Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Psychology: Proyecto de Las Madres Nuevas, Arizona State University, Department of Psychology

Dr. Linda Luecken and Dr. Marisol Perez in the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University (ASU) invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar to join an NIMHD-funded longitudinal project, Las Madres Nuevas (LMN). LMN has been following maternal and child health and development in low-income Mexican-origin families from the prenatal period and is now beginning data collection as the children enter mid-adolescence. The project aims to unravel intricate and dynamic developmental pathways that underlie mental and physical health disparities, as well as interpersonal and cultural protective factors that defy the odds for parents and children in under-resourced environments. The successful candidate will have an interest in understanding how sociocultural and environmental factors across development interact to influence dyadic interactions, obesity and cardiometabolic health, and mental health and well-being.

The initial appointment will be a fiscal year (12-month), full-time, appointment for one year with subsequent annual renewal based upon satisfactory performance and availability of resources. This position is benefits-eligible with no tenure implications.

The anticipated start date is May 31, 2023, but is flexible. Candidates who are non-US citizens will need to be eligible for a J-1 Scholar visa status for the duration of the postdoctoral period. LMN does not support H1B visa status.
