A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Kristina Simonyan in the Department of Neurology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York. The research emphases of the laboratory are on the studies of brain mechanisms of voice and speech production and the neurological correlates of primary focal dystonias (e.g., spasmodic dysphonia) using a multi-modal neuroimaging approach (fMRI, DTI, high-resolution MRI, PET).

The ideal candidate will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. in neuroscience or a relevant field and knowledge of computational (especially Linux, MATLAB) and statistical (AFNI, FSL) methods. Familiarity with connectivity analysis and neuroreceptor mapping is preferred.

Inquires should be sent to kristina.simonyan@mssm.edu and interviews can be arranged at the Neurobiology of Language Conference in San Diego.
