Post-Doc at Vanderbilt, Brain Development Lab with James Booth

A post-doctoral position is open in the Brain Development Laboratory in the Department of Psychology and Human Development at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. We are broadly interested in how the brain changes over development and learning, and in individual differences (including disability) in brain organization. Research in the lab is focused on the neural basis of (1) reading and language, (2) mathematical cognition, (3) executive function and (4) cross-cultural differences. Successful candidate will be expected to be a part of a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative team.

PhD in psychology, education, neuroscience, or a related field is required. For this position, we are particularly interested in candidates with background in literacy in the deaf. Previous experience in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data collection and advanced analysis is preferred. Candidates are expected to have a demonstrated record of excellent scientific writing skills. Please address questions or send Curriculum Vita, letter of application with research interests, and contact information for three references to James R. Booth at by July 10, 2017.
