The Laboratory of Amit Etkin, MD PhD at Stanford Universityis currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship focused on understanding and modulating the neural systems underlying cognitive and emotional control in both healthy individuals and patients with a range of psychiatric conditions. Special emphasis is put on use of causal circuit manipulation tools (eg TMS and concurrent TMS and fMRI) as well as a range of cognitive neuroscience paradigms at the behavioral, physiological and neural levels.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurophysiology, Psychology, Computer Science, Statistics or related fields. Experience with analysis of fMRI data and/or TMS is required. Additional experience with psychophysiology or programming is a plus. A US Citizenship is also required. Duties will also include manuscript preparation, presentation of findings at conferences, management of research assistants and contribution to the preparation of grants. Laboratory and Stanford resources include research-dedicated 3T and 7T MRI scanners, concurrent TMS/fMRI setups and concurrent TMS/EEG setups. Salary commensurate with experience.
