We are looking for a postdoctoral associate with a strong aptitude for (and interest in) real-time fMRI neurofeedback and functional neuroimaging data analysis. The primary project will be a study of real-time fMRI neurofeedback in patients with PTSD.
The successful candidate will have the option to participate in a wide range of other functional neuroimaging projects and to analyze existing data sets. This is a position with dual mentorship: Dr. Michelle Hampson (Dept. of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging) will provide mentorship in neuroimaging and Dr. Ilan Harpaz-Rotem (Dept. of Psychiatry) will provide mentorship in PTSD and psychiatric research.
The position provides a great opportunity for training in both resting state functional connectivity analyses and real-time fMRI, as well as some of the more conventional functional imaging approaches.
Familiarity with real-time fMRI neurofeedback or functional neuroimaging data analysis, a programming background, and experience with Linux are all assets, but not required. Critically, the candidate must have strong analytical/computational skills and be interested in human functional brain imaging.
A Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, biomedical engineering, or a related field is required. The successful candidate will be expected to design and conduct complex analyses of functional neuroimaging data, to prepare manuscripts for publication, and to present the results at scientific meetings.
Applicants should forward a CV, contact information for 3 references, and a statement of research interests to Michelle Hampson (firstname.lastname@example.org). The ideal start date is January 1, 2019, but there is substantial flexibility with the start date. Salary will be based on the standard NIH pay scale.
