Postdocs recruited for NASA-funded study of stress in high achievers
We are seeking graduate and post-graduate Science, Engineering, Education, and Training
(STEM) trainees for a research study that examines the relationship between personality,
brain functioning, and stress. The study involves a 2 hour in-person visit to Stony
Brook University campus for a self-report,biological, and behavioral assessment. Then,
you will be asked to complete monthly 30-minute web-based follow-ups over the next
5 months. The research is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA), and your participation may help NASA improve selection of astronaut candidates for
successful long-duration space flight (i.e., travel to Mars). You can earn up to $100
for your participation.
