[visionlist] Hiring – Post doctoral Scholar – developmental fMRI & face processing w/Suzy ScherfPosted: June 1, 2017
State University, Department of Psychology: Post-Doctoral Scholar
of Developmental Neuroscience
postdoctoral research position is available in the Department of Psychology at
Penn State University in the lab of Dr. Suzy Scherf (http://ift.tt/2rp2hbq).
This position is supported by an NIMH-funded grant investigating the influence
of pubertal development on face processing and functional brain
development. We employ functional
(fMRI) and structural (sMRI) magnetic resonance, together with detailed
behavioral paradigms in typically
adolescents, and emerging adults. We use univariate, pattern analytic, and
effective connectivity strategies in addressing questions about functional
changes in the organization of neural network organization.
ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in developmental or cognitive neuroscience,
or related field, previous experience with fMRI research, strong programming
