Magnetoencephalography (MEG)Posted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Aug-27
The Experimental Therapeutics and Pathophysiology Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health Intramural Research Program (NIMH IRP), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), invites outstanding individuals to apply for a three- to five-year MEG post-doctoral fellowship at one of the premier research sites in the world. The renowned NIH Clinical Center on the 300-acre Bethesda campus of the NIH, near Washington D.C., houses unsurpassed, state-of-the-art neuroimaging facilities (MRI, PET and MEG) all dedicated to research, as well as superb clinical facilities, and an exciting, interactive research community of hundreds of talented colleagues. The strong scientific environment and outstanding resources at NIH make this a unique opportunity for an outstanding innovative scientist.
The Branch takes a multidisciplinary approach, with multimodal neuroimaging (sMRI, rMRI, fMRI, EEG, MEG) at its core, but also integrates genetic, neurochemical, neuropsychological, and clinical investigations to study treatment-resistant depression and other related mood disorders (bipolar disorder, risk for suicide) and the mechanisms of action of fast-acting antidepressants such as ketamine.
You will work with an interdisciplinary team of clinicians and researchers, all with the goal of understanding the neurobiological underpinnings of mood disorders and response to fast-acting antidepressants. You will assist with MEG data collection and analysis of ongoing studies of mood disorders and treatment response. You will also have access to large, unique, archival datasets.
We seek an exceptional individual with recent training in MEG/EEG techniques. You are therefore (1) a recent Ph.D. in experimental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, neuroscience, or other applicable disciplines. (2) You have a demonstrated record of superb scientific writing skills, as well as excellent interpersonal and presentation skills. (3) You have experience with advanced signal processing (e.g., ICA), source localization, and other analytic methods for studying electrophysiological data. In addition, experience with neuroimaging of clinical populations is highly desirable. Experience with AFNI/SUMA, SPM, FSL, Freesurfer, UNIX/LINUX computational environments and/or programming skills (MATLAB, R, C++; JAVA, Python) is highly desirable, but not required.
The position is open immediately and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. A curriculum vitae, letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, and three letters forwarded directly from recommenders should be sent to Dr. Carlos Zarate, C/O Dr. Jessica Gilbert, by email at jessica.gilbertnih.gov.
