The Learning, Understanding, Memory, & Neurodevelopment Lab (LUMeN Lab, PI: Dr. Alexandra Cohen) in the Department of Psychology at Emory University (Atlanta, GA) is seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow to work on studies examining how motivation and emotion influence learning, memory, and brain function across development. Projects will include analysis of fMRI and ecological momentary assessment data from an NIH-funded study examining neurocognitive mechanisms of reward-motivated memory and behaviors across development.

Candidates must have a PhD in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field by the position start date. The start date is flexible. Fluency with at least one programming language (e.g., Python, R, Matlab) and experience with fMRI are required. Developmental cognitive neuroscience research experience is preferred, but not required.

Application review will take place on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Applications from members of groups underrepresented in science are encouraged.
