Post-doctoral Position in the Memory and Development Laboratory at UC Davis

Post-doctoral Position in the Memory and Development Laboratory at UC Davis
 
The UC Davis Memory and Development (MAD) lab, headed by Dr. Simona Ghetti, invites applications for a post-doctoral position. Research in the MAD lab examines the development of episodic memory using behavioral and neuroimaging techniques. The candidate selected for this NICHD-funded post-doctoral position will have the opportunity to examine the structural and functional contributions of the hippocampus to memory formation and retention in toddlers and preschoolers.
 
In addition, the selected candidate will have ample opportunity to contribute to the lab’s current research on the neural mechanisms underlying the development of memory in older children and adolescents by probing longitudinal databases currently available in the lab or by designing new studies. Individuals with a strong background in structural and functional MRI data analysis, including high-resolution hippocampal imaging, are particularly encouraged to apply.
 
Applicants must hold a PhD in psychology, neuroscience or a related field upon the start date. E-mail a CV and a brief statement of research interests to: sghetti@ucdavis.edu. Please inquire/apply by October 15, 2016. Ideal start date: Fall 2016/Winter 2017.
