fMRI/Computational Postdoctoral Fellow

 

There is an opening for a postdoctoral associate with expertise in MRI/fMRI interested in the neuroeconomics of decision-making and/or drug addiction within the Glimcher Lab at NYU to start as early as August 2018.The postdoctoral associate will join an interdisciplinary team focuses on understanding human decision-making. Experience with the study of drug addiction and/or PET are a plus.The Glimcher lab is a well-funded pioneering interdisciplinary group composed of psychologists, neuroscientists, economists and psychiatrists. It employs techniques ranging from in-hospital measures of human decision- making to lab studies of behavior to fMRI to single unit studies in animals.The successful candidate will have strong computational skills as well as experience in either FMRI or the study of addiction. In addition to developing his or her own research program, the candidate can participate in a recently funded NIH clinical research study examining risk and protective factors for substance use in individuals seeking treatment for opioid addiction that borrows methods from neuroeconomics, clinical neuroscience, and computational psychiatry.The successful candidate will have an opportunity to work with large, longitudinal, multi-modal (clinical, physiological, behavioral, and imaging) datasets as well as develop their own research questions within this conceptual and experimental framework.This research will be supervised by Dr. Paul Glimcher PhD (NYU), Dr. Anna Konova PhD (Rutgers), and Dr. John Rotrosen MD (NYU).

Non-human primate electrophysiology Postdoctoral Fellow

 

The Glimcher Lab at the Center for Neural Science at NewYork University is seeking an accomplished and motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the neural basis of valuation and decision making in non-human primates.This new NIH-funded project follows from our recent NHP and human studies on canonical computations in value coding and their relationship to optimal choice behavior.The main goal of this work is to examine how statistical regularities in the environment drive adaptive neural responses in decision-related circuits and influence choice behavior.This research will be supervised by Prof. Paul Glimcher, PhD, and Prof. Kenway Louie, MD PhD, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop their own research questions within this conceptual and experimental framework.
