The Department of Population Health at NYU Langone Health is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow with expertise in developmental science to work with Dr. Clancy Blair, Bezos Family Foundation Professor of Population Health, on a research project examining the development of self-regulation in children in predominantly low-income, non-urban communities in the US. The position entails working with a research team and assisting with the management, analysis, and preparation for publication of data collected in a large, federally-funded longitudinal study.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate strong skills in generating and testing hypotheses regarding biological and social influences on development from birth through early adolescence. The position entails a leadership role in authorship of research manuscripts, posing and testing key questions and conducting quantitative analyses using a range of analytic approaches, such as mixed linear modeling, latent growth modeling, and econometric approaches. The position may also involve opportunities for the design and implementation of research protocols for planned new data collection.
