- The Mind Research Network (MRN)
A postdoctoral fellowship position is available at The Mind Research Network in the laboratory of Dr. Eric Claus. The candidate will work on a project that is examining neural mechanisms of behavior change in alcohol use disorders using longitudinal neuroimaging (MRI/fMRI, MEG).
Primary responsibilities of this position include implementation of longitudinal analyses, machine learning for outcome prediction, and integration of multimodal neuroimaging data. Candidates will be expected to contribute to ongoing data analyses and will have opportunities to lead manuscripts and grant applications. Because of the collaborative nature of this project, the candidate will also have opportunities to work with other investigators at MRN and the University of New Mexico (including Drs. Katie Witkiewitz, Jon Houck, and Barbara McCrady).
Requires a PhD in a related discipline (e.g., neuroscience, psychology, statistics, electrical engineering, computer science) and experience conducting neuroimaging analyses.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated effectiveness and experience working as part of a large research team, as well as success performing independent research projects of varying scope. This position requires superior professional-level verbal and written communication skills which are required to effectively perform in the role, as well as excellent judgment, and problem-solving and decision-making skills.
Experience using R/python and major neuroimaging packages (FSL, SPM, AFNI) is preferred. Prior experience with longitudinal modeling is preferred, but not required.
The Mind Research Network is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and brain injury.
Headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, MRN consists of an interdisciplinary association of scientists located at universities, national laboratories and research centers around the world and is focused on imaging technology and its emergence as an integral element of neuroscience investigation.
With an extended community of academicians, researchers, graduate students and technicians, the MRN is uniquely positioned with its national infrastructure to link the brightest minds in neuroscience with some of the most cutting-edge neuroimaging capabilities in the world today.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
