The Human Memory Lab, directed by Dr. Matthew Grilli, and the Neuroscience of Emotion and Thought Lab, directed by Dr. Jessica Andrews-Hanna, are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join a collaborative and co-supervised NIH-funded project on human aging, Alzheimer’s disease risk, autobiographical thinking, well-being, and brain network analysis at the University of Arizona. A unique feature of this project is the novel application of smartphone applications to track cognition and emotion naturalistically. The postdoctoral fellow will be closely involved in neuroimaging data collection, data pre-processing, and data analysis, including that of resting state functional connectivity. In addition to new data collection, there is ample existing data for immediate analysis. The postdoctoral fellow will have many opportunities to deliver presentations and author publications arising from this project.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience or a related field, with a strong interest in brain network analyses, aging, and/or memory. A solid data analysis and statistical background is also preferred. The position is for 1+ years with a flexible start date, available to start as early as February 2024.
The University of Arizona is located in Tucson, Arizona, a vibrant, eclectic, and affordable city surrounded by four mountain ranges at the heart of the beautiful southwest. At the University of Arizona, we value our inclusive climate because we know that diversity in experiences and perspectives is vital to advancing innovation, critical thinking, solving complex problems, and creating an inclusive academic community. As a Hispanic-serving institution, we translate these values into action by seeking individuals who have experience and expertise working with diverse students, colleagues, and constituencies. Because we seek a workforce with a wide range of perspectives and experiences, we provide equal employment opportunities to applicants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information. As an Employer of National Service, we also welcome alumni of AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other national service programs and others who will help us advance our Inclusive Excellence initiative aimed at creating a university that values student, staff and faculty engagement in addressing issues of diversity and inclusiveness.
