Postdoctoral Fellowship, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, Stanford University

Stanford University’s Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences is seeking to hire full time post-doctoral fellows for their Cognitive & Systems Neuroscience Laboratory. This lab is headed by Dr. Vinod Menon who has broad multidisciplinary expertise that spans several scientific disciplines and has published extensively on various aspects of human cognition and brain function. 

Explore the lab website for more information: http://med.stanford.edu/scsnl.html

The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory seeks candidates with strong research backgrounds to work on NIH-funded projects combining multimodal brain imaging (fMRI, MRI, DTI) with cognitive modeling and advanced computational brain network analyses in one or more of the following areas: learning and memory, numerical cognition and reading, cognitive training, and brain network development. Populations of interest include typically developing children and adults, children with learning disabilities, and individuals with autism. The successful candidate will develop a vigorous research program that contributes to, and complements, ongoing research studies of typical and atypical neurocognitive development. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities and computational resources at Stanford University. Candidates must have a PhD and research experience in cognitive neuroscience, brain development, cognitive science, psychology, or related fields. Strong computational skills and expertise in fMRI data analysis are highly desirable. Please email a CV, statement of research interests, relevant background, list of publications, and names of three referees to Drs. Vinod Menon and Aarthi Padmanabhan at scsnl.stanford+postdoc@gmail.com

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN COMPUTATIONAL MODELING OF BRAIN NETWORKS 

Currently Available: The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory invites applications for a postdoctoralfellowship in computational modeling of human brain imaging data using deep neural networks. The successful candidate will be involved in a multidisciplinary project that seeks to develop novel computational frameworks for robust identification of neurobiological signatures of psychiatric and neurological disorders combining deep learning and convolution networks and dynamic brain circuit analyses with task and resting-state fMRI. Clinical disorders currently under investigation include autism, ADHD, anxiety and mood disorders, learning disabilities, schizophrenia, and Parkinson’s disease. We seek talented and highly-motivated individuals with a strong background in at least one of these areas: deep learning algorithms and optimization (theory and practical implementations); computational modeling, statistical inference, and machine learning, especially as applied to fMRI and MRI data. The candidate will have access to multiple large datasets and state-of-the-art computational resources, including HPCs and GPGPUs. Please email a CV, statement of research interests and relevant background, and have three letters of reference sent to Drs. Vinod Menon and Aarthi Padmanabhan at scsnl.stanford+postdoc@gmail.com
