The laboratories of Scott Murray and Raphael Bernier at the University of Washington in Seattle are seeking a postdoctoral fellow. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team of researchers as part of a project focused on the neural and computational basis of autism spectrum disorder. The successful candidate will play a leadership role on NIMH funded MRI and EEG studies exploring neural activity in ASD.
For applicants with imaging expertise who have clinical degrees, supervision toward licensure is also available. The highly collaborative Murray and Bernier labs are staffed by a multidisciplinary team of researchers and clinicians and are housed in the Departments of Psychology (Murray) and Psychiatry (Bernier). The labs are affiliated with the Center on Human Development and Disability, an outstanding institutional resource offering an array of research, clinical services, training, outreach, and dissemination activities through its dual designation as a Eunice Kennedy Shriver Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) and a University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD).
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, or related fields and any clinical applicants must have completed an APA-accredited clinical psychology internship. Previous experience in areas such as vision science, cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, clinical psychology, and/or psychiatry is essential. Experience in data collection specifically in autism spectrum disorders is recommended. Important skills include programming (Matlab or Python), data analysis, experiment design, EEG, and/or fMRI.
To apply, send a letter of interest, current curriculum vitae, and list of three references to: Scott Murray, PhD, at email@example.com. Informal inquiries may be addressed to Dr. Murray at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Bernier at email@example.com.
