A postdoctoral position is available in the Computation and Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at Emory University. We are using fMRI to study the neurobiology of reward, motivation, and decision-making under a variety paradigms, including both positive and negative incentives, peer-pressure, as well as developmental effects. The successful candidate will join a dynamic environment with a dedicated 3T research scanner and collaborations across multiple disciplines, including genetics, economics, and biomedical engineering. Individuals with fMRI experience preferred, although those with a strong computational background will also be considered. AA/EOE.
