Advanced Associate/Full Faculty Position in the UCLA Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology at UCLA announces the continuation of its special initiative to recruit excellent tenured faculty with a successful record of mentoring students from underrepresented populations. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in psychology or a related field (such as neuroscience) and an outstanding record of scholarly accomplishment in publications, research support, and teaching, and will be eligible for an Academic Senate tenured appointment at the level of Full Professor or Advanced Associate Professor in Psychology.

Assistant Professor in the UCLA Department of Psychology

The UCLA Department of Psychology seeks to hire a full-time tenure-track assistant professor in quantitative psychology. We are interested in applicants pursuing innovative research in quantitative methods, broadly defined. Possible areas of specialization include, but are not limited to, advanced latent variable modeling (e.g., structural equation models, latent variable clustering methods, longitudinal transition models), modern research design (e.g., quasi-experimental design, adaptive randomized trials, propensity score methods, causal inference), predictive modeling (e.g., machine learning, data mining, analytic methods for big data), generalized linear models, and statistical modeling of psychological or neurobiological data. Candidates should add to the Department’s existing strengths in quantitative methods, and preference will be given to individuals whose methodological specialization has broad application and connection to ongoing research throughout the Department.

Postdoctoral Opportunity

We have an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow studying interactions between stress and fear using rodent models such as stress-enhanced fear learning in the Fanselow Laboratory at UCLA (https://fanselowlab.psych.ucla.edu).

Postdoctoral Opportunity

The Wikenheiser laboratory (https://wikenheiserlab.psych.ucla.edu/) at the University of California, Los Angeles is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral fellow position. Our group studies how neural representations support behaviors and cognitive processes such as learning, memory, and decision making. Primary techniques in the lab include single-unit recording in freely-behaving rats, optogenetics, and computational analysis/modelling.

Postdoctoral Opportunity

The UCLA Anxiety and Depression Research Center directed by Michelle G. Craske, PhD. is seeking a clinical scientist (Postdoc) with neuroimaging experience. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a range of studies being conducted in collaboration with Susan Bookheimer, PhD. that focus on fear learning and extinction, reward processing, emotion regulation and executive functioning as risk markers of psychopathology and as mediators, moderators and outcomes of novel treatments for depression and anxiety.

Postdoctoral Opportunity

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship under the joint mentorship of Dr. Carolyn Parkinson (Dept. of Psychology) and Dr. Mason Porter (Dept. of Mathematics) to begin Spring or Summer 2019 (the start date is somewhat flexible).
