We invite applicants with strong

resting-state fMRI data to apply for a post-doctoral position in Caltech’s NIH
Conte Center for the Neurobiology of Social Decision-Making (conte.caltech.edu). 

The
research will be in a highly collaborative environment and include exploration
of multimodal data encompassing rs-fMRI, structural MRI, psychological
assessments, eyetracking data, as well as lesion data and intracranial
electrophysiology, with the overall aim to investigate  the neural
underpinnings of individual differences. Candidates should have a recent PhD in
systems, cognitive, or computational neuroscience with a track-record of first-author
