MRI Correlates of Depression and Responses to TreatmentPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Aug-27
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites applications for postdoctoral positions in the Section on the Neurobiology and Treatment of Mood Disorders. Research is focused on understanding the pathophysiology of depression and treatment response and their functional magnetic resonance (MRI) and structural MRI correlates. Current studies include: imaging patients with major depression and healthy controls undergoing treatment with novel anti-depressants, characterization of a task battery and naturalistic stimuli for subject phenotyping, and the development of other relevant advanced MRI techniques such as MRS, simultaneous EEG-fMRI, and ASL for applications used to detect treatment response in mood disorders.
The ETPB is a team of clinicians, psychologists, neuroscientists, neuroimagers committed to advancing the field of fMRI and the role it plays in improving our understanding of brain function. Our group has access to state-of-the art neuroimaging and neuromodulation facilities, including 7T and 3T MRI scanners, MRI-compatible 256-channel EEG, MEG, TMS, as well as behavioral testing facilities. We also work closely with the functional MRI, MEG, and MRS Core Facilities, and the Scientific and Statistical Computing Core Facility.
The applicant for this position should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in a specialty related to fMRI, EEG, MEG, and/or MRI and a strong passion for developing and advancing fMRI methods in a clinical setting. The applicant must be able to work independently, be highly skilled in functional neuroimaging and data analytics, as well as be excited to learn novel ways to explore and interpret neuroimaging data. The applicant is expected to have the desire to work collaboratively to advance the research goals of the section. Salary for this position is defined by type of training and years of experience (https://www.training.nih.gov/postdoctoral_irta_stipend_ranges)
The NIH is among the largest and best communities of MRI researchers in the world, with opportunities to collaborate with leaders in the field of fMRI, DTI, susceptibility contrast, parallel imaging, and molecular imaging, among other MRI-based specialties.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, and the contact information for three references to: Jennifer Evans, Ph.D. Building 10, Room 7-3335, 10 Center Drive, Bethesda, MD 20892, 301-402-1333, jennifer.evansnih.gov, TTY: MD Relay Operator at 1-800-735-2258.
