Currently Available: The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in developmental cognitive neuroscience. We seek candidates with strong research backgrounds to work on NIH-funded projects combining multimodal brain imaging (fMRI, MRI, DTI) with cognitive modeling and advanced computational brain network analyses in one or more of the following areas: learning and memory, numerical cognition and reading, cognitive training, and brain network development. Populations of interest include typically developing children and adults, children with learning disabilities, and individuals with autism. The successful candidate will develop a vigorous research program that contributes to, and complements, ongoing research studies of typical and atypical neurocognitive development. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities and computational resources at Stanford University. Candidates must have a PhD and research experience in cognitive neuroscience, brain development, cognitive science, psychology, or related fields. Strong computational skills and expertise in fMRI data analysis are highly desirable. Please email a CV, statement of research interests, relevant background, list of publications, and have three letters of reference sent to Drs. Vinod Menon and Aarthi Padmanabhan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vinod Menon is a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and of Neuroscience, and Director of the Stanford Cognitive & Systems Neuroscience Laboratory in the Stanford University School of Medicine. He has broad multidisciplinary expertise that spans several scientific disciplines and has published extensively on various aspects of human cognition and brain function. He is especially intere...sted in the development, maturation and organization of functional networks in the human brain, and its impact on cognition and behavior.
