Department: The new Translational Neuroimaging Laboratory within the Department of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Science at UCLA Description: We are focused on clinical and translational applications of brain imaging techniques (fMRI, MRS, PET, ASL) and are committed to improving health outcomes for people with substance use disorders. The project we are currently recruiting for involves using structural and functional MRI-guided, personalized brain stimulation targets in an effort to reduce craving and withdrawal symptoms in people who smoke cigarettes. This work will take place at the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA. The addiction neuroscience community at UCLA is well-resourced and provides infrastructure and professional development opportunities including training grants, several high-profile seminar series, competitive intramural awards, grant writing support, clinical research support, access to two 3T dedicated research MRIs, a statistical consulting core, a high-performance computing cluster, and much more. Requirements: We seek candidates who are conscientious, curious, and creative. We believe in work-life balance and helping you build the career you want. The position is available immediately but the start date is flexible. Candidates must have: strong technical skills analyzing MRI data (preferably familiar with FSL, MATLAB, and python) previous experience working with human research participants an MD or PhD in neuroscience (or related field) experience using the BIDS specification, or capacity for self-directed learning. Additional experience in other imaging modalities (especially ASL and/or MRS) is desirable. Experience with transcranial magnetic stimulation is good but not necessary (we will teach you). Motivation to improve treatments for substance use disorders is also a strong plus. Contact Person: Please contact Dr. Nicole Petersen by email to apply or to ask questions: email@example.com. Please include a CV and a detailed cover letter that describes your long-term research interests and professional goals. Applications from people in underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
