A postdoctoral position is currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Joseph Dunsmoor at the University of Texas at Austin in the Department of Psychiatry to investigate affective neuroscience in healthy populations and patients with clinical anxiety. These projects utilize functional MRI and peripheral measures of psychophysiology, and incorporate aspects of Pavlovian conditioning, episodic memory, and decision making. Candidates will also have the opportunity to be involved in studies using real-time fMRI and immersive virtual reality.
Candidates should have a PhD in Psychology or Neuroscience (or related fields), proficiency in coding (i.e., Matlab), and significant experience with functional MRI design, acquisition, and analysis. Experience working with clinical populations or clinical/translational neuroscience is especially welcomed. Successful candidates will have a strong publication record, excellent organizational skills, and the ability to work successfully both independently and as a part of a team.
UT-Austin is an internationally recognized research university in a truly unique city with amazing live music, food, and a distinctive culture.
Please send CV with names of three references and a statement of research interests to Dr. Dunsmoor [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Applicants will be considered until the position is filled.
