Postdoc on Neuroimaging of Psychopathology Dimensions at Vanderbilt
Nashville, Tennessee, United States
Postdoctoral research position in the Affective Neuroscience Laboratory at Vanderbilt University is currently available. The research project uses fMRI in a twin cohort to explore the heritability of neurobehavioral systems thought to underlie key features of psychopathology. The research is sponsored by NIMH as part of the Research Domain Criteria Initiative. The research fellow will be part of a multi-disciplinary team led by Dr. David Zald, Ph.D. at Vanderbilt, and Dr. Benjamin Lahey at the University of Chicago. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree. The ideal candidate will have experience with both psychopathology research and functional MRI, although candidates with only one of these domains may also be considered if they have substantial experience with statistical methods such as confirmatory factor analysis or structural equation modeling. Successful candidates must have a track record of first-author research papers published in peer-reviewed journals and an ability to work in a multi-disciplinary team. Start date is negotiable. Salary will be based on NIH postdoctoral scale. Applicants should send a cover letter, a CV, and names of three references to David Zald (firstname.lastname@example.org).
