Professor BJ Casey is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join her lab. Her lab is in the Department of Neuroscience & Behavior at Barnard College, a premier liberal arts college in Manhattan affiliated with Columbia University. Imaging facilities are available at Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute which is a few blocks away. Research focuses on situational and social influences on self control, changes in basic cognitive and emotional regulation with development, especially during the extended period of adolescence, and their implication for the treatment of young people in law and policy. This individual will have opportunities to publish independent and collaborative work using both original and public access behavioral and imaging data (e.g., ABCD, HBCD, HCP, UK Biobank) and to mentor and teach undergraduates.
