The PRC offers Postdoctoral Research Fellowships for individuals who have a significant interest in cognitive therapy, dissemination, schizophrenia and suicide research.

Opportunities for basic, effectiveness and dissemination research are available. See the Fellowships page for more information.
The PRC may have positions available during the academic year for students of the University of Pennsylvania . Work-Study participants assist with studies and office duties while learning about psychological and psychiatric research from world-renowned professors and researchers. If positions are available, postings for Work-Study students can be found at the University of Pennsylvania Student Employment website.
The PRC has limited positions available for unpaid volunteers who are interested in learning more about the psychiatric and psychological research. Volunteers work closely with staff at the PRC in various roles depending on volunteer background and needs of the department. Efforts are made to match interests of volunteers with research in which they are interested but positions are dependent upon availability and needs of the department. Individuals interested in volunteering at the PRC should contact Dr. Walter Matweychuk.
