Reiner Post-doctoral Fellowship at Columbia University

The Herbert H. and Ruth S. Reiner Post-Doctoral Fellowship is funded through the Department of Psychiatry, Division of Behavioral Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons. The early neuroimaging, neuroimmune, and neuropsychology lab (early N3) is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow to support data analyses across several NIH funded projects related to the influence of prenatal exposures on early brain, cognitive, and emotion regulation development. The overarching goal of the lab is to identify early immune, brain, and neuropsychological antecedents of childhood psychiatric risk to reduce the time to intervention for young children. We seek a fellow with expertise in behavioral and cognitive paradigms with young children and video coding data. The fellow will have the opportunity to provide supervision to research staff to support ongoing data collection and assist with analyses of behavioral and/or neuroimaging data collected from the prenatal period through toddler years. This two-year fellowship will be available on July 1, 2021. The department of psychiatry, as well as the larger medical school community provide extensive opportunity for clinical and research didactics, courses and seminars related to the biomedical sciences. Candidates must have a doctorate degree with good writing and analytical skills. Experience with data collection/analyses of either physiological and/or neuroimaging (e.g., MRI, fNIRS, EEG) are a plus. Programming abilities (e.g., Matlab, Python, R) or experience with software for behavioral research (e.g., Eprime, Mangold) is preferred. Stipends are at current NIH levels of support. U.S. and non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply.
