Post Doctoral Research Fellowship Position - Sleep and Anxiety Center of Houston (SACH), University of Houston

 

The Sleep and Anxiety Center of Houston (SACH) at the University of Houston has an opening for a FT postdoctoral research fellow to assist with various federally-funded research projects. Research at SACH focuses broadly on the connections between sleep-wake patterns and daytime emotion regulation and affective disorders in both children and adults. Current studies are funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). More information about these projects can be found at www.uh.edu/SACH.

 

The post doc will gain with experience in manuscript and grant writing, project management, data analysis, and clinical assessment. Clinical supervision will be provided by a licensed clinical psychologist. Experiencing and/or training in sleep research and medicine is ideal but not necessary. The successful candidate will have exceptional organizational, communication (written and oral), and data management/analytic skills. Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in clinical psychology or a related field (e.g., developmental psychology). The salary and benefits package is highly competitive. Application materials, including a letter of research interests and goals, CV, research writing sample, and three letters of reference should be sent directly to the SACH Director, Dr. Candice Alfano at caalfano@uh.edu.
