Stanford University's Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences is seeking to hire full time post-doctoral fellows for their Cognitive & Systems Neuroscience Laboratory. This lab is headed by Dr. Vinod Menon who has broad multidisciplinary expertise that spans several scientific disciplines and has published extensively on various aspects of human cognition and brain function.
POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN DEVELOPMENTAL COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE Currently Available: The Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in developmental cognitive neuroscience. We seek candidates with strong research backgrounds to work on NIH-funded projects combining multimodal brain imaging (fMRI, MRI, DTI) with cognitive modeling and advancedcomputational brain network analyses in one or more of the following areas: learning and memory, numerical cognition and reading, cognitive training, and brain network development. Populations of interest include typically developing children and adults, children with learning disabilities, and individuals with autism. The successful candidate will develop a vigorous research program that contributes to, and complements, ongoing research studies of typical and atypical neurocognitive development. The candidate will have access to state-of-the-art brain imaging facilities and computational resources at Stanford University. Candidates must have a PhD and research experience in cognitive neuroscience, brain development, cognitive science, psychology, or related fields. Strong computational skills and expertise in fMRI data analysis are highly desirable. Please email a CV, statement of research interests, relevant background, list of publications, and have three letters of reference sent to Drs. Vinod Menon and Aarthi Padmanabhan at email@example.com

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains d...edicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
