A new post-doctoral position for computational modeling of cost/benefit decision-making in mood and anxiety disorders is available in the Translational Research in Affective Disorders Laboratory (TReADLab) in the Department of Psychology at Emory University. Located in the heart of Atlanta, GA, the Department of Psychology at Emory provides an outstanding environment in which to pursue post-doctoral training in clinical neuroscience. Full salary and benefits in accordance with NIMH post-doctoral salary guidelines are guaranteed for at least two years.
Responsibilities: Desirable candidates will develop and pursue novel research questions within the lab’s general area. Responsibilities will include designing/programming experiments, recruiting/running participants, developing and using computational modeling approaches (Bayesian, RL, neural networks) to analyze behavioral and neuroimaging data, presenting data at national and international meetings, and preparing manuscripts for publication. Candidates will be strongly encouraged to apply for extramural funding during the post-doctoral period and will be supported in these efforts.
Necessary skills/qualifications: A doctoral degree and promising publication record in cognitive science, neuroscience, computer science, psychology, or related field. Strong functional neuroimaging background and/or computer programming skills (e.g. MATLAB and/or Python) are required. Should be self-motivated, independent, and reliable. Research experience in affective, clinical, or cognitive neuroscience (e.g., conducting and analyzing fMRI or MRI studies), will all be viewed positively, but are not required.
Additional information about current studies can be found at www.treadlab.org. Applications will be reviewed continuously until the position is filled. Start date is flexible depending on candidate availability.
