Postdoctoral Position in Neuroimaging
Charlestown, Massachusetts, USA
Harvard Medical School/
Massachusetts General Hospital
Contact Eve Valera
A full-time, NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship position is available at Harvard Medical School / Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) for studies examining the role of corticocerebellar pathophysiology in adult ADHD under the direction of Dr. Eve Valera.
Studies will use neuroimaging (i.e., functional - including task-based and resting state functional connectivity, structural, and diffusion tensor imaging) along with behavioral testing to examine how corticocerebellar circuitry influences perceptual and motor timing abnormalities in ADHD adults. The fellow will be involved in all aspects of the projects including data collection, analysis, and manuscript writing, and will interact with faculty co-investigators on the project including Drs. Randy Buckner and Jeremy Schmahmann. Fellows will also be encouraged to initiate and carry out their own relevant projects and also have the possibility to participate in other lab projects involving brain injury and trauma.
Applicants should have one or more of the following skills/experiences: 1) strong experience with functional imaging analysis, preferably using SPM; 2) programming and strong statistical analysis experience; 3) knowledge and interest in the structure and function of the cerebellum and cerebro-cerebellar neurocircuitry; 4) knowledge and experience with the neurobiology of perceptual and motor timing mechanisms; 5) strong clinical and research experience with ADHD populations. Oral and written English communication skills are required.
Work will take place at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center at MGH. The Center is a vibrant community of approximately 120 faculty members and over 100 postdoctoral research fellows and graduate students studying a range of neuroscientific topics.
