POSTDOCTORAL SCIENTIST

POSITION OPENING: The Robertson Lab at Dartmouth is seeking 1-2 postdoctoral scientists to lead neuroimaging studies of the functional and molecular architecture of the human brain. Target start date is September 1, 2018. These full-time positions lasts for 2 years with possible renewal.


REQUIREMENTS: We encourage applications from creative, self-motivated scientists who are eager to develop an independent research program in a top neuroimaging department. Our lab uses neuroimaging and psychophysical techniques (fMRI and MRS), as well as Virtual Reality (VR) to tackle research questions in areas such as:

  • The neurobiology of autism (fMRI, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, EEG)

  • Real-world scene perception (fMRI, head-mounted Virtual Reality)

  • Neuroplasticity and learning (Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, fMRI)

 

The following strengths are desired:

  • Programming (e.g. MATLAB, Python, shell scripting)

  • Neuroimaging experience (fMRI, MRS)

  • Computational approaches (Machine learning, MVPA)

  • Virtual reality (C, Unity)

  • Psychophysics 

 

ABOUT DARTMOUTH: Dartmouth College is an Ivy League university with graduate programs in the sciences, engineering, medicine, and business. It is located in Hanover, New Hampshire and has a scenic, historic campus on the Appalachian Trail. The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is a premier neuroimaging department, with 28 faculty studying topics that range from behavioral and computational neuroscience to social psychology.
