Postdoctoral Position at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Harvard Medical School.

START DATE: Summer 2011.

The NeuroCognition Lab at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging is offering a two-year NIMH-funded postdoctoral position in Multimodal Neuroimaging.The position involves working on an exciting multimodal imaging project that examines the neural dynamics of semantic processing in healthy individuals and in patients with schizophrenia, using fMRI MEG and ERPs. Close collaborators include Drs. Gina Kuperberg, Ellen Lau and Matti Hamalainen.

A Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, or related fields is required. The successful candidate should have very strong technical and programming skills (familiarity with UNIX/LINUX operating systems, and statistical and analytic software MATLAB, SPSS, etc), and hands-on experience with collecting, analyzing and interpreting fMRI data. He/she should also be interested in learning how fMRI methods can be integrated with EEG and MEG methods. Experience in the research areas of language processing, semantic and episodic memory, executive function and/or the cognitive neuroscience of schizophrenia are desirable but not required.

Candidates will have access to the state-of-the-art multimodal brain imaging facilities at the Martinos Center (see and will have an exciting opportunity for training in multiple neuroimaging techniques, as well as how to apply basic cognitive neuroscience methods to asking important questions in patient populations.
