Open Positions in the Lab
Postgraduate Associate (Neuroinformatics and Computer Science)—Neuroimaging and Neuroinformatics, Psychiatry (Anticevic Lab)
The Anticevic Lab is looking for a graduating senior with an interest in pursuing graduate research education in neuroscience, psychology, and/or computer science for a postgraduate position in the Department of Psychiatry under the guidance of Zailyn Tamayo, Director of N3 Technology. The Anticevic Lab leverages developmental and cognitive neuroscience to better understand how psychiatric illnesses develop. We seek to understand processes such as motivation and cognition in depression, schizophrenia and psychotic spectrum disorders, and typical populations. We use a number of methods, including neuroimaging (fMRI), behavioral paradigms, and eye-tracking. This is a salaried, academic position focused on training in neuroinformatics. The lab is a part of the Division of Neurocognition, Neurocomputation, and Neurogenetics (N3) at Yale.
Training under the supervision of Dr. Alan Anticevic, and the Anticevic Lab research team, the post-graduate associate will work closely with the Director of N3 Technology, Zailyn Tamayo. The post-graduate associate will be trained in neuroinformatics. Under the supervision of the Director of N3 Technology, they will learn HIPAA, CFR Part 11, and GDPR compliance related to the conduct of human based research and human data security. The candidate will learn proper data management skills as well as to implement quality assurance of acquired neuroimaging data. The candidate will have coding skills to work on fmri processing pipelines and data orchestration. The candidate will preferably have systems engineering and software engineering knowledge.
The postgraduate associate will be mentored by Dr. Anticevic and will meet on a regular basis. They will have weekly supervision under the Director of N3 Technology, Zailyn Tamayo, in the development and conducting of neuroimaging analyses and processing workflows applied to psychiatric studies. They will be responsible for training those who intern in the lab in the summers and semesters. They will also be mentored by associate research scientists, post-doctoral associates, N3 faculty and the lab manager within the N3 Division.
The trainee's curriculum will include: gaining independence in developing neuroinformatics workflows and programming, such as behavioral computer working memory tasks using e-prime programming. They will present at lab meeting on scientific papers and on their work. They will be encouraged to work towards shared authorship on poster presentations, and attend conferences to learn about this area of work. They will take short courses or workshops focused on fMRI, basic statistics and computer programming. The position is open to those who have recently received a bachelor and/or master’s degree, but not doctoral degrees.
Postgraduate Associate (Anticevic Lab)
The Anticevic Lab is looking for a graduating senior with an interest in pursuing graduate research education in neuroscience, psychology, and/or medicine for a postgraduate position in the Yale Department of Psychiatry under the guidance of Dr. Alan Anticevic in the N3 Division.
The successful candidate will work under the guidance of Dr. Alan Anticevic as well as receive mentoring from N3 Faculty, associate research scientists, post-docs and research assistants in the lab. This is a salaried, academic position focused on training in human subjects research techniques. The postgraduate associate will receive individual instruction in recruitment, screening, and data collection for human subjects research in psychiatry and instruction in preprocessing and quality assurance of neuroimaging data while contributing to analytics studies.
Postgraduate positions are open to those who have recently received a bachelor and/or master’s degree (not doctoral degrees). An ideal candidate would have an interest in psychiatry, programming, psychology, cognitive neuroscience or related mental-health research. Excellent attention to detail required for data entry, processing, and quality control assessment.
Please submit a letter of interest, CV, a copy of academic transcript, and at least two names of reference to Nicole Santamauro at firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Postdoc Positions Available
We are recruiting motivated and talented individuals for postdoctoral positions available in Dr. Anticevic's research group (see here for research areas) at the Department of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine. Successful candidates are expected to play an active and independent role in one of our research areas. Our work broadly focuses on cognitive neuroscience of psychiatric illness with the focus on understanding cognitive and affective disturbances in processes such as working memory. Our group combines non-invasive neuroimaging with pharmacological manipulations as well as functional neuroimaging investigations of clinical populations such as schizophrenia. We emphasize close collaborations with other clinical and neuroimaging laboratories in the Department of Psychiatry.
Candidates with a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology or physical sciences, and with strong background and interest in human neuroimaging, are encouraged to apply. Competitive candidates are expected to have some programing proficiency and familiarity with UNIX, basic neuroimaging software, as well as a demonstrated publication record using neuroimaging. Clinical experience with psychiatric populations is preferred but not mandatory. Please send a curriculum vitae and a brief description (250 words or less) of fields of interest, and three letters of recommendation to the email address below. Please forward all materials by email to email@example.com.
