Job Description

The positions would be for two years with the possibility of extending for a third year, and could start as early as July 2024. The lab is moving from Northeastern to Washington University in St Louis, so this is a great opportunity to be part of developing the direction of the lab it its new location.

The goal of these positions is to be actively involved with the PI in the planning, execution and write-up of new studies on emotional processes in aging, including both in-lab, at-home and everyday life measurement, using a range of methods (eye tracking, physiology, behavioral measures). The lab is fast-paced and values a collaborative spirit, trying new methods and moving in new directions as determined by the interests of the members. There is also a lot of opportunity to conduct analyses of already-collected data, to be part of grant proposals (including more independent ones), to mentor graduate and undergraduate students in the lab, as well as to participate in the many resources on aging within the department and the University.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, or equivalent degree from a foreign institution, by the time of starting the position. Strong background in experimental methods and statistics is essential. Previous experience with any of the following is desirable but not required: eye tracking, psychophysiology research, multi-level modeling, Matlab programming.
