Jobs

The following postions are currently accepting applications at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute:

  • Postdoctoral Associate

    Posted: January 22, 2014

    A Postdoctoral Associate position is available for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Brooks King-Casas at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (http://research.vtc.vt.edu/). Projects in the lab use fMRI to examine the neural computations underlying decision-making, with methods adapted from experimental economics, game theory, as well as social and computational neuroscience. We also have a strong interest in using these approaches to examine the developmental trajectory of neural mechanisms of decision-making, and how individual differences in these contribute to the development of substance use and health risk behaviors.

    The lab is located in the newly established Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute in Roanoke, VA. The VTCRI provides full access to outstanding infrastructure, including three research-dedicated Siemens 3T Trio scanners and a high-throughput computing cluster. The successful candidate will play a lead role a highly collaborative multidisciplinary scientific efforts among the VTC School of Medicine and Research Institute, the Carilion Healthcare System, and departments across Virginia Tech.

    Consideration of applications will begin immediately and will end when the positions are filled. Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.

  • Postdoctoral Associate

    Posted: January 22, 2014

    Applications are invited for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Pearl Chiu (http://people.vtc.vt.edu/~chiup/) at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute (http://research.vtc.vt.edu/). Projects in the lab use fMRI to examine the neurobiology of motivated behavior and social influences on decision-making with methods adapted from experimental economics, behavioral & computational neuroscience, genetics, and psychology. We also have a strong interest in developing quantitative data-driven methods for assessment and diagnosis. For candidates interested in psychiatric neuroscience, the lab provides plentiful opportunities to examine how neural anomalies may be quantified and rehabilitated in conditions including depression, substance dependence, and PTSD.

    Postdoctoral Associates contribute to the goals of the lab through designing and conducting research projects, preparing data for peer-reviewed publications and presentations, and representing the results at conferences.
