The Group of Psychiatric Neuroscience at theUniversity of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy) will publish 3 calls for researchfellowships in neuroimaging in different projects with multiple PIs. One ofthe positions is reserved for magnetoencephalography (1 year renewable up to 4years, funding already secured), the other two for fMRI (1 for 1 year renewable,1 for 2 years renewable).  The positions are targeted at postdoctoralfellows. Outstanding predoctoral candidates will be evaluated. The expectedstarting dates are between March and July 2020. 
Expressions of interest are welcome before December 21st.
The Group of Psychiatric Neuroscience is headedby Prof. Alessandro Bertolino and investigates the association of genetic variability with systems-level phenotypes, witha special focus on subjects at risk forpsychiatric disorders (for recent articles from the lab, see [1], [2], [3]). Prof. Giuseppe Blasi and his team haveaccess to and routinely tests patients, relatives of patients, and individualsat risk for psychosis. The department has an in-house Elekta Triux magnetoencephalographywith a dedicated technician. Two 3T MRI scanners are available in collaboratinghospitals. Successful candidates will work in the lab of Brain Imaging,Networks, and Data mining (BIND) directed by Dr. Giulio Pergola. The environment is interdisciplinary,including psychologists, biotechnologists, and MDs, and internationally oriented, e.g., including Marie Curie awardees Dr.Pergola and Dr. Linda A. Antonucci, along with several other members trained for> 1 year in UK, USA, and Finland. 
The ideal applicant is a neuroimager withinternational experience and a PhD in Neuroscience, Cognitive Sciences,Neuropsychology, Computational Science, or any quantitative research field. Coding experience (Matlab, Python, or R) isrequired, whereas machine learning and graph theory expertise are a plus.Successful candidates are expected to have atleast one published/submitted lead author paper. We expect the successfulcandidate to be motivated and research-oriented. It is equally importantto have a team-working attitude and a motivation to fit in the group. Proficiencyin Italian is not required. Consider applying even if you only have strong codingand analytic skills – definitely applyif you think you have smart ideas on how to analyze multimodal neuroimagingdata from hundreds of subjects.
The University of Bari Aldo Moro is one the largestItalian universities (50.000 students, 1500 permanent professors andresearchers, 1500 units of technicians and administrative staff). Bari is asunny city located by the sea, and the third largest Italian city south ofRome. The cost of living is low relative to Italian standards. Net monthly fellowshipamount starts at 1450 EUR and can be raised over time.
Please contact Dr. Giulio Pergola sending aCV and the contact details of at least two references if you would like tohave more information on the positions and on the ongoing projects ([log in to unmask]).
