PostDoc in concurrent EEG/fMRI functional/anatomical connectivity of attention control
We would like to announce a concurrent EEG-fMRI, post-doctoral researcher opening at Jane & Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Behavior at University of California Los Angeles, with focus on functional and anatomical connectivity of attention control. The position is part of a broader multimodal neuroimaging project on attention and working memory deficits in ADHD conducted at UCLA’s world-class Staglin One Mind Center for Cognitive Neuroscience.
Duties & Responsibilities
• Perform MRI analyses of activity & functional connectivity in task-related and resting state data, as well as of structural connectivity in DTI data
• Independently acquire concurrent EEG-fMRI data
• Develop manuscripts and presentations for the dissemination of research
• Ph.D. in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, biomedical/electrical engineering or a related field
• Strong analytical skillset and proficiency with one or more major neuroimaging software tools (FSL, Freesurfer, SPM, AFNI etc.). Comfort with Matlab, R, Python or other programming languages is a plus.
• Familiarity with Unix/Linux environment and comfort working in diverse computing environments including high-performance computing clusters
Excellent communication skills, initiative, problem solving, and attention to detail are imperative. The position offers a vibrant working environment, as well as ample opportunity to participate in collaborative and independent research.
