The Clinical Psychophysiology Lab in the Psychology Department seeks a Research Associate in clinical psychophysiology focused on multi-method approaches – including behavior, EEG/ERP, fMRI, and peripheral physiology (e.g., startle eyeblink, heart rate, skin conductance) – to cognitive and affective mechanisms in anxiety and related psychopathology. The Research Associate will work with data from NIH-funded studies that examine associations between anxiety-related problems and cognitive-control, reward, and threat processing across the menstrual cycle and development. Research Associates are also encouraged to participate in and develop related projects in line with these themes.
