Prospective graduate students: Dr.  Thompson will be accepting applications for graduate students for the next application cycle (i.e., for the 2023-2024 academic year).  

Postdoctoral Researcher (full-time): We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral research associate with interests in the cognitive neuroscience of aging to work on a NIH-funded R01 project (R01AG070139) at Washington University in St. Louis, in a collaboration that includes Drs. Todd Braver, Tammy English, Brian Gordon, and Renee Thompson. The project focuses on the relationship between cognitive motivation and emotion regulation, how these change across middle- and older-age, and the impact of depressive psychopathology, utilizing a multi-method approach that combines fMRI neuroimaging with both peripheral physiological assessment and naturalistic experience sampling. A recently funded Supplement to the project provides the exciting opportunity to acquire and analyze state-of-the-art blood-based biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease in all participants. This position will provide outstanding training experiences in a wide-range of theoretical and methodological approaches within the cognitive neuroscience of aging, and the opportunity to enhance professional development skills by working with an inter-disciplinary collaborative team.
