The Gene, Environment, and Emotion Lab (GEnE Lab) led by Dr. Suzanne Vrshek-Schallhorn in the Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro seeks an outstanding research-oriented clinical psychology PhD for a full-time postdoctoral position.

The successful candidate will contribute to conducting and publishing studies examining genetics, biomarkers such as cortisol, sleep actigraphy, both acute lab-induced stress and naturalistic life stress, and depression and its related outcomes. Candidates interested in pursuing an academic career and who have experience in one or more of these areas are most appropriate. Two years of hard money funds are available, with the second year contingent on performance. Faculty will support the postdoc’s preparation of first author papers, external funding applications, and application for clinical licensure.
