For more information see the job posting at the following link:  Medical College of Wisconsin - Clinical Research Assistant II

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

A postdoctoral position is available with the Milwaukee Trauma Outcomes Project and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Medical College of Wisconsin. Fellows will be co-mentored by Dr. Christine Larson and Dr. Terri deRoon-Cassini. The fellow will support NIH funded projects examining relations between neurobiological indices (multimodal neuroimaging, endocannabinoid signaling) and socio-environmental stress and protective factors (e.g., neighborhood disadvantage, discrimination, social support, community cohesion), and in turn how these measures predict long term risk for PTSD and other outcomes among recent trauma survivors.

Projects include a significant focus on addressing systemic barriers affecting racial/ethnic minorities and those facing socioeconomic disadvantage. Fellows will be able to take lead authorship on papers using extant data and will also have the opportunity to contribute to ongoing projects, including studies of urban Black trauma survivors and youth victims of violence. The fellow will also contribute to mentorship of junior trainees.

Candidates will hold a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology or a related field with experience in analysis of multi-modal neuroimaging data. Expertise with trauma, stress or related problems is desirable, but not necessary. A track record of publications is preferred. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The position will be paid through the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). UWM is classified as an R1 institution in the Carnegie classification. UWM and the UWM Psychology Department are dedicated to enhancing diversity and inclusion in recruitment and employment. Qualified applicants should send a .pdf including a cover letter, CV, representative publications, and contact information for three referees to Dr. Larson at larsoncl@uwm.edu.
