Postdoctoral Associate Position in Translational Neuroimaging
with emphasis on Decision Neuroscience and/or Psychiatric Neuroscience

Applications are invited for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Pearl Chiu (http://people.vtc.vt.edu/~chiup/) at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (http://research.vtc.vt.edu/).  Projects in the lab use fMRI to examine the neurobiology of motivated behavior and social influences on decision-making with methods adapted from experimental economics, behavioral & computational neuroscience, genetics, and psychology. We also have a strong interest in developing quantitative data-driven methods for assessment and diagnosis of psychiatric illness.  For candidates interested in psychiatric neuroscience, the lab provides plentiful opportunities to examine how neural anomalies may be quantified and rehabilitated in conditions including depression, substance dependence, and post-traumatic stress.

The lab is located in the newly established Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute in Roanoke, VA, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The VTCRI provides full access to outstanding infrastructure, including three research-dedicated Siemens 3T Trio scanners and a high-throughput computing cluster.  The successful candidate will play a lead role in highly collaborative multidisciplinary scientific efforts among the VTC School of Medicine and Research Institute, the Carilion Healthcare System, and departments across Virginia Tech.

Minimum requirements for the position include: 1) a PhD in cognitive or computational neuroscience, engineering, psychology, experimental economics, or a related field; 2) facility with signal processing or computational/quantitative methods; and 3) demonstrated potential for excellence.  Please forward a statement of interest, CV, and three letters of recommendation.

Consideration of applications will begin immediately and will end when the positions are filled. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.  Virginia Tech Carilion is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and is committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
