The Department of Psychology at Kent State University invites applications for a post-doctoral research position in Behavioral Neuroscience. The successful candidate will become part of a multi-disciplinary investigation to better understand genetic and behavioral predictors of psychological risk. Specifically, this research program, led by Drs Karin Coifman and Aaron Jasnow, aims to examine the association between genetic polymorphisms, their resultant alterations in brain function and emotional response behavior in both humans and rodents to build a more comprehensive model of the genetic influence on psychiatric risk and identify new avenues for treatment. The Behavioral Neuroscience position is primarily mentored by Aaron Jasnow, Ph.D. (Behavioral and Molecular Neuroscience) with additional mentoring and collaboration opportunities with Dr Karin Coifman and other faculty from a variety of disciplines.

This position offers the opportunity to develop an integrated research program and enhance skills necessary for a successful academic/research career. This position is internally funded for up to two years. However, renewal of appointments will be dependent upon performance. Salary is consistent with current NIH post-doctoral training levels and includes health insurance and a stipend for professional travel.
