The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry/Psychology (CAPP) offers a position as post-doc to initiate collaboration with others in the Erasmus MC-Sophia Children's Hospital in the field of perinatal imaging, among others with the departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Neonatology (0.6 fte).

Additionally, the post-doc is involved in SHARING (Systematic Hospital-based Assessment of Rotterdam's critically Ill infants, their Neurodevelopment and Growth; 0.2 fte). SHARING is a longitudinal study addressing the neurodevelopmental trajectories following neonatal critical illness, from the perinatal period to school-age, and to compare these with trajectories of healthy controls. This insight may lead to the identification of early biomarkers of long-term memory deficits in survivors of neonatal critical illness that might improve early identification and treatment of survivors at risk of school problems later in life. SHARING is a collaboration between the departments Pediatric Surgery, Pediatric Intensive Care and Neonatology

Benefits

The position will be temporary, initially for 0.5 year, with the intention to extend to 2 years. The maximum gross monthly salary is € 4.615,- (scale 10) based on a workweek of 36 hours. The terms of employment are according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Dutch University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
