fMRI 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 and Tufts University is offering a two-year NICHD-funded postdoctoral position in Neuroimaging.

We are looking for a postdoc who has strong fMRI analytic skills to work on an exciting multimodal imaging project that examines the neural dynamics of predictive language comprehension in healthy individuals.

A Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or related fields is required. The successful candidate should have a strong background in fMRI with hands-on experience with collecting, analyzing and interpreting fMRI data, and strong technical and programming skills (familiarity with UNIX/LINUX operating systems, and statistical and analytic software MATLAB, SPSS, etc). Experience in the research areas of language processing, semantic and episodic memory or executive function are desirable but not required. The position will offer access to the state-of-the-art multimodal brain imaging facilities at the Martinos Center (see website) as well opportunities for training in other neuroimaging techniques - both MEG as well as ERPs.

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 e-mail: kuperber@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu
