Postdoctoral Position at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Harvard Medical School

START DATE: Spring 2016. The NeuroCognition Lab at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging is offering a two-year NICHD-funded postdoctoral position in Multimodal Neuroimaging. The position involves working on an exciting multimodal imaging project that examines the neural dynamics of semantic processing in healthy individuals using fMRI MEG and ERPs. Close collaborators include Dr.s Gina Kuperberg and Matti Hamalainen.

A Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or related fields is required. The successful candidate should have very strong technical and programming skills (familiarity with UNIX/LINUX operating systems, and statistical and analytic software MATLAB, SPSS, etc), and hands-on experience with collecting, analyzing and interpreting fMRI data. He/she should also be interested in learning how fMRI methods can be integrated with EEG and MEG methods. Experience in the research areas of language processing, semantic and episodic memory, executive function and/or the cognitive neuroscience of schizophrenia are desirable but not required. Candidates will have access to the state-of-the-art multimodal brain imaging facilities at the Martinos Center (see website) and will have an exciting opportunity for training in multiple neuroimaging techniques, as well as how to apply basic cognitive neuroscience methods to asking important questions in patient populations.

Massachusetts General Hospital is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Full-time employees receive full benefits. Please send (1) a curriculum vitae (2) a cover letter and statement of research experience, achievements and interests (3) pdfs of papers published or submitted to: Gina Kuperberg, M.D., Ph.D. by email: kuperber@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu or FAX: 617 812 4799
