Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Pediatric Affective Neuroscience at Stanford University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
The Laboratory of Manpreet Singh, MD, MS, at Stanford University (https://med.stanford.edu/pedmood.html) is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellow position focused on identifying biological and environmental risk factors, understanding disease pathophysiology and developmental outcomes, and developing new treatments for mood disorders that begin in childhood. Mood problems in children are brain-based, and we strive to understand the neural circuit dysfunction that underlies them through critical sensitive periods in brain development.
The successful applicant will have a PhD (and/or an MD) in Psychology, Neuroscience, Engineering, Statistics, Computer Science, Neurophysiology, or related fields AND have fluent knowledge of psychopathology and the clinical assessment of psychiatric disorders. It is also critical that the candidate effectively work and engage in a highly collaborative team environment. This opportunity is open to candidates interested in accruing clinical hours toward licensure while enhancing scientific expertise. Prior publications in related areas and experience with analysis of neuroimaging data is required. In addition, strong programming skills are preferred. Duties will include leading a team to implement existing grants, conceptualizing and writing new grant ideas, publishing manuscripts, and contributing to posters and talks. Candidates will administer diagnostic assessments and conduct clinical interviews; pilot MRI scans; and analyze multimodal neuroimaging, behavioral, cognitive, serum, and salivary data. Laboratory and Stanford resources include research-dedicated 3T MRI scanners, Clinical and Translational Research Facilities for genomic and other laboratory assay collection, biostatistical and computational core, and an interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment. Salary commensurate with experience. This position requires US citizenship or permanent residence. More information about our ongoing studies can be found at http://med.stanford.edu/pedmood/research.html. Position open until filled.
