The Department of Psychiatry at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for a tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor position. Responsibilities include development of a research program that involves synergistic interaction with other basic and clinical researchers. Applicants must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research.
The successful applicant will have substantial experience in the field of structural and functional MRI data analysis, including brain network analysis using graph theory techniques. In addition, the successful applicant will have interest in contributing to projects that incorporate neuromodulatory strategies, in particular Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Other techniques such as ECT, VNS, biofeedback are also of interest, particularly in conjunction with TMS.
Responsibilities include collaborative and independent research on fundamental properties of neural networks, neuroplasticity, and the application of computational techniques to interrogate brain circuitry in psychiatric disorders. Ultimately the goal is the development of prognostic biomarkers and treatment targets through understanding the underlying pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric disorders. The effort is headed by Company website Sheline and Desmond Oathes, and will involve collaborative work with scientists at UPenn, including Christos Davatzikos (neuroimaging data analysis using machine learning techniques) and Taki Shinohara (neuroimaging statistics).
The candidate must have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research in neuroimaging, neuromodulatory techniques, cognitive neuroscience and/or translational research. Must have at least 3 years (Assistant)/ 7 years (Associate) experience conducting research in the area of neuroimaging in psychiatric populations. A track record of publications and NIH funding in this area is expected. Competitive candidates will have strong programming and computational skills. Prior experience with interfacing to data acquisition hardware and/or creating real-time systems is desirable. Interested individuals should provide a brief cover letter, curriculum vita, 2-3 page research statement, and names of 2-3 references.
The primary faculty appointment will be in Psychiatry with the possibility of dual appointments with one or more other appropriate departments at Penn. We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
