FIU’s Department of Psychology and Center for Children and Families is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to participate in an NIMH funded study via the S.E.L.F Regulation Laboratory in collaboration with the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory to examine the neurobiology of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in young children with a particular focus on their executive function and emotion regulation abilities.
Candidates should have a PhD in psychology, developmental science, neuroscience, clinical science or related discipline. The project will use neuropsychological tests, psychophysiology, diffusion-weighted imaging and functional magnetic resonance imaging on children 4-6-years-old (with and without ADHD), and thus experience in neuroimaging data collection is highly desired. Experience working with young children with developmental disabilities is a plus, as is a clinical science background.
Salary is 50K plus benefits. The position is for two years with a possibility of renewal. Preferable start date is as soon as possible.
Interested candidates can find out more information here and send application materials (curriculum vitae, sample publications, three references and a letter describing research interests) directly to Dr. Paulo Graziano or Dr. Anthony Dick. Reviews of applications will begin immediately.
