The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW IN NEUROIMAGING AND AFFECTIVE-COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE
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.
- Profound experience in statistical analysis and data-driven computational approaches.
- High level experience with functional magnetic resonance imaging, including analysis of activation and of connectivity.
- Familiarity in how to implement multivariate computational models for integrating neuroimaging data with behavioral and self-report data.
- A demonstrated capacity to drive first author publications.
- 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.
- The capacity to interpret the clinical relevance of human neuroscience results.
- We also require an ability to work collaboratively and self-motivation.
The position is open until filled.

VA Boston Healthcare System
Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Women's Mental Health
The VA Boston Healthcare System is accepting applications for a two-year research fellowship in women’s mental health to begin September 2017. The primary objective of this training program is to produce clinical researchers who are qualified to function as independent clinician investigators in women’s mental health, with a particular focus on the scientific study of stress, trauma, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The fellowship represents one track within an interdisciplinary Advanced Fellowship in Women’s Health, is closely affiliated with the Boston University School of Medicine and is housed within the Women’s Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD (WHSD-NCPTSD). These facilities offer outstanding resources that include didactic training, technical support personnel, well-equipped psychophysiology and cognitive research laboratories, advanced computing facilities and a broad range of professional expertise. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects conducted by program faculty, initiate independent research projects, conduct secondary analyses on existing data sets, prepare applications to federal and other funding agencies for research support, and provide direct clinical services to patients under the guidance of a clinical supervisor. Fellowship graduates should have the potential to be role models in leading, developing, conducting, and evaluating innovative research, education, and clinical care in health issues pertaining to women veterans.
First consideration will be given to applications received by January 1, 2017. Graduate training in clinical or counseling psychology is preferred, but applications are welcome from candidates in related fields. Applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree prior to starting the program. Candidates from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. The salary and benefits package is competitive. More information about WHSD-NCPTSD faculty and research interests can be found at http://www.ptsd.va.gov/about/divisions/womens-health/index.asp.
Applications should include a cover letter summarizing professional interests and goals, and a curriculum vita. Three letters of reference should be sent directly from letter writers. Applications should be submitted via e-mail to Amy Street, Ph.D., Women’s Health Fellowship Director, National Center for PTSD, VA Boston Healthcare System. The VA Boston Healthcare System is an equal opportunity employer.
