Postdoctoral Neuroimaging Fellowship Position at UCLA
Los Angeles, California, USA
UCLA Semel Institute for
Neuroscience and Human Behavior
Open until filled
Contact Jamie Feusner
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately in the UCLA Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences and the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior to study the neural phenotypes associated with emotion regulation and visual perception in disorders of body image.
Our lab uses functional and structural neuroimaging (task and resting state fMRI, cortical thickness and volumetric analyses, DTI, and EEG) and physiological experiments to understand psychiatric phenotypes (see http://www.semel.ucla.edu/bdd/current-research). The current project involves elucidating how aberrant brain network and connectivity properties relate to visual perceptual distortions and abnormal emotional regulation in body dysmorphic disorder and anorexia nervosa. We are also employing and developing novel multimodal imaging techniques using advanced computational modeling. UCLA has a wealth of neuroimaging (see http://www.brainmapping.org) and clinical resources. You will be joining a productive and collaborative group that utilizes advanced neuroimaging techniques yet is also grounded in a strong clinical understanding of phenomenology of psychiatric populations. The post doc will have the opportunity to take the lead on a project involving functional connectivity and network analysis of emotional regulation, as well as pursue a self-directed project.
To apply: please send a letter of interest, C.V., and a research statement (no longer than 2 pages) that describes your past research experience and future goals, and three letters of reference sent in confidence to Dr. Jamie Feusner: firstname.lastname@example.org
