Student Admissions

UF Students participating in research at the Center are generally registered either in the Department of Clinical & Health Psychology (CHP) in the School of Public Health and Health Professionals, or in the Department of Psychology, in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and pursue the curriculum, course-work, and evaluations of their Department.

Prospective UF students for 2020 seeking clinical training and a research emphasis on the study of anxiety, mood, and trauma disorders should contact Dr. Peter J. Lang, a mentor of the CHP faculty. Prospective students planning to focus on basic research in psychology should contact Dr. Andreas Keil, a student mentor on the Department of Psychology faculty.

All new students are expected to have a strong STEM background and prior experience in research data analysis.

Post-doctoral Research Fellowship

Clinical Neuroscience of Emotion

A post-doctoral fellowship is available at the University of Florida Center for the Study of Emotion and Attention (CSEA) in a NIMH-funded RDoC research program studying brain imaging and psychophysiological /ERP bio-markers that may discriminate symptom patterns among patients across the full range of fear, anxiety, depression, and trauma disorders. Training in both basic and translational research methods and technology is provided.

Interested applicants should have a Ph.D. degree, and the ideal candidate has previous experience in data acquisition or analysis of fMRI, electrophysiological, or psychophysiological data, together with excellent statistical and programming skills.

To apply, please email a copy of your CV, a brief statement of past research and future goals, and three letters of reference to: CSEA.

Post-baccalaureate Research Training Program

Clinical Neuroscience of Emotion

Research training for post-baccalaureate students is available in a sophisticated, state-of-the-art psychophysiological research laboratory at the Center for the Study of Emotion and Attention (CSEA) at the University of Florida. These studies involve psychophysiological recording in human subjects (electrode placement and measurement of a variety of bio-electric signals, including heart, pupil, skin, brain waves and reflexes) and use multiple computer systems for data collection, scoring, and analysis. Training involves psychophysiological hookup, conducting experimental sessions, entering and reducing data, assisting in all phases of laboratory research with human subjects. Current research studies investigate emotion, anxiety, and fear.
The successful candidate is able to work independently and motivated to learn about bio-behavioral research, with a bachelor's degree in psychology or related field, 308+ GREs (1200+ old), and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher. These research training positions provide an excellent research background for those planning to attend graduate school and pursue a scientific career.

To apply, please send a copy of your CV, a brief statement of research interests and goals, as well as three letters of recommendation to: CSEA
