Postdoctoral Position at Georgetown University

Functional Neuroimaging


The Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at Georgetown University, directed by

Dr. Chandan Vaidya, is looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow with fMRI analysis skills.

The postdoctoral position will support ongoing NIH-funded studies examining executive

function and learning in children with a variety of psychiatric diagnoses, including Autism and

ADHD. There are ample opportunities for making independent contributions using existing

transdiagnostic data and participation in ongoing studies. Duties include data analysis,

supervision of research assistants and graduate students, and contributing to manuscript and

grant preparation and writing. We expect the candidate to have strong statistical skills, user-

level familiarity with fMRI preprocessing and group-level analysis. Ongoing studies include

resting-state and task-evoked functional connectivity as well as activation data. Knowledge of

advanced imaging methods such as predictive modelling, and graph theory, is a plus.


Qualifications • Ph.D. in disciplines related to functional neuroimaging

(Psychology, Neuroscience, Statistics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Data Science)

  • Interest in the application of neuroimaging for understanding psychiatric disorders
  • Experience with neuroimaging data basic and advanced analysis of brain activation and

connectivity (fMRI) and knowledge of SPM or FSL or AFNI.

  • Strong Programming skills (Matlab or Python)
  • Strong Statistical skills (R or SPSS)


The position is opened immediately until filled, with a flexible start date. To apply, please send a

cover letter, CV, and names of two references to Chandan Vaidya (
