We are seeking two postdoctoral scholars. The postdocs will manage and execute large-scale neuroimaging projects investigating the neurobiological mechanisms underlying: (1) language, literacy and cognition in generally healthy young adults using multimodal neuroimaging techniques such as MRI, MRS and TMS (“Perturbation Postdoc”); and (2) intergenerational transmission of language and literacy in parent-offspring dyads using MRI techniques (“Intergenerational Postdoc”). In addition, the successful candidates will have the opportunity to be involved in other federally and non-federally funded-research projects in the laboratories, gain experience in grant and manuscript writing and large-scale project management, outreach and community engagement projects, and access to a wealth of archival developmental and longitudinal neuroimaging data on language and literacy.

Required qualifications:

  • PhD or equivalent in cognitive and systems neurosciences, computer science, engineering, psychology or a closely related field
  • Computational skills, including knowledge of at least one programming language and Unix commands
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Leadership and organizational skills
Preferred qualifications:
  • Exceptional skills in collecting and analyzing MRI, MRS, and/or TMS data
  • Experience in M/EEG
  • Documented history of productivity and leadership
  • Advanced knowledge and expertise in statistics, e.g. multivariate statistics, behavioral genetics, Bayesian and Monte Carlo methods
Interested candidates should email with "[Postdoc Job (YOUR FULL NAME)]" in the subject line. In the email they should include (a) a current CV, (b) a one-page cover letter describing qualifications, interest, career goals and which postdoc position they are interested in (refer to as “Perturbation Postdoc/Project” or “Intergenerational Postdoc/Project”), and (c) a list of 3 potential referees with their contact information. The position can begin immediately.

Postdoctoral scholars from the lab have gone onto a range of research faculty and imaging director positions at institutions such as Stanford, Caltech, Boston College, and University of Texas.
