Description: The Brain Behavior Laboratory (BBL) at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) and The Lifespan Brain Institute (LiBI) are now accepting applications for a full-time Research Associate to coordinate our imaging analytics group, lead by Ted Satterthwaite. The BBL and LiBI study brain-behavior relationships in development and psychopathology; ongoing efforts include large-scale studies such as the Philadelphia Developmental Cohort (PNC), a landmark study of over 1,600 youth who received multi-modal neuroimaging as well as detailed clinical and cognitive phenotyping. Responsibilities will include: data integration and analysis, developing and maintaining imaging processing pipelines, supervising staff and trainees, assisting with grant preparation, and writing first-author manuscripts. This position will involve working as part of a highly-interdisciplinary research team that includes experts in diverse fields such as neuropsychiatry (Raquel E. Gur; director of LiBI), neuropsychology (Ruben Gur), network theory (Danielle S. Bassett), multivariate pattern analysis (Christos Davatzikos), and imaging statistics (Taki Shinohara). To work effectively in this highly collaborative environment, the applicant must have superior communication, language, and writing skills. The applicant must have completed their Ph.D. in neuroscience, engineering, psychology, or statistics with an established record of high productivity; post-doctoral training is desirable. Expertise in using neuroimaging software (e.g., FSL, ANTs, AFNI), statistical packages (e.g., R), and scripting languages (e.g., bash) are required. Salary flexible and based upon experience.

Application Instructions: Please send cover letter and CV to Ted Satterthwaite (sattertt@upenn.edu).
