Postdoctoral Associate Position at Stony Brook University
Stony Brook University has an opening for a full-time postdoctoral fellow to conduct research with Drs. Daniel Klein (psychology) and Roman Kotov (psychiatry). Duration of position is open and start date is negotiable.
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on a longitudinal investigation of personality development in adolescence and its links to depression onset. This is a multiwave study of a large adolescent cohort, which includes detailed assessment of psychopathology, personality, life stressors, cortisol levels, and event-related potentials. Our goals are to shed light on personality vulnerability to mental illness, mechanisms underlying this relationship, and developmental trajectories of risk.
The postdoctoral fellow will primarily be responsible for managing the study, preparing manuscripts, and writing grants. The fellow will receive ongoing training in research methods, grantsmanship, and substantive questions related to psychopathology and personality. This position permits access to other large longitudinal datasets. Clinical opportunities (e.g., conducting diagnostic interviews) are also available.
Qualifications include a 1) doctoral degree in psychology, 2) demonstrated expertise in research on depression, anxiety, or personality/temperament, and 3) minimum of one first-authored publication. Familiarity with diagnostic interviews and experience coordinating externally-funded studies are highly desired.
For questions, please contact Roman Kotov (firstname.lastname@example.org). To apply, please email your CV and contact information of three references. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
