- PhD in Neuroscience or related field
- Prior research experience in electrophysiology and/or MRI
- Advanced data analysis skills
- Animal behavior experience
This is a funded postdoctoral training position working across multiple laboratories (Chafee, Zimmermann, Hayden, Heilbronner) conducting nonhuman animal research. Broadly speaking, we are interested in translational studies of cognitive control and decision-making systems, and the disruption of these systems in neuropsychiatric disease. The experiments involve state-of-the-art, ultra-high-field nonhuman primate neuroimaging (resting state fMRI and diffusion-weighted MRI) as well as large scale electrode array neural recording in distributed brain networks. We are seeking a postdoctoral associate to assume primary responsibility for conducting a subset of these experiments, analyzing the data, and writing manuscripts. Prior experience with neuroimaging or electrophysiology is strongly preferred, but we do not expect that candidates will have both. There will also be some animal behavior and husbandry involved, as well as general laboratory duties. Because the successful candidate will be responsible for these procedures across multiple collaborating laboratories, someone highly organized and able to work effectively with teams will perform well.
45% Data collection of neuroimaging, behavior, and/or neurophysiology data
45% Data analysis and writing of manuscripts
10% General lab duties (animal training, surgeries, etc.
