Post-Doc in Social Psychology at Ohio State
Ohio State University
Post-doctoral Position
$40,000 - $49,999

The Subjective Perspectives Research Lab at The Ohio State University will be accepting applications for a 1-2 year postdoctoral fellow position beginning Fall 2018 and funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (

The funded project is led by Lisa Libby at Ohio State in collaboration with Richard Eibach at University of Waterloo, and explores the interface of visual imagery and social psychological processes. The grant research extends an emerging theoretical model to test novel predictions about how visual perspective in imagery relates to cognitive processing and thereby emotion, self-insight, and judgment, with implications for emotion regulation, interpersonal relationships, and prejudice reduction.

We seek a postdoc with expertise in any area overlapping this wide reaching project, including but not limited to social cognition, judgment and decision making, goals and motivational processes, stereotyping and prejudice, self and identity, relationships, or attitudes. We are especially interested in applicants with expertise in emotion and/or psychophysiology that would contribute to establishing the unique implications of this research program for emotion regulation and coping. The ideal candidate will have a strong record of empirical research, quantitative skills, and conceptual and theoretical rigor. A PhD in psychology or related field by August 2018 is required for this position.

As well as collaborating with the PIs and other lab members on the grant-funded project, the postdoc would have the opportunity to conduct other research including ongoing work and collaborations with other faculty members at OSU. The OSU social area, psychology department, and university offer many additional opportunities, including area brownbag meetings (;, colloquium series (, career development services (, and membership in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (
