Applicants should have a PhD or MD with a strong track record in clinical, affective, and translational neuroscience. Applicants should be comfortable with processing and analysis of multi-modal neuroimaging data. Review of applications will begin immediately, and questions about the position can be sent directly to Drs. Pagliaccio ( and Auerbach (
