Postdoctoral Fellowship Position- University of Nevada Las Vegas

The Auditory Cognitive Development Lab in the department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at University of Nevada Las Vegas are offering a postdoctoral fellowship position for the Development of misophonia and other auditory affective experiences in children and adolescents project, sponsored by a grant from the Misophonia Research Fund. The position is for 2 years starting March 2024 or shortly after. The project examines high-level auditory affective experiences during development, by examining the relationship between misophonia and music and language skills in developing children, adolescents, and adults. The research will take a longitudinal approach using a combination of clinical instruments and perceptual testing with listeners age six through adulthood. The position emphasizes an apprenticeship model where the postdoctoral fellow will work collaboratively and closely with three faculty mentors who have expertise in developmental science, cognitive neuroscience, and clinical psychology. The position requires a Ph.D. from a regionally accredited college or university in a related discipline (Psychology, Neuroscience, etc.). Preferred skills include experience supervising, mentoring and management of others, excellent experimental and computer programming skills, and a promising track record of publications in Psychology, Developmental Science, Speech and Hearing, Neuroscience, or another field related to the project. Specific experience with EEG, child testing, longitudinal research, and/or advanced data analysis techniques is desirable but not required. Credentials must be obtained prior to the start of employment.

To apply, submit a letter of interest, a detailed resume listing qualifications and experience, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least three professional references who may be contacted. Applicants should fully describe their qualifications and experience, with specific reference to each of the minimum and preferred qualifications because this is the information on which the initial review of materials will be based. 

Although this position will remain open until filled, review of candidates’ materials will begin immediately and best consideration will be gained for materials submitted prior to January 2024. Materials should be addressed to Dr. Erin Hannon, Search Committee Chair, and are to be submitted online as we do not accept emailed materials.
