The Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (PI: Maital Neta) invites applications for a full-time Postdoctoral Researcher (start date negotiable). The postdoc will contribute to NIMH- and NSF-funded research examining individual differences in emotion processing and emotion regulation across the lifespan.

The successful candidate will have completed a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field and have a strong publication record that includes neuroimaging studies, preferably with a focus on using fMRI to examine theoretically relevant questions in cognitive psychology and emotion in particular. Candidates with substantial prior experience using advanced MRI methods (e.g., resting state MRI, MVPA, network analyses), psychophysiology and/or with eye tracking are uniquely attractive. Strong technical skills are preferred, including competence in several programming environments, and familiarity with programs such as E-prime, R, Matlab, Python, AFNI, SPM, FSL, and Unix is especially valued but not required and otherwise would be learned on the job.

The lab is housed in the Center for Brain, Biology, & Behavior at UNL (, which has a state-of-the-art Brain Imaging Center and a 3T MRI scanner dedicated for research. Beyond having access to the scanner, the postdoctoral fellow will also have access to with EEG/ERP, fNIRS, tDCS, virtual reality, mobile psychophysiology, eye-tracking (many of which can be measured both in and out of the MRI scanner), as well as several other cutting-edge techniques.

The position is available immediately, but the start date can be flexible. We will begin reviewing applications immediately, and continue reviewing them on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Salary is commensurate with experience, and includes health benefits.
