The TReAD Lab has positions for postdoctoral fellows, postbac research assistants, graduate students, and undergraduate assistants.
Postbac Research Assistants
A Research Assistant/Interviewer position will be available starting winter/early spring of 2018 in the Translational Research in Affective Disorders Laboratory in the Department of Psychology at Emory University. The Research Interviewer will assist with all aspects of the research process (designing/programming experiments, recruiting/running participants, analyzing behavioral and neuroimaging data). This is an excellent position for anyone seeking research experience and training in clinical and cognitive neuroscience before applying to graduate programs.
Necessary skills/qualifications: A bachelor's degree or higher in cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, psychology, math, biology, or other related field. Strong computer programming skills (especially MATLAB and/or Python) are required. Candidate should be self-motivated, independent, and reliable. Strong organizational and communication skills are also essential. Prior experience in human affective, clinical or cognitive neuroscience (e.g., conducting and analyzing fMRI or MRI studies), behavioral experiment administration, IRB management, or clinical interviewing experience will all be viewed positively, but are not required. A two-year commitment is required.
To apply, please send letter of interest, CV/resume, and contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new post-doctoral position in computational psychiatry and functional neuroimaging of mood and anxiety disorders is available in the Translational Research in Affective Disorders Laboratory (TReADLab) in the Department of Psychology at Emory University. Located in the heart of Atlanta, GA, the Department of Psychology at Emory provides an outstanding environment in which to pursue post-doctoral training in clinical neuroscience. Full salary and benefits are guaranteed for two years.
Responsibilities: Desirable candidates will develop and pursue novel research questions within the lab’s general area. Responsibilities will include designing/programming experiments, recruiting/running participants, analyzing behavioral and neuroimaging data, presenting data at national and international meetings, and preparing manuscripts for publication. Candidates will be strongly encouraged to apply for extramural funding during the post-doctoral period, and will be supported in these efforts.
Necessary skills/qualifications: A doctoral degree and promising publication record in cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, psychology, or related field. Strong functional neuroimaging background and/or computer programming skills (e.g. MATLAB and/or Python) are required. Should be self-motivated, independent, and reliable. Research experience in affective, clinical or cognitive neuroscience (e.g., conducting and analyzing fMRI or MRI studies), will all be viewed positively, but are not required.
Interested parties should email a CV, names of relevant professional references, and a brief statement of interest to Brittany DeVries at email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed beginning 9/1/2017 until the position is filled. Start date is flexible depending on candidate availability.
We are accepting graduate students for admission in the Fall of 2018, and are interested in students with strong interests in clinical science and cognitive neuroscience. Students will have opportunities to both contribute meaningfully to ongoing projects as well as develop their own areas of research within the lab’s broader focus on relationships between value-based decision-making and internalizing psychopathology. Strongest applicants will have a demonstrated foundation in cellular and molecular neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, and abnormal psychology. Experience with programming (Matlab, Python), advanced statistical analysis and/or experience collecting and analyzing neuroimaging data is also recommended, though not required. If you have additional specific questions regarding applying to the lab, please feel free to email Dr. Treadway (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your interest in the lab.
The lab accepts undergraduate students with an interest in our work to contribute to on-going projects. Please send your CV and a brief statement of intent to Brittany DeVries (email@example.com).
