Job Summary

The Research on Affective Disorders and Development (RADD) laboratory is seeking applications for a Postdoc position. We are a research group dedicated to understanding and improving emotional health in adolescence and across the lifespan. Our research and clinical work are centered on discovering how neurocognitive functioning is disrupted in depression and related experiences, identifying markers of depression risk and treatment response, and understanding how neurocognitive functioning may be enhanced to foster emotional health. The RADD Lab is directed by Dr. Roselinde Kaiser, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and Institute of Cognitive Science, CU Boulder. For more information about our members, studies, and clinical work, please explore our website and contact us:

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Who We Are

The RADD lab is working to understand neurocognitive dysfunction in depression, including abnormalities in the structure, molecular signaling, and coordinated activity of brain networks involved in cognitive regulation and learning. We explore these topics from a developmental perspective, with a special interest in using neurocognitive risk markers to predict the onset and course of depression or bipolar disorders in teens or young adults. Clinically, we are testing how neurocognitive functioning may be enhanced to foster mood health, with the goal of translating basic science into improved treatment and emotional wellness.

The RADD lab is affiliated with both the Institute of Cognitive Science and the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at CU Boulder.

The mission of the Institute of Cognitive Science (ICS) at CU-Boulder is to understand and enhance human cognition, learning, and development through the creation of interdisciplinary partnerships. ICS fosters rich scientific interchange across researchers from a broad range of fields including Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics, Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Philosophy, and Education.

The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience: Through teaching, learning, research, and community outreach, we seek to promote scholarship at the intersection of psychology and neuroscience. Driving this mission is a deep, shared commitment to improving the human condition for all people.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

  • Lead postdoctoral researcher on a longitudinal study that investigates biomarkers of risk and resilience to mood disorders in adolescence.
  • This study is centered on the intersection of cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology, and developmental psychology; and the integration of behavioral, neuroimaging (fMRI, MRS) and in vivo assessment. Responsibilities include participation in an active research team engaged in multi-modal data collection; data management and analysis; manuscript preparation; and study-related administration.
  • There are opportunities for preparing grant proposals and collaboration on complementary studies in youth with current mood disorders, and in youth and adults engaged in intervention.
