The ideal candidate will have strong computational and imaging analysis skills and a background in or interest in understanding brain development. The candidate will work with a team of HCP investigators to identify trajectories of structural brain development, as well as functional brain connectivity development and as a function of age, gender, puberty and their interactions. The successful applicant will work closely with project PIs Deanna Barch and David Van Essen as well as the HCP PIs at the collaborating HCP Development sites. We have access to state-of-the-art neuroimaging analysis facilities, including the Center for High-Performance Computing ( The position will focus on analysis of structural brain development and functional connectivity brain development in data being collected as part of the HCP Development. Candidates should have a Ph.D (or about to be awarded one) in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field, with a background that includes experience in neuroimaging data analysis and strong programming and statistical analysis skills. Experience with or interest in development is preferred. The position is available immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled. This is a full-time position, contingent upon ongoing performance and periodic review, with competitive salary and benefits commensurate with NIH guidelines.
