About the Opportunity

The Computational Clinical Psychology Lab at Northeastern University is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher. The focus of the lab is using innovative statistical strategies to improve the treatment and classification of emotional disorders (i.e., anxiety and depression disorders). Specifically, the principal objective of lab's research is to improve diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of emotional disorders by embracing a precision medicine framework that uses computational modelling to capture the idiographic, dynamic, and multidimensional nature of emotional disorders.

The successful candidate will contribute to ongoing projects, as well as develop and lead new projects in the lab and in collaboration with others at Northeastern and other institutions. This position offers mentored experience in developing an independent research program, making it an excellent fit for individuals planning to lead computational psychology, clinical psychology, or data science research in an academic or non-academic setting.


Duties will include:
  • Contributing to ongoing projects, as well as developing and leading new projects in the lab and in collaboration with others at Northeastern and other institutions. Projects will often involve secondary data analysis of already collected data, as well as some effort in managing original data recruitment
  • Engaging in opportunities to develop original research ideas and collaborate on scientific manuscripts suitable for publication
  • Mentoring of graduate students and research assistants in their progress related to study tasks, academic development, and career development.

  • PhD degree (expected by September 2023) in Psychology, Statistics, or a related discipline.
  • Track record of relevant research experience and strong project management skills (both peer-reviewed publications and preprints are considered).
  • Strong quantitative skills, including familiarity with statistical programming in R.
  • Familiarity with topics such as time-series data or machine learning is preferred but not essential.
