Lab Opportunities

The lab is accepting graduate students for Fall 2022.

We are hiring a POSTDOC position – see below for detail.

Currently, we do not have openings for undergraduate students in the lab. Please check back.


We are hiring a postdoctoral researcher position. The researcher will contribute to an ongoing NIMH-funded R01 grant examining longitudinal change in brain networks that contribute to anxiety development during early adolescence, with a focus on pubertal hormones.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in programming and MRI analysis, along with an interest in adolescent development, emotion/motivation, and/or anxiety, although all applications are encouraged. Clinical training or experience with network analysis methods are not required, but would be considered an asset. Applications from any area of Psychology/Neuroscience are encouraged, although previous experience with human MRI is necessary.

The primary duties of the postdoctoral researcher will be to analyze MRI data and write manuscripts for publication. In addition, the researcher will have the opportunity to learn and apply cutting-edge network-analysis methods (e.g., graph theory) to understand the network basis for anxiety. The position would last for a two-year period with potential for renewal.

If you are interested in being considered for the position, please send a current CV, a brief statement of interest that outlines your qualifications for the position, reprints of selected papers, and the names of three professional references to Dr. Jeffrey Spielberg at
