Postdoctoral Position opening at the University of Pittsburgh in
neuroimaging and mood disorders

Candidates are being considered for a post-doctoral associate
position in the Anticipation, Cognition and Emotion lab
(www.ace.pitt.edu) at the University of Pittsburgh
(http://www.pitt.edu) to work with Dr. Anna Manelis and her
team. A successful candidate will work on the NIMH funded
research project that uses multimodal neuroimaging (fMRI, MRI,
DTI and fNIRS) to understand the contribution of anticipatory
processing to cognitive and emotional dysfunction in
individuals with mood disorders.

Pittsburgh is a vibrant community which promotes diversity and
collaboration within its university and medical systems. Our
lab works in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh
Medical Center to perform neuroimaging studies which will help
us to better understand mood disorders, including major
depressive disorder and bipolar disorders.

Required Qualifications: we are seeking a highly motivated
candidate with a PhD degree in psychology, cognitive
neuroscience, computational neuroscience or a related
discipline. A strong research background in the analysis and
interpretation of neuroimaging data is required. A successful
candidate will have excellent writing and communication skills.
Candidates with a strong computational background are encouraged
to apply. Experience with FSL, Freesurfer and E-prime is
preferred. The ability to program in Shell, Matlab, Python
and/or R is preferred. Experience with fNIRS, graph modeling
and pattern classification analyses is a plus. While prior
experience with clinical populations is not necessary, we
expect candidates to be interested in neuroimaging research of
working and episodic memory and/or anticipatory and emotional
processing in individuals with mood disorders.


- Analyze neuroimaging data collected from multiple modalities
- Write manuscripts
- Present findings from studies at conferences

This is a full-time, 1- to 2-year position that can be extended
to 3 years. We are looking for someone to join our lab in Fall
2019 (with some flexibility). This position is funded by the
NIMH and salary will vary based on experience. If you are
interested in this position, please send a CV, research
statement, preprints/reprints of papers, and the names and
contact information for two references to Anna Manelis
(manelisa at upmc.edu).
