Posted: June 6, 2019

The Binghamton Mood Disorders Institute at Binghamton University (mood.binghamton.edu) is seeking to hire a Research Assistant/Lab Manager to start as soon as July 1, 2019.  This is a full-time, grant-funded position to assist with an NIMH-funded study examining attentional biases and psychophysiological reactivity in 6-12 month old infants of depressed and nondepressed mothers.  Duties will include coordinating participant recruitment, preparation of study materials, participant assessments, and database management.  The research assistant will also have numerous opportunities to author and co-author journal articles from this and other studies.  Salary will be $30,000 per year plus health insurance.

Qualifications include a BA/BS in psychology or related field.  Successful candidates will demonstrate a conscientious work style and strong interpersonal skills.

Matthew Nock, PhD (Harvard University), Evan Kleiman, PhD (Rutgers University), and Kate Bentley, PhD (Massachusetts General Hospital) are seeking applications for a full-time Research Assistant to coordinate and administer two NIMH-funded studies aimed at understanding and preventing suicidal behavior among adults hospitalized on a psychiatric inpatient unit.

Additional Qualifications: A Bachelor’s degree in psychology (or related field) and previous clinical psychological research experience (especially with clinical subjects) is strongly preferred. You must be able to work independently and in a highly organized way with minimal supervision, but also function well as part of a team.

Additional Information: This is a two-year, grant-funded term position, beginning o/a July 1, 2019. Renewal for a second year is contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance.
