Seeking post-bacc RA position, flexible in location and start date
I am a recent graduate of Binghamton University (B.S. in Integrative Neuroscience) preparing to apply to a PhD program that focuses on affective neuroscience/clinical psychology and neurocognition. I just recently completed my undergraduate curriculum and graduated with magna cum laude, as well as, a member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society. I am looking to gain more research experience and further develop my skill set before applying. I currently reside in Long Island, and am willing to travel to most of the east coast, and great lake region.
I worked in the Mood Disorder Institute at Binghamton University for 2.5 years and was also able to successfully defend my own honors thesis project. In this project I looked at attentional biases in depression, social anxiety, and comorbid depression and social anxiety. Additionally, I examined differences in different types of threat-relevant stimuli related to social anxiety. I have working experience in eye tracking setup and data analysis, EEG/ERP setup and data analysis, life stress coding, the Trier social stress task, questionnaires assessments, and SPSS. I also have had exposure to the SCID interview, R software, and MATLAB.
I am available to work full-time or part-time. I am able to start the position after mid July, and am flexible with start dates. I am most interested in disorders of affect, especially depression and social anxiety, and the influence of social media on them in the adolescent and young adult population. Additionally, I am a health and wellness minor and am interested in how the health sciences (exercise and nutrition) interact with affect, mood disorders, and neuroplasticity.
