ABCD Study - Postdoctoral Opportunities at UC San Diego

The Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study is a new NIH-funded multi-site study of cognitive and brain development in children across the United States. A notable team of investigators, well known in the fields of adolescent development and neuroscience, will make use of new scientific and technological advances to measure brain maturation in the context of social, emotional, and cognitive development in over 10,000 children starting at ages 9-10 into early adulthood.

Multiple postdoctoral opportunities are available in the ABCD Coordinating Center (PIs: Terry Jernigan and Sandra Brown) and the ABCD Data Analysis and Informatics Center (PI: Anders Dale), both based at UC San Diego. For additional details and information on how to apply, please view the following links:

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Developmental Psychology

The University of California, Merced is seeking one new faculty member at the Assistant (tenure-track), Associate (tenured), or Full Professor (tenured) level in Developmental Psychology. This is a unique opportunity to join a growing faculty in psychology at a new University of California campus and to contribute to program building. Research focus is open, but should add to or complement areas of research of current developmental faculty, which include: cognitive, emotional, language and conversational development, cultural and interpersonal processes, and biological approaches to atypical development and learning. We are especially interested in a research focus related (directly or indirectly) to issues important to the San Joaquin Valley of California and its underserved, diverse populations. More info

Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Neuroscience

The BioCircuits Institute (BCI) and Departments of Physics, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Bioengineering, and Psychology and Neurobiology at the University of California, San Diego invite applications for a postdoctoral position in systems neuroscience, for experiments leading to the neuromorphic engineering of cognitive abilities. The ideal candidate will have experience with in vivo electrophysiology, in awake behaving animals, and desire to apply biologically inspired algorithms to VLSI circuits and systems. Close interaction with other project researchers in computational and theoretical neuroscience, nonlinear dynamical systems, and neuromorphic engineering is involved. We will accept applications immediately and will begin making selections on 1 September 2014, until the position is filled. Appointments are for two years (in one-year increments) with the possibility of a third. Send your statement of qualifications and interest with curriculum vitae, your two most significant publications and three letters of reference to Tim Gentner, Henry Abarbanel, Gert Cauwenberghs, Katja Lindenberg, Mikhail Rabinovich, and Terrence Sejnowski via email to: postdoc.muri[at]gmail.com. A Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree is required prior to the appointment. UCSD is an EO/AA employer.
