Postdoctoral Fellowship in Psychiatric Neuroimaging at Indiana University School of Medicine
The newly formed Adolescent Behavioral Health Research Program at the Indiana University School of Medicine is currently seeking applications from highly motivated, team-oriented candidates for a research postdoctoral fellowship in neuroimaging. The full-time position spread over 2-3 years will focus on honing expertise and research acumen in neuroimaging risky decisions in youth at particularly high risk for the development of substance use disorders and risky sexual behaviors. Candidates should have an interest in applying functional and structural neuroimaging techniques to various aspects of pediatric behavioral health. The fellow will actively participate in data analysis, and dissemination of findings (manuscripts, presentations) from multiple funded laboratory studies. Additional opportunities exist to contribute to other clinical studies that could benefit from the addition of neuroimaging. The fellow will receive mentorship from faculty investigators toward the development of an independent program of research. Training will be provided in project design, data analysis, child and adolescent behavioral health concepts, grant writing, and research ethics. Fellows may have the opportunity to gain clinical hours toward licensure through the delivery of clinic- and telehealth-based assessment and treatment services. Salary and benefits are commensurate with NIH rates based on training and years of experience.
