A joint postdoctoral fellowship between the departments of Biostatistics (Dr. Taki Shinohara) and Psychiatry (Dr. Desmond Oathes) at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking applicants who are willing to learn and to help develop statistical models for functional MRI data acquired in the context of non-invasive neuromodulation. We plan to study predictors of TMS response, change before and after neuromodulation, and better understand how acute and prolonged modulation protocols induce neural plasticity. We prefer individuals who have a PhD in a related field and with methodological research publications as well as experience with statistical computation. Communication skills are also prioritized given that the applicant will learn and share resources across labs and will be encouraged to write papers, grants and to give scientific presentations.
Salary will be based on NIH pay scale.
Please contact Desmond Oathes (oathes [at] upenn [dot] edu) with a cover letter, CV and list of references.
