatric investigators benefit from exciting collaborations with scientists of the NYU School of Medicine, NYU School of Education, the NYU Center for Neural Science (Research Unit for Pediatric Psychopharmacology, RUPP) and the Nathan Kline Psychiatric Institute.

The Center is one of only seven federally funded Research Units for Pediatric Psychopharmacology in the nation to offer free clinical trials for children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders.


The T32 is a two-year NIMH-funded post-doctoral position which is available to Ph.D. psychologists and child psychiatrists who are interested in pursuing a career in children's mental health research. Fellows select mentors from the illustrious faculty of the Child Study Center and pursue a course of independent research and didactics, with the goal of becoming independent investigators.

Available resources include faculty expertise in pharmacological and psychosocial intervention trials, neuroimaging, longitudinal studies and assessment of child/adolescent psychopathology.
