Postdoctoral Fellow for Bucharest Early Intervention Project, University of Maryland

 

Funding is available for a postdoctoral fellow to work on the analysis and publication of data collected from the Bucharest Early Intervention Project. This project is a 16 year longitudinal, randomized controlled trial of the effects of early psychosocial deprivation and family intervention on children’s development. Data have been collected at multiple age points since randomization, with the most recently completed assessment when children were 12 years of age. Data are currently being collected when participants are 15-16 years of age, including EEG/ERP measures and biomarkers of stress.  The fellow would be tasked with exploring these data to examine behavioral, psychophysiological, immune and psychiatric outcomes and complete cross-domain analyses. Individuals ideally should have a Ph.D. in either Developmental or Clinical Psychology and have significant expertise in multivariate statistics and a strong interest in writing peer-reviewed journal articles.  Candidates with experience and/or interest in processing and analyzing EEG/ERP and/or stress biomarkers from dried blood spots are particularly encouraged to apply. 

 

Interested candidates should send their CV and a letter of inquiry to Nathan Fox fox@umd.edu.
