Postdoc in developmental psychology
Within the Trauma Recovery Lab we have an opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow (6 months, 90%).
The position has two main elements:
1. Participation in a study on parent-child communication in daily life in a community sample of families with 3 to 16 year old children. This study makes use of the Electronically Activated Recorder (EAR) methodology to audio record snippets of families’ interactions at home. The fellow will be involved in data collection, transcription/coding, data-analysis, and manuscript writing.
2. Development of new projects and grant applications. Ideally, the fellow has experience and expertise complementary to the lab’s so we can develop interesting new ideas together. Examples of topics we’re currently interested in (bold other ideas are welcome too!): family interactions, global child mental health, psychological first aid for children, child refugee mental health, neuropsychological/biological aspects of mental health, the implementation of evidence based mental health care.
We’re looking for a candidate with a PhD in a relevant area, e.g. child development, biological psychology, family studies, (global) mental health or implementation science. The expected start date is mid-January 2014. For more information, please see www.trauma-recovery.net. Applications can be submitted through the Monash Jobs website.
