The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University

POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW IN NEUROIMAGING AND AFFECTIVE-COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE

JOB DESCRIPTION

A postdoctoral position is available for a qualified and creative scientist with training suited to analysis of big datasets of functional neuroimaging data. These datasets also include behavioral, VR and momentary sampling data acquired on the same human subjects. Specific experience in high level functional neuroimaging data analysis is essential. Because of the scope of the project an interest and capacity for connecting neuroimaging data to other measures of brain function and behavior is also important. Because this integrative approach is applied within a study assessing depression and weight management outcomes, experience with clinical populations is also desirable.

This position would have the opportunity to jump immediately into data analysis and publication, and in parallel be part of an ongoing study. The study is funded under the NIH Science of Behavior Change priority initiative. In this study we have already completed acquisition baseline neuroimaging data. Repeat scans, and associated behavioral and VR measures.

Our scientific goals are both basic and applied. We want to use data-driven approaches to identifying subgroups of people based on their profiles of brain activation and connectivity. We focus in particular on intrinsic brain networks such as the default mode, as well as task-evoked networks implicated in emotion regulation and cognitive control. We also seek to understand which of these networks, and subgroups defined by network profiles, relate to which aspects of behavior in self-report, cognitive-emotional testing, VR and passive sampling settings. Our precision health question is to understand whether and how changes in brain networks predict changes in behavior over time, focusing on mood and weight management outcomes. We will use this information to tailor future interventions for depression and accompanying weight management.  This study is a two-phase project funded through the NIH Common Fund’s Science of Behavior Change roadmap initiative. The position will be based at Stanford, within the William’s Panlab.

REQUIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience/neuroimaging or related fields. 

  1. Profound experience in statistical analysis and data-driven computational approaches.
  2. High level experience with functional magnetic resonance imaging, including analysis of activation and of connectivity. 
  3. Familiarity in how to implement multivariate computational models for integrating neuroimaging data with behavioral and self-report data.
  4. A demonstrated capacity to drive first author publications.
  5. A clear interest and motivation to pursue research in neuroimaging relevant to precision mental health and innovative ways to think about the science of behavior change.
  6. The capacity to interpret the clinical relevance of human neuroscience results.
  7. We also require an ability to work collaboratively and self-motivation.

APPLICATIONS

For more information contact radproject@stanford.edu. Send applications with a cover letter addressing requirements, a resume and at least three referees toradproject@stanford.edu.

The position is open until filled.
