Shackman lab is taking graduate students for Fall 2016

Dr. Shackman is currently accepting graduate school applications via the clinical area group in the Department of Psychology and the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) graduate program. Graduate students will actively contribute to our overall lab mission to have a deep impact on the fields of affective and translational neuroscience. To that end, we do our best to perform innovative studies that can lead to important discoveries, to disseminate our discoveries as widely as possible, and to mentor trainees to become top-notch scientists. Most of our research is focused on identifying the mechanisms that link elevated levels of dispositional anxiety to the development of psychopathology, including the identification of novel brain-based biomarkers and transdiagnostic endophenotypes. Our lab is always looking for people who are smart, productive, sensible, passionate, rigorous, fearless in the face of set-backs, hardworking, blessed with a creative vision, and fun! The lab provides an excellent opportunity for receiving top-notch mentorship in affective/translational neuroscience. My goal is to ensure that trainees are happy and cultivate the range of skills necessary to secure post-doctoral positions in top-tier labs.
