The Families, Affective Neuroscience, and Mood Disorders Lab (PIs Drs. Katie Burkhouse, Jennifer Suor, and Cope Feurer) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), Department of Psychiatry, is seeking a Benefits-Eligible Full-time Academic Research Associate. Our lab seeks to identify socio-contextual processes and behavioral-brain markers, and their interplay, in predicting risk for child and adolescent depression. By combining multiple units of analysis, [i.e., behavioral, electroencephalography (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG)], we explore different affective, cognitive, physiological, and behavioral mechanisms involved in the development and prevention of depression in youth, and in the transmission of depression from parents to their offspring. This position also involves assisting with participant recruitment, conducting diagnostic interviews (structured clinical interviews for children and adults), running lab experiments (EEG, ECG, behavioral tasks), and assisting with data management and preprocessing.
