A cross-disciplinary (psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience) research program in translational neuroscience is set to begin at the University of Pennsylvania that will combine fMRI, TMS, pupillography, and behavior recordings in humans to better understand how non-invasive neuromodulation affects the brain and behavior in circuits relevant to neuropsychiatric illness. The effort is headed by Drs. Yvette Sheline and Michael Platt along with collaborators at Penn (Oathes, Gold, Kable).
To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, a statement describing research interests and relevant background and three letters of recommendations, as well as relevant reprints/preprints of research articles to: Dr. Yvette Sheline, email@example.com.
A strong background in fMRI acquisition and analysis in psychology or psychiatry is required as well as willingness to learn TMS methods and to collaborate across labs.
Must be familiar with computer scripting such as Unix, shell, Matlab, R, Python, etc. and relevant imaging statistics. Additional background in signal processing for psychophysiological data or electrophysiological recordings is a plus.
