Postdoctoral position, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Indiana University
The Social Brain Lab at Indiana University, directed by Dr. Dan Kennedy, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher for an NIH-funded research project. The lab investigates the neural and cognitive mechanisms underlying human social functioning, and how these mechanisms break down in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Methods include functional neuroimaging (with an emphasis on functional connectivity), eye tracking, and behavioral experiments.
We are looking for someone with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, computer science, mathematics, statistics, or a related area. The ideal candidate would have a strong quantitative background, previous training in social or cognitive neuroscience, and an interest in psychopathology and ASD. Experience with MATLAB and familiarity with neuroimaging analysis software (e.g., FSL, SPM, AFNI, Freesurfer, ANTs) and advanced analysis methods (e.g., graph theory, functional connectivity, multivariate analyses) is preferred. Applicants must have good organizational skills, and enjoy working in a collaborative environment.
The position is available immediately, but the start date can be flexible. We will begin reviewing applications immediately, and will continue reviewing them on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Salary is commensurate with experience, and includes health benefits.
To apply, please email your application to Dan Kennedy (dpk AT indiana.edu). Please include a coverletter (with a proposed start date), your CV, 3 representative publications, and contact information for three references (or letters).
