The Pediatric Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program (P-MAP) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral scholar in neuroimaging. The focus of this position will be on analyzing fMRI and/or MRS data.
Candidates should have (or nearing completion of) a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, radiology, or related field and have a strong background in quantitative analysis. Proficiencies with at least one neuroimaging analysis software (e.g., FSL, SPM, Freesurfer, AFNI, etc.) and Unix/Linux environment are expected. Familiarity with Matlab is a plus.
The postdoctoral scholar will be mentored by Vilma Gabbay, M.D., with the expectation for him/her to advance both clinical and methodological knowledge through this postdoctoral training. The P-MAP under the direction of Dr. Gabbay, is a unique program in the greater NY metropolitan area dedicated to the study and treatment of adolescent mood and anxiety disorders, utilizing innovative neuroimaging and immunological methodologies. The postdoctoral scholar will work on projects that examine the neurobiology of adolescent mood disorders, with a focus on task-based and resting-state fMRI, as well as MRS imaging data.
The postdoctoral fellow’s primary responsibility is to analyze neuroimaging data from funded research projects. In addition, the mentor is fully committed to fostering the trainee’s research independence through first-authored manuscript writing and grant preparation.
The start date of the position is as soon as possible. The initial employment is for two-years, with possible extension. Salary will be commensurate with experience and the cost of living in New York City. Subsidized housing close to the Mount Sinai campus (upper east side, Manhattan) is available.
Please send your CV (with 3 references) and a statement of interest to Kailyn Bradley, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
