Job Description

The Women’s Integrative Sexual Health (WISH) Lab is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The WISH lab is housed within the Department of Psychology and the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior. The goal of this fellowship is to conduct and disseminate rigorous research in human sexuality, with a focus on the integration of psychophysiological, endocrine, and/or immune biomarker measures. This fellowship is designed as a two-year experience that includes in-depth training in sexual and reproductive health science, biomarker measurement and analysis, quantitative and qualitative methods, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Although it is expected that the Fellow will have some prior experience with biopsychological measures, significant hands-on training will be available in sexual psychophysiology and biomarker assay. In addition to the many existing projects and datasets available in the WISH lab, there are also ample opportunities for collaboration with our partners in the Department of Psychology; the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior; the Rural Drug Addiction Research Center; and the Minority Health Disparities Initiative. 

Duties of the position include:
    • Collaborating on project development, experimental design, and data analysis of sexual psychophysiology and/or biomarker research projects.
    • Assisting with project management and coordination on a variety of ongoing research projects.
    • Conducting biomarker assays.
    • Assisting with training and mentoring students and laboratory staff.
    • Providing guidance and consultation to faculty and students involved in biomarker and psychophysiology research.
    • Contributing to grant development.
    • Co-authorship and dissemination.

Salary and benefits are commensurate with NIH guidelines. The position is ideal for candidates wishing to ultimately pursue a variety of career paths, including a tenure-track faculty position with a combined focus on research, teaching, and mentoring as well as positions in non-academic settings. The start date is flexible. Priority deadline for applications is July 15th, but all applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
