Dr. Naomi Sadeh is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher with expertise in clinical neuroscience at the University of Delaware. The researcher will contribute to an ongoing NIMH-funded R01 grant examining brain networks associated with impulsive and risky behaviors in adults with externalizing disorders.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in neuroimaging analysis and programming, along with an interest in impulsivity, self-regulation, and/or externalizing psychopathology (e.g., antisocial personality disorder, alcohol/substance use disorders), although all applications are welcome. Clinical training is not required, but would be considered an asset. Applications from any area of Psychology are encouraged, especially from individuals who have an interest in externalizing disorders.
The primary duties of the postdoctoral researcher will be to analyze MRI data and write manuscripts for publication. In addition, the researcher will have the opportunity to learn and apply cutting-edge network-analysis methods (e.g., graph theory) to understand the connectomic basis for externalizing pathology. The anticipated start date is Spring or Summer 2020 (with flexibility) and would last for a two-year period with potential for renewal.
