Dear colleagues, I am posting the following postdoc announcement on behalf of a colleague at Vanderbilt University:

The Stress and Early Adversity Laboratory (PI: Kathryn ([Kate] Humphreys) at Vanderbilt University invites applications for a postdoctoral position. The position has a flexible start date and could begin immediately (ideal start summer 2021). This position is for 2-4 years.

There are several ongoing projects examining the transition to parenthood, infant brain development, early environment/caregiving, and emerging psychopathology (read more at VUsealab.com/projects<https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.vusealab.com/projects__;!!Mih3wA!RIk07Hjn8Y5dtFJLdFinzD7sn4LhCCUj2I8U8xI_U9wVwylgcI884w-cxm6U97-n7K1fGw$ >). The successful candidate will be responsible for contributing to the dissemination of science and participating in intellectual discussions in and outside the lab. Postdoctoral fellows play a vital role in lab, working closely with the PI to steer scientific directions, assist in grant writing, as well as planning and managing projects, mentoring graduate students, full-time staff, and undergraduates.

Applicants with a PhD in psychology, human development, or neuroscience are likely to be the best fits for our research program. Ideal candidates should possess a background in advanced statistics, strong experimental and scientific writing skills, ability to work independently and in a team environment, interest/strengths in leadership, and be self-motivated. Experience working with children in a research setting is also desired. Additional strengths include competence in MRI data acquisition/analysis and/or clinical interviewing and assessment training.


If you are interested in the position, please email Kate (k.humphreys at vanderbilt.edu<mailto:k.humphreys at vanderbilt.edu>) a recent CV, a brief statement of research interests (1 page), and the contact information for 2 references. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
