FREE Job and Study Ads on SRF Get Results
In addition to our news and commentary, Schizophrenia Research Forum offers free advertising of jobs in mental illness and neuroscience research and related fields, as well as announcements of research studies at academic and nonprofit institutions that are looking for study participants. The announcements reach more than 4500
newsletter recipients, but are seen by thousands more who visit our website (we host about 13,000 sessions per month). We have repeatedly heard from researchers that they found their job (or the perfect postdoc) or helped fill up their study by posting an ad on SRF.

Here are some recent job postings:
  • Postdoctoral Position, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
  • Postdoctoral Position, University of Texas Medical School
  • Research Associate, Imperial College London, Institute of Clinical Sciences
  • Assistant Professor, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center
