Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cognitive Development and Neuroimaging
Employer: Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Location: New York, NY, USA
Positions available: July 1, 2020
A slot in a NIMH funded postdoctoral training fellowship in child psychiatry research (2 to 3 years) is available to a child psychiatrist, psychiatrist, neuroscientist, or psychologist to conduct MRI research in childhood psychiatric disorders and developmental processes. Dr. Marsh’s Cognitive Development and Neuroimaging Lab uses multimodal MRI, electrophysiology, behavioral and clinical measures to study brain development in healthy children and in children with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. The lab is also currently collecting MRI data from mother-child/infant dyads in a study aimed at identifying shared indices of regulatory deficits that persist over development.
Preferred candidates will have experience in MRI techniques, strong writing and communication skills (proficiency in English is essential). As part of the T32 program, the fellow will be expected to develop an independent career: playing a lead role in the design and execution of projects in the lab, publishing and presenting data and results.
