The Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience, under the direction of Charles A. Nelson, Ph.D., seek several highly qualified postdoctoral scientists with an interest in neurodevelopment and expertise in early adversity. Postdocs will have the opportunity to engage in various studies, both domestic and international.

Eligible postdocs should have training in clinical or developmental psychology or developmental cognitive neuroscience and experience with young children. Ideal candidates will be highly motivated and independent scientists with the analytic/statistical skills to relate neuroimaging data to a wealth of existing and to-be-collected behavioral data (including developmental outcomes data and eye tracking data). Expertise in EEG methodology is preferred, including familiarity with EEG, evoked potentials, and event-related potentials. Prior programming experience is also preferred, with a strong preference for familiarity with MATLAB and/or Python programming environment and associated toolboxes (e.g., EEGLAB/ERPLAB, Fieldtrip, MNE-Python). Additional expectations include supervising and mentoring research coordinators/assistants and undergraduate students, extensive involvement in data processing and analysis, and correspondingly, involvement in manuscript preparation and grant writing.

A 2-year commitment is preferred. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

– Doctoral degree in clinical or developmental psychology, neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, with a history of research focused on neurodevelopment
– Experience conducting research with infants and/or children
– Excellent interpersonal, clinical, and research skills
– Experience with EEG/ERP
