Postdoctoral Fellow – UCLA, California

Post-Doctoral Position in Neuroimaging of Addiction

The UCLA Neuroimaging of Addiction and Treatment Laboratory has a postdoctoral position available for a highly motivated person who would like to join our lab, which conducts multimodality brain imaging (structural MRI, fMRI, MRS and PET). Our research focuses on several important drug use disorders (Tobacco, Stimulant and Opioid Use Disorders) and large datasets to evaluate neural bases of behavioral deficits and effects of interventions. This work is performed in the context of UCLA’s state-of-the-art neuroimaging centers with exciting opportunities for bidirectional research translation with basic science laboratories and clinical research programs across the university. Candidates must have an PhD or MD in a relevant research field and experience in brain imaging data acquisition and analysis of neuroimaging data. Experience in both univariate and multivariate statistical approaches is preferred and in diverse neuroimaging software environments (e.g., FSL, SPM, Freesurfer, nilearn, NiPype). Proficiency in programming (i.e., Matlab, Python, R, Unix/Linux shell, and/or other languages) is desired.

Salary will be commensurate with training level. UCLA is an equal-opportunity employer. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are currently being accepted for employment to start as soon as possible.
