Stony Brook University seeks a full-time postdoctoral fellow to conduct research with Drs. Roman Kotov (Psychiatry and Psychology) and Daniel Klein (Psychology). Duration and start time are negotiable. We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to collaborate on the Adolescent Development of Emotions and Personality Traits (ADEPT) project, a longitudinal investigation that begun in 2012. A cohort of 550 girls (age 14) was followed to the end of adolescence, completing 5 assessment waves. We are now planning to follow participants through young adulthood, completing additional 4 waves. This will enable us to model trajectories of psychopathology (internalizing and externalizing) and related mechanisms across 10 years. Extensive longitudinal data are already available on first onsets of various disorders, broad range of symptoms, personality traits, stressors, neural processes (ERP and fMRI), and other biomarkers (cortisol, inflammation). Transcriptome-wide gene expression will be investigated in new waves. The fellow will primarily be responsible for supervising staff, conducting analyses, preparing manuscripts, and writing grants. Ongoing training will be available in statistical methods, grantsmanship, and substantive questions related to psychopathology, personality, and biological mechanisms. Clinical opportunities (e.g., conducting diagnostic interviews) are also available, as well as supervision meeting licensure requirements.  Stony Brook University is a highly collaborative environment with close relationships between psychology, psychiatry, neurobiology, and applied math departments. Qualifications include a 1) doctoral degree, 2) demonstrated expertise in advanced multivariate statistics and in psychopathology, as well as 3) a minimum of two first-authored publications. Familiarity with diagnostic interviewing, biological data (neural or genetic), and experience coordinating externally-funded studies are highly desired.  To apply, please email Roman Kotov ( roman.kotov@stonybrook.edu ) with your CV and contact information of three references. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
