Job Description:

Business: Boys Town National Research Hospital Job Summary: The Institute for Human Neuroscience at Boys Town National Research Hospital, directed by Dr. Tony Wilson, is revolutionizing human brain research. We have an open postdoctoral fellowship position within the Institute's Dynamic Imaging of Cognition & Neuromodulation (DICoN) Laboratory, led by Dr. Wilson. The position is up to three years in duration. Area of research focus is flexible, but demonstrated expertise in neuroimaging, statistical modeling, and/or cognitive neuroscience is essential. Applicants with previous experience in developmental psychology and/or aging neuroscience will be given preference, but we are primarily seeking the best candidates to join our Institute. Postdoctoral research fellows work under the same general guidelines and receive the same compensation as NIH-funded postdoctoral trainees. Major research-dedicated tools in the Institute for Human Neuroscience include a new Siemens Prisma MRI system, two next-generation MEG Neo systems, high-definition transcranial direct- and alternating-current stimulation (HD-tDCS/tACS) equipment, advanced biomechanical equipment, and extensive support staff for neuropsychological testing and participant recruitment. In 2022, the Institute will be the only site in North America to also have a high-density optically-pumped magnetometry (OPM) system. Successful candidates will have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, or a related field, with an excellent publication record for their career stage. They will join a vibrant and rapidly growing group of cognitive neuroscientists in Omaha using state-of-the-art neuroimaging equipment and resources, with significant opportunities within the Institute for career development and promotion to faculty. The Institute for Human Neuroscience is setting the pace for neuroscience research in the region. Having the Institute directly on the historic Boys Town campus means research findings can be used to improve treatments and help change the way America cares for children and families, everywhere.
