Second Call.

Wanted: Post-doctoral fellow interested in delving into new computational
techniques for fMRI analysis. This position is ideal for students with a
background in neuroimaging who want to strengthen their technical skills in
preparation for a job market that increasingly values advanced analysis
methods, or for students with a background in machine learning who want to
branch into neuroscience.

This Simons Foundation-funded research project will be focused on
developing, evaluating, and deploying state-of-the-art multivariate
connectivity techniques and other modeling approaches. The initial
application will be to a large Autism dataset, and may grow from there
depending on progress. The postdoc will work closely with the PIs: Prof.
Stefano Anzellotti and Prof. Joshua Hartshorne (Department of Psychology,
Boston College). Both PIs run young, small labs, so the post-doc can expect
individualized attention and training.

Boston College is a research university classified as "Very High Research
Activity (R1)" by the Carnegie Classification, and has a bustling
Psychology and Neuroscience department with 19 faculty. Graduate students
and post-docs in the department regularly go on to prestigious academic
appointments (e.g., see https://bit.ly/2PdvK3N). You can learn more about
Drs. Anzellotti and Hartshorne at sccnlab.bc.edu and l3atbc.org,
respectively.

Preferred start date is between June 1 2019 and Jan. 1 2020. Boston College
is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Candidates from backgrounds
underrepresented in psychology/neuroscience are particularly encouraged to
apply. The position is funded for two years and may be renewable beyond the
second year depending on funding. Salary follows the NIH Postdoc scale.
