POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE IN PRODROME/EARLY PSYCHOSIS
The Northwestern University Adolescent Development and Preventive Treatment (ADAPT) program is seeking applications for two postdoctoral fellows.
For one position, we are looking for someone with background in cognitive/affective neuroscience or clinical psychology, with interests and experience in electrophysiological assessment and/or neuroimaging.
For the other position, we are looking for someone with experience in clinical assessment as well as research interests in adolescent development, clinical high-risk states and/or early psychosis more broadly.
Currently we are running a number of protocols with typically developing, prodromal syndrome and early psychosis populations focusing on biomarker, treatment, and scale development. Join our team and be involved with collecting and writing up data from any and all of these great and innovative multimodal studies. Please see our website for more details: http://www.adaptprogram.com.
The successful applicant will join Vijay Mittal and an active research team and will be responsible for designing experiments, analyzing and processing data, and publishing/presenting findings. There will also be ample opportunities for advanced training (Northwestern has a number of in-depth training opportunities, covering a range of methodological and quantitative methods), collaborations (benefit from a number of active ADAPT lab collaborations), building mentorship experience (learning to direct and supervise research and career development for graduate students), and developing an independent research program. Significant attention will be placed on career development (e.g., regular conference attendance/participation, training in grant writing, peer review, mentorship, teaching, presentations/job-talks etc.) These are both ideal positions for someone interested in preparing for a tenure track job.
For questions or to submit and application, please contact Vijay Mittal (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applicants should send a C.V., brief letter describing interests and prior experience (note preference for which position you are applying for), and two publications (that best reflect contributions of the candidate). Salary is based on the NIMH Post-doctoral scale, and funding is available for up to two-years (appointments are for one year, but renewable for two years, based on progress/merit). There is a flexible start date (Fall 2017, Winter/Spring 2018), and review of applications will begin October 1st 2017.
Additional Salary Information: Salary is based on the NIMH Post-doctoral scale.
Adolescent Development and Preventive Treatment (ADAPT) Program is a research lab affiliated with Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. The lab has locations in Evanston and downtown Chicago. The research is primarily focused on the prodromal syndrome and early psychosis. The research team runs several NIMH, Foundation, and University funded studies focusing on: brain, immune, and endocrine cha...nges in response to aerobic exercise; neurobiology of motor dysfunction; timing of affective processing dysfunction; utilizing fMRI to determine the effects of brain stimulation on working memory in first-episode psychosis. All research is conducted under supervision of the program director, Vijay Mittal, PhD.
