Post-doc/Project Director position at NU

Postdoctoral Fellowship/Project Director in Affective and Clinical Neuroscience at Northwestern University

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW/PROJECT DIRECTOR position is available in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University under the direction of Robin Nusslock, Ph.D. and Richard Zinbarg, Ph.D.  The position involves primary responsibility for the overall functioning and coordination of the Northwestern site of a NIMH R01 funded prospective, longitudinal two-site, study(the second site is UCLA under the direction of Michelle G. Craske, Ph.D. and Susan Bookheimer, Ph.D.). The project uses structural and functional neuroimaging to examine the cross-sectional and longitudinal relationship between threat- and reward-related neural circuitries and symptom dimensions of anxiety and depression during the developmental transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field.  The position provides a unique opportunity to work with structural (e.g., Diffusion Tensor Imaging) and functional MRI data in preparation for publication. Opportunities will also be available to participate in neurophysiology based research on participants with whom MRI data is also collected. Publication opportunities and collaborative research opportunities are plentiful and strongly encouraged. Prior experience with neuroimaging is preferred but not required.

The postdoctoral fellowship may be renewable for up to several additional years based on job performance and funding availability, by mutual agreement.  The position is available immediately although the specific start date is negotiable.  Northwestern University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we especially encourage applications from women and members of under-represented minorities. 

To apply for this position, please send a curriculum vita, cover letter describing research interest and experience, and have three letters of recommendation sent via email to Dr. Robin Nusslock (nusslock@northwestern.edu) and Dr. Richard Zinbarg, (rzinbarg@northwestern.edu).
