Position Description: The Social-Emotional Development and Intervention Lab (PI: Tina Malti, PhD) invites applications for two two-year post-doctoral research positions.
The positions are associated with a longitudinal study that investigates how emotions, physiological activity, visual attention, and changes in such activity across childhood and adolescence relate to the development of aggressive and prosocial behaviours.
Duties of the post-doctoral fellows will include: overseeing data collection, conducting data analyses, participating in preparing conference presentations and scientific articles for publication, supervising research assistants, and interfacing with researchers and practitioners who are collaborators in this research.
Qualifications: The successful applicants will hold a doctoral degree in developmental psychology, clinical child psychology, applied developmental psychology, or a related degree in the social and behavioural or health sciences. The applicants will also demonstrate outstanding statistical skills, and a strong interest in developmental psychology, clinical child psychology, intervention science, and research methodology. The post-doctoral fellow candidates should have experience supervising research assistants, evidence of independent scholarship, outstanding writing skills, and publication productivity in peer-reviewed journals. Background in any of the following areas will be an asset: social-emotional development, aggressive behaviour, eye tracking and physiological measurement, children’s mental health, peer relationships, and longitudinal designs.
