Cognitive Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mental Health

A postdoctoral fellowship position is available at the University of Texas
at Austin, Department of Psychology and Institute for Mental Health
Research to conduct research with Drs. Christopher Beevers and David
Schnyer. This position is for two years with the possibility of extending
the fellowship or transitioning to research faculty by mutual agreement
based on job performance and funding availability. Duration and start time
are negotiable. Salary is commensurate with experience and consistent with
NIH guidelines.

We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow in cognitive neuroscience with strong
expertise in eye tracking and EEG/ERP methods who is interested in
translational research involving clinical populations. The postdoctoral
fellow will contribute to a program of research that examines the etiology
and treatment of depression in adults across multiple levels of analyses
(behavioral, genetic, neural, environmental). In addition to SR Research
eye- tracking and Brain Products EEG equipment located in Dr. Beevers’
laboratory, the postdoctoral fellow will have access to other cognitive
neuroscience resources at the University of Texas at Austin, including
fMRI, MR compatible EEG, TMS, and MEG.

The postdoctoral fellow will primarily be responsible for designing and
implementing EEG/ERP and/or eye tracking experiments, helping to support
other ongoing EEG/ERP studies within the laboratory, preparing manuscripts,
contributing to grant writing, and conducting analyses following data
collection. Opportunities to write manuscripts from extant datasets are
plentiful. Some staff supervision will also be expected. The fellow will
have advisors with expertise in psychopathology, cognitive neuroscience,
and grant writing. Individuals with a PhD in cognitive psychology,
cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology or related fields of study are
encouraged to apply for this position. Qualifications include a 1) doctoral
degree, 2) demonstrated expertise with EEG/ERP and/or eye tracking methods,
3) strong programming skills, and 4) an interest in clinical populations.
Excellent scientific writing skills and strong publication records are
highly desired. Applicants should be able to work independently but should
also demonstrate good interpersonal skills and a desire to work in a highly
collaborative environment.

Candidates should apply for this position at the following link:


Application materials (curriculum vita, cover letter describing research
interests and experience, three letters of recommendation) can be sent
electronically to beevers at utexas.edu. Please contact Christopher Beevers (
beevers at utexas.edu) or David Schnyer (schnyer at utexas.edu) with inquires
about this position.
