Postdoctoral scholarship at UC Berkeley The Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute (HWNI) at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar. This NIH-funded position involves a collaboration with a functional neuroanatomist (PI Kevin Weiner) and a developmental cognitive neuroscientist (PI Silvia Bunge), and leverages one or more longitudinal multimodal brain imaging datasets. This individual will work on a project exploring the functional significance of tertiary sulci in association cortices. Despite major advances in our understanding of human brain development, we still know very little about whether and how the emergence of sulci influences the maturation of brain function and behavior. In this project, we focus on sulci in lateral prefrontal and parietal cortices that have been overlooked for over a century, and use modern behavioral and brain imaging techniques to elucidate their role in the emergence of higher cognitive functions. The postdoctoral scholar, in collaboration with a graduate student, will explore longitudinal relations between sulcal anatomy, white matter tracts, task-based brain activation, functional connectivity, and/or cognitive performance.
