A post-doctoral position is available at the Anticipation, Cognition and
Emotion lab (www.ace.pitt.edu) at the University of Pittsburgh (
http://www.pitt.edu) to work with Dr. Anna Manelis and her team. A
successful candidate will work on the NIMH funded research project that
uses multimodal neuroimaging (fMRI, MRI, DTI and fNIRS) to understand the
contribution of anticipatory processing to cognitive and emotional
dysfunction in individuals with mood disorders.
*Required Qualifications*: a PhD degree in psychology, cognitive
neuroscience, computational neuroscience or a related discipline. A strong
research background in the analysis and interpretation of neuroimaging data
is required. Excellent writing skills are a must. Candidates with a strong
computational background are encouraged to apply. Experience with FSL,
Freesurfer and E-prime is preferred. The ability to program in Shell,
Matlab, Python and/or R is preferred. Experience with fNIRS, graph
modeling and pattern classification analyses is a plus. While prior
experience with clinical populations is not necessary, we expect candidates
to be interested in neuroimaging research of working and episodic memory in
individuals with mood disorders.
*Responsibilities*: A successful candidate will collect and analyze
neuroimaging data, write manuscripts and present at conferences.
This is a 1- to 2-year position that can be extended to 3 years. Start date
is September 2018. If you are interested in this position, please send a
CV, research statement, preprints/reprints of papers, and the names and
