Current Openings

Post-doctoral Fellows

Although there are currently no open positions in the Laboratory for Affective and Translational Neuroscience for post-doctoral fellows, we always welcome applications from talented young scientists who have a specific interest in our work. The laboratory, directed by Diego A. Pizzagalli, Ph.D., is part of the Center for Depression, Anxiety and Stress Research (CDASR), a vibrant research center that embraces a multi-disciplinary approach (e.g., brain imaging, electrophysiology, clinical engagement, treatment efficacy) to improve our understanding of the psychological, environmental, and neurobiological factors associated with depression, anxiety and related disorders across the lifespan.

To apply, send a CV and a letter describing your research interests to David Crowley (
