Analytics Made Easy - StatCounter


We have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to begin any time between January to July 2018. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to work on neuroimaging research related to empathy, prosociality, social networks, well-being, loneliness, and depression (including collaborative projects with the Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab).

Successful applicants should have a PhD in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, statistics/biostatistics, mathematics, or a related field. They should also have a strong background in programming, statistics, and the design and analysis of fMRI experiments, , as well as excellent communication and organizational skills. Experience with computational neuroscience techniques — such as multivariate pattern analysis, prospective prediction, machine learning, effective connectivity, or connectomics/graph theory — is a bonus, but not a requirement.

The position will be fully funded for at least 2 years with the potential for a longer-term position. We will review applications beginning December 10, until the position is filled. Applicants should send a CV, a statement describing research interests and experience (maximum: 1 page), and contact information for two references to Sylvia Morelli (smorelli@uic.edu).


Dr. Morelli will accept new graduate students to join the lab in Fall 2018. Before applying, it is important to assess whether your research interests align with the ongoing projects in the lab and to think about how you might build and expand on the current lines of research. The lab is looking for applicants with a background in social, clinical, or developmental psychology; neuroscience; computer science; and/or economics. Ideal candidates will have expertise in fMRI data analysis, daily diary methodology, social network analyses, applied interventions, clinical assessments, and/or computing (e.g., programming in Matlab, Python, and R). If you are interested in applying to the lab, please e-mail Dr. Morelli your CV and a summary of your research interests.
