The Department of Psychology at Hunter College of the City University of New York in Manhattan offers an NIH-funded, two-year full-time postdoctoral research scholar position focused on biobehavioral mechanism underlying attention bias modification for anxiety and the translation of basic findings towards the development of mobile mental health and eHealth interventions beginning in Fall 2015. The project integrates multiple methods including electrophysiology, eye-tracking, neuroendocrine measures of stress reactivity, genotyping, behavioral assays, and clinical interviews, with an emphasis on EEG/ERP methods.

Primary responsibilities include collecting and processing EEG, psychophysiological, biological, behavioral, and clinical data; interfacing with investigators and participating in interdisciplinary team meetings; analyzing data; preparing conference presentations and scientific publications and grant proposals. Other duties will include working with research assistants and graduate and undergraduate students. Qualified individuals will have a Ph.D. in the neuroscience, clinical, behavioral or health sciences, experience and skill with EEG/ERP data collection, processing, and analysis methods, and an interest in the application of neurophysiological and multimodal data to translational, clinical research (e.g., alternative neuroscience-based treatment approaches for anxiety, stress-related and mood disorders).


Experience with software programs for EEG/ERP processing (e.g., Brain Vision Analyzer), task programming (E-prime, Presentation), statistical analysis (SPSS, SAS) and general computing (e.g., MATLAB) is highly desired. Demonstrated productivity (published journal articles and scientific conference presentations) and excellent written and oral English communication skills are required. Competitive salary and benefits are provided, and will be based on training and experience. Applicants must have a doctoral degree from an APA-accredited program, and must have completed an APA-accredited internship, if applicable.
