POST-BACCALAUREATE RESEARCHER-UNC CHAPEL HILL
We are seeking up to 2 post-baccalaureate researchers in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC Chapel Hill to work on a joint project with Drs. Eva Telzer and Kristen Lindquist. We specifically are looking for BA-level researchers with skills in recruitment, screening, and data collection with adolescent participants and their families who wishes to gain more experience in research for graduate school. Fluency in spoken and written Spanish is highly desirable. The researcher would work on a unique dataset that combines theories and methods in developmental neuroscience (longitudinal fMRI data), social affective neuroscience (emotional processing, social interactions), and health behaviors (health risk behaviors, internalizing and externalizing disorders). Experience with fMRI acquisition, managing and processing fMRI data, computer science and coding, experience with social or developmental neuroscience methods, and an interest in adolescent interpersonal experiences, psychological symptoms, emotion, or risk behaviors is a plus. The applicant must have a BA in Psychology, Neuroscience, or related field by the time the position begins. The position also includes opportunities for professional development and unique interdisciplinary training that will be useful for a variety of academic career paths. Positions begin summer 2021.
Applicants should submit a CV, cover letter, and list of 2-3 references for initial review to Emily Bibby atemilybibby@email.unc.edu<mailto:emilybibby@email.unc.edu>. For bilingual applicants, please state explicitly in your cover letter level of fluency in written and spoken Spanish.
