Postdoctorate Position

Gabriela Rosenblau's lab at the Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute is looking for a postdoctorate to fill a three-year position as soon as possible. The current position is funded by a grant from the Simons Foundation for Autism Research. Dr. Rosenblau's lab is focused on developing computational models to tease apart learning strategies of typically developing children and children with autism and investigating how these strategies are encoded in the brain. The lab relies on a variety of methodological approaches including computational modeling of behavioral data, model-based and multivariate analyses of fMRI data, pupillometry, and testing of children with autism. Further information is available here.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. 

What is offered:

  • A fully funded postdoc position for three years, including benefits.

  • Training in various data acquisition and analysis techniques.
  • Collaboration with researchers at Yale University as part of the grant funded projects and multiple opportunities to collaborate with researchers at George Washington University, Georgetown and NIH.
  • Dynamic, interdisciplinary, and international research environment.
  • Infrastructure for behavioral and neuroimaging experiments.

Desired Qualities

  • An interest in investigating how learning differs in children with and without autism at the behavioral and neural level.
  • Proficiency in designing experiments, devising models, and analyzing various types of behavioral and neuroimaging data
  • Experience in conducting and analyzing behavioral and neuroimaging experiments with human participants.
  • Fluency in English; excellent organizational, written and oral communication skills.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter and your CV including the contact details of two academic referees to gros[email protected]. Informal inquiries are welcome. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
