The Biobehavioral Research Laboratory, under the direction of Michelle Bosquet Enlow, Ph.D., seeks a highly qualified postdoctoral fellow with an interest in developmental psychopathology and neurodevelopment. The ideal candidate will have experience in EEG and related methods (e.g., evoked potential [ERP]), and the analytic/statistical skills to relate such data to a wealth of existing and to-be-collected clinical and behavioral data. The individual selected for this position will be integrated into a longitudinal study initially focused on the neural correlates of emotion perception, overseen by Charles A. Nelson, Ph.D., who collaborates with Dr. Bosquet Enlow on the current project. The infants in the original study have been followed over the past decade. Current activities are focused on the developmental psychopathology of anxiety, with a particular focus on EEG and related methods, integrated with physiological, behavioral, and clinical methods.
Eligible applicants should have training in clinical or developmental psychology or developmental cognitive neuroscience, ideally with solid experience in neuroscience methods (particularly EEG) and experience with children. The fellow will have the opportunity to supervise and mentor research coordinators/assistants and undergraduate students and will be expected to have extensive involvement in data processing and analysis, and, correspondingly, in manuscript preparation and grant writing. Experience in advanced signal processing and statistical skills are desirable, as is clinical/developmental psychopathology experience. Applicants with less EEG experience but strong clinical experience, particularly in the area of child anxiety, will also be strongly considered.
This position is open for a possible start date as early as November 1st 2022. A 2-year commitment is preferred. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
– Doctoral degree in clinical or developmental psychology, neuroscience, or cognitive neuroscience, with a history of research focused on neurodevelopment and/or child anxiety
– Experience conducting research with children
– Excellent interpersonal, clinical, and research skills
– Experience with EEG/ERP
– Clinical experience, particularly with child anxiety
