We are seeking applications for a lead postdoctoral researcher position on a longitudinal study that investigates biomarkers of risk and resilience to mood disorders in adolescence. Responsibilities include participation in an active research team engaged in multi-modal data collection; data management and analysis; manuscript preparation; and study-related administration. There are opportunities for preparing grant proposals and collaboration on complementary studies in youth with current mood disorders, and in youth and adults engaged in intervention.
We are seeking to hire two Professional Research Assistants with skill in clinical or neuroscience research and database management.

Our team includes undergraduate students with a strong background in psychology or neuroscience. Undergraduate students may join the lab as volunteers to gaining experience in a clinical research environment; activities include conducting research sessions, helping to run neuroimaging scans, database management, performing literature reviews, and attending lab meetings. Please know that undergraduate members of the team are expected to commit to at least ten hours per week for at least two academic semesters; this commitment makes it possible to complete the complex training requirements of a clinical neurocognitive research lab.If you have any questions, feel free to email our lab.
