The Affective Neuroscience & Development Lab (Dr. Leah Somerville PI; http://andl.wjh.harvard.edu) at Harvard University is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to fill a position on an NIMH funded grant (collaborative with Dr. Deanna Barch at Washington University in St. Louis) focused on developing a systematic account of age-and pubertal linked pathways of brain development across multiple modalities of brain structure and function, as well as coupling across modalities and how both within-modality and cross modality coupling relate to the rise in internalizing symptoms seen across the emergence of puberty, using data from both the Human Connectome Project Development and Adolescent Brain and Cognitive Development study. The postdoc opportunity will involve learning and applying state of the art neuroimaging techniques to elucidate human brain development. The Harvard University site will contribute to analysis of diffusion MRI and task-based functional MRI within-modality data, as well as share responsibility for cross-modality coupling analyses, both in terms of normative development and in relation to risk for psychopathology. Ideal candidates will hold a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. To apply, send a CV, research statement, and list of three references to the Affective Neuroscience and Development Lab (). The starting date is flexible (but can be as soon as May 1st, 2023), and a two-year commitment is requested. Review of applications will begin immediately.
