Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Dr. Stewart Shankman is looking to hire two full-time postdoctoral research fellows for his lab at Northwestern University (Department of Psychiatry) who have expertise in human electrophysiology (and perhaps neuroimaging). The postdoctoral fellows will work on several current and pending National Institutes of Health (NIH) -funded studies examining the mechanisms and risk factors for internalizing psychopathologies (e.g., depression and anxiety) as well as the relation between internalizing and externalizing disorders. Candidates who have advanced statistical analysis abilities (e.g., mixture models/latent profile analysis, etc.) or knowledge of sophisticated electrophysiological methodologies (e.g., time frequency decomposition, source localization, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply. These postdoctoral fellows will have the unique opportunity to work on multi-method (e.g., psychophysiology, neuroimaging, behavior) research while gaining knowledge of psychopathology and mental health research. The postdoctoral fellows will take the lead on writing up papers using new and existing data and will be encouraged to pursue independent grants (e.g., K-awards), research, and collaborations within Northwestern University and across Dr. Shankman’s network of collaborators.

Applicants should email (a) a cover letter detailing your research experience and fit for Dr. Shankman’s lab, (b) a CV, (c) 3 representative publications, and (d) email addresses of three references. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Clinical Psychology or related discipline. Review of applications will begin immediately (expected start date: Spring/Summer 2021).

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes, including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women, underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.
