Title: Post-doctoral FellowPosted: January 15, 2016
Company/Institution: University of Pennsylvania
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Department: Brain Behavior Laboratory

Description: The Brain Behavior Laboratory (BBL) at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) is now accepting applications for a full-time post-doctoral fellow within our imaging analytics group, lead by Ted Satterthwaite. The BBL studies 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. Anticipated research focus for this position would be to use novel data-driven methods to understand heterogeneity in developmental trajectories of brain networks and neuropsychiatric syndromes. As such, the position will involve working as part of a highly-interdisciplinary research team, with particular emphasis on collaborative work with leaders including Dr. Christos Davatzikos (multivariate pattern analysis), Dr. Danielle Bassett (network theory), and Taki Shinohara (imaging statistics). 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. Expertise in using neuroimaging software (e.g., FSL, ANTs, AFNI), statistical packages (e.g., R, Matlab), and scripting languages (e.g., bash) is highly desirable.

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