A post-doctoral fellowship position is available in the Emotion and Social Neuroscience Laboratory (ESNL) at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging and MGH Psychiatry Department (Director: Daphne Holt, MD, PhD). The laboratory focuses on the study of emotion and social cognition in healthy individuals and in people affected by or at risk for serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. The research primarily involves the collection and analysis of behavioral/clinical, physiological and neuroimaging data, including functional MRI at high spatial resolution (7T). A current study is examining the columnar organization of the human cortex and how this organization may be altered in those with various forms of psychopathology.
Applicants should have a doctoral degree in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering/Computer Science or a related field. Relevant experience would include neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI), general programming, statistical analysis and computational approaches. Duration is 2-3 years, with a flexible start date. Compensation is commensurate with experience. Interested applicants should send the following information to Dr. Nicole DeTore (firstname.lastname@example.org): a cover letter detailing research interests and goals, a CV, 1-2 writing samples (e.g. prior publications, if available) mainly written by the applicant, and contact information for three references
