The postdoctoral fellow will help perform quality control/assurance of the rsfMRI data, carry out the proposed rsfMRI analyses and brain-behavior analysis, interpret the data, and assist in writing final research reports. This work will additionally examine relations between infants' brain development, their home environment, and the emergence of executive functions and social/emotional skills in early childhood. Our ideal candidate would be someone with experience in fMRI data analysis who also has excellent written and oral communication skills. The postdoctoral scholar in this position will work closely with Dr. Rasmus Birn, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Medical Physics and with Dr. Sarah Short, Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology, and faculty with the Center for Healthy Minds.
