The S.E.L.F Regulation Laboratory (http://self-regulationlab.fiu.edu/; PI Dr. Paulo Graziano, PhD) in collaboration with the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (http://dcn.fiu.edu; PI Dr. Anthony Dick, PhD) at Florida International University (Miami, FL) is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to participate in an NIMH funded study to examine the neurobiology of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in young children with a particular focus on their executive function and emotion regulation functioning. Candidates should have a PhD in psychology, developmental science, neuroscience, clinical science, or related discipline. The project will use neuropsychological tests, psychophysiology, diffusion-weighted imaging, and functional magnetic resonance imaging on children 5-7-years-old (with and without ADHD), and thus experience in neuroimaging data collection and analysis, and excellent computational and statistical know-how, is highly desired. Experience working with young children with developmental disabilities is a plus, as is a clinical science background.
The positions are for one year with the possibility of renewal for multiple years. Salary is $50,000 plus benefits. The positions are open immediately and we hope to fill them by November 1, 2016.
