A new postdoctoral research fellowship is available in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University.
The Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences is now recruiting applicants for a one to two year fellowship who seek to contribute to the field of “Interactional Neuroscience” using hyperscanning techniques (primarily functional near-infrared spectroscopy or “fNIRS”), advanced computational and statistical techniques, and rigorous experimental paradigms. Interactional Neuroscience particularly focuses on obtaining and measuring correlated brain signals from two or more individuals engaged in a variety of structured and naturalistic tasks/activities. Both basic and clinically relevant research areas will be emphasized. Qualified applicants will already have training in one or more of the following areas: psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, bioengineering, computer science and related fields.
The selected postdoctoral fellow will work under the supervision of the program’s principal investigator (Allan L. Reiss, M.D., Professor) who will help to define, enhance and monitor the trainee’s research activities and career trajectory. The postdoctoral fellow will also be offered the opportunity to attend didactic courses and activities (e.g., workshops on research methods and grant writing, journal club and career lunches) to promote professional development.
The PI has an outstanding success rate for training postdoctoral fellows who go on to become highly productive independent researchers. Creative, energetic and dedicated candidates are particularly encouraged to apply, as are candidates from backgrounds typically underrepresented in higher education.
The application deadline is ongoing. Applicants will have a PhD and/or MD (which must be completed at the time training begins). Applicants who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents may be eligible for funding from a NIMH T32 award. Commitment to the goals of the content area and strong academic and research credentials are important criteria used in the selection process. For additional information on application procedures, please contact Ms. Reiko Riley (firstname.lastname@example.org).

About Center for Interdiscplinary Brain Sciences Research - Stanford University
The Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR) at the Stanford University School of Medicine is dedicated to research that will improve the lives and well-being of individuals with disorders of the brain and improve knowledge of healthy brain and behavioral development. CIBSR research staff are dedicated to identifying biological and environmental risk factors, understanding disease pathophysiology and developmental outcomes, and developing new treatments for neurodevelopmental, neurogenetic and neuropsychiatric disorders of childhood onset. Our research studies are truly multi/interdisciplinary as they bring together experts from the fields of psychiatry, neurology, psychology, computer science, biostatistics and genetics to explore and seek answers for complex questions related to brain-behavior relationships.
