Postdoc Position at the University of Arizona - Sleep and Divorce: Identifying Bidirectional Vulnerability and Resilience

Drs. David Sbarra and Matthias Mehl, at the University of Arizona’s
Department of Psychology, have an opening for a 12-month
federally-funded postdoctoral fellow (with the option to extend the
position for another 10 months, pending the availability of funds).

Sbarra and Mehl co-direct a NIH R01 (HD#069498) project entitled, Sleep
and Divorce: Identifying Bidirectional Vulnerability and Resilience,
which is a prospective, multi-method study of how adults’ cope with the
end of marriage (3-wave measurement burst design of objective sleep,
objective social environment, and subjective stress assessments).

This postdoctoral fellowship will provide training at the intersection
of clinical, social, and health psychology. Opportunities exist in a
range of areas, including the objective assessment of daily social
behavior (e.g., using the Electronically Activated Recorder, EAR) and
sleep/sleep disturbances, psychophysiology, psychoneuroimmunology, and
advanced statistical modeling. We are looking for a motivated scientist
who can join our collaborative research team and take a lead in
analyzing data and preparing publications from the study.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in quantitative methods
and the analysis of change, including knowledge of multilevel and
structural equation modeling, as well as a familiarity with the software
package R.

The University of Arizona is located in Tucson, Arizona. It’s a fabulous
place to live and the Department of Psychology is a wonderful place to work.

Interested applicants can contact David Sbarra
(sbarra@email.arizona.edu) or Matthias Mehl (mehl@email.arizona.edu)
with any questions. To apply, please submit your application at this
website: www.uacareertrack.com/applicants/Central?quickFind=215442  and have three letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Sbarra.

The post-doc has a July start date but that is very flexible.
