Laboratory of Developmental Neuroscience

A postdoctoral research position is available in the Department of
Psychology at Penn State University in the lab of Dr. Suzy Scherf (
http://sites.psu.edu/scherflab/ldn-director/). This position is supported
by an NIMH-funded grant investigating the influence of pubertal development
on face processing and functional brain development. We employ functional
(fMRI) and structural (sMRI) magnetic resonance, together with detailed
behavioral paradigms in typically developing children, adolescents, and
emerging adults. We use univariate, pattern analytic, and effective
connectivity strategies in addressing questions about functional changes in
the organization of neural network organization.

The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in developmental or cognitive
neuroscience, or related field, previous experience with fMRI research,
strong programming (e.g., Matlab) and quantitative skills, and a promising
publication record. Experience with child and adolescent participants is a
plus, but not required.

This is an excellent position for qualified candidates to gain expertise in
developmental neuroscience and work in a supportive lab environment that
prioritizes professional development, including publications and
grant-writing experience (see http://sites.psu.edu/scherflab/publications/)

The position is open immediately but start dates as late as Fall 2017 will
also be considered. This is a one-year position renewable up to 5 years,
