Apply for a postdoctoral fellowship to join the Resilient Families and Youth lab and the Project Paths team in the Department of Psychology at Georgia State University. The fellow will work collaboratively and independently on the coordination of a multi-site, multi-method, longitudinal study funded by the National Science Foundation (PI: Ciara Smalls Glover, Ph.D.),

Project Paths: Persisting, Achieving, and Thriving in STEM.
The primary aim of Project Paths is to investigate how adversity across ecological contexts is associated with the development of minoritized college students. Contexts of interest include but are not limited to, childhood adversity history, racism, socioeconomic background, family
burden, and instructional and institutional support. The project examines the intersection of ecological contexts over time on the development of STEM motivation, student persistence, and
positive development. There will also be opportunities to receive mentorship in developing proposals for grant funding. The fellow will have advanced training working with a team with interdisciplinary and multi-method expertise.
