New Postdoctoral Associate – Yale Imaging and Psychopharmacology Lab
Description: There is an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate interested in predictive modeling and neuroimaging of addictions within the Yale Imaging and Psychopharmacology Lab at Yale School of Medicine to start as early as February 1, 2020, under the primary mentorship of Dr. Sarah Yip, PhD, MSc. The postdoctoral associate will join a diverse, interdisciplinary team committed to understanding the biological mechanisms of addictions and their treatments.
The successful candidate will have an opportunity to work with large, longitudinal, multi-modal (clinical, behavioral, and imaging) datasets as well as to develop their own research questions within this conceptual and experimental framework. In addition to developing his or her own research program, the successful candidate will contribute to an NIH funded large-scale secondary data analysis of neuroimaging data from >3,000 adolescents and young adults, in order to help identify neuromarkers of vulnerability for risky alcohol use. Other federally funded projects within the lab include acquisition of neuroimaging data from individuals with opioid-use disorder and pharmacological challenge studies. Thus, there are multiple opportunities for translational research.
Qualifications: PhD, MD or MD/PhD in psychology, statistics, neuroscience or a related field is required. Previous experience working with neuroimaging and/or computational modeling is desired but not required. Candidates with strong statistical background but without neuroimaging experience are also strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply: Please e-mail a brief letter of interest describing your current experience, skills, and how your future goals align with this position, along with an up-to-date CV and contact information for three references directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also feel free to direct informal inquiries about this position to email@example.com.

UC Davis Data Mining Postdoctoral Position
NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION FUNDED CONTENT DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATIONAL DATA MINING POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
UC Davis Genome Center seeks a skilled, creative, and motivated postdoctoral scholar with an interest in building the knowledge and computational tools that can help change how students interact with online content. The successful candidate will work with the project Principal Investigator (PI) Marc Facciotti and co-PIs to design, execute and report on experiments that will test: how the design of online content and its delivery impact student affect and engagement while interacting with content; how different strategies for interventions during student/content interaction can influence student affect and engagement; how knowledge of student interaction with content can influence instructor behavior; and how each of these variables impacts student learning and inclusion.
The applicant must have a Ph.D. in biology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, statistics, computer science, engineering, evolution, environmental sciences, psychology, or related fields, including science education. Experience with scholarship of teaching and learning, especially in undergraduate STEM disciplines is preferred. It is also preferred that the candidate have experience with quantitative techniques and approaches, including programming and data analysis, and have experience with and knowledge of modern online educational technologies.
How To Apply:
Applicants should submit Curriculum Vitae, including list of publications, a Letter of Interest, Statement of Research, Statement of Contributions to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and contact information for three references to Prof. Facciotti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
