Subject:Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Notre Dame

A POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW position is available in the Development and Psychopathology Laboratory of Dr. Kristin Valentino in the Department of Psychology and Shaw Center for Children and Families at the University of Notre Dame. The fellowship will involve working on an NICHD- funded longitudinal randomized clinical trial which is evaluating a brief, dyadic intervention for maltreated preschool-aged children and their mothers in fostering maltreated children’s development in cognitive, emotional, and physiological domains and in improving their mothers’ parenting. Primary responsibilities include analyzing data; preparing scientific publications; interfacing with investigators and participating in team meetings; grant development; and collaboration in training and oversight of undergraduate research assistants in observational coding and data management. The fellow will also have opportunities to provide mentorship and collaborate with doctoral students and to supervise undergraduate research. The research environment at Notre Dame is highly collaborative with opportunities to extend or develop new ideas in an interdisciplinary environment. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Clinical or Developmental Psychology or related fields. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. Demonstrated productivity in terms of published journal articles and scientific conference presentations is expected. Knowledge and expertise with advanced statistical techniques such as SEM, growth curve modeling, MLM, etc. are desirable. Experience in any of the following areas is particularly relevant: developmental psychopathology, typical or atypical socio-emotional and cognitive development, memory development, child maltreatment, mother-child interactions, and/or mother-child stress physiology. The postdoctoral fellowship may be renewable for a second year based on job performance and funding availability, by mutual agreement. The position is available to begin in the Summer or Fall of 2016. Interested applicants should send (1) a letter of application indicating research interests, career goals, and experience; (2) a curriculum vita; and (3) three letters of professional reference to Dr. Kristin Valentino at Kristin.valentino@nd.edu . Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. More information may be found here: http://dplab.nd.edu/prospective-students/postdoctoral-fellowship. The University of Notre Dame seeks to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty, staff and administration. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to building a culturally diverse workplace. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity. Moreover, Notre Dame prohibits discrimination against veterans or disabled qualified individuals, and requires affirmative action by covered contractors to employ and advance veterans and qualified individuals with disabilities in compliance with 41 CFR 60-741.5(a) and 41 CFR 60-300.5(a). -- Kristin Valentino, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Psychology William J.
