Closing Date: Feb. 15th, 2024 but applications reviewed on a rolling basis
The Colorado Learning Disability Research Center at the University of Colorado (Boulder, Colorado, USA), is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with expertise in neuroimaging related to cognitive, developmental and/or educational neuroscience to work under the direction of Prof. Marie Banich (https://www.colorado.edu/faculty/banich/). The position provides an opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary and multi-institution research environment studying the role that executive control processes play in reading and math achievement, as well as reading and math anxiety. Individuals will have the opportunity to work on neuroimaging studies that focus on neural systems as they relate to academic, cognitive, and behavioral outcomes in late childhood to adolescence. Research opportunities will include involvement in the collection and analysis of data to-be-initiated neuroimaging studies, manuscript writing, travel and conference presentations, and support for writing mentored grant proposals. In addition, there is access to two rich formerly collected data sets on related topics that are available for investigation.
Ideal candidates should be highly motivated to publish first-author papers and present at conferences, and should possess a background in functional neuroimaging, advanced statistics and computational expertise, strong experimental and scientific writing skills, ability to work in a team environment, and be self-motivated. Experience working with children and youth in a research setting is also desired. Additional desired strengths include competence in MRI data acquisition/analysis and programming and analytic skills (e.g., Matlab, R, and/or Python).
