An NIH-funded full-time post-doctoral fellowship position is immediately available, jointly supervised by Dr. Susan Bookheimer and Dr. Taylor Kuhn in the David Geffen School of Medicine, the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Staglin Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at UCLA.
We are looking for a motivated post-doctoral fellow interested in working at the interface of cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques, state-of-the-art MR-neuroimaging including fMRI, resting state, DTI and ASL, and experimental neuropsychology (e.g. Virtual Reality), to investigate the mechanisms of transcranial focused ultrasound (tFUS) as a novel, non-invasive cognitive prosthetic for the potential treatment of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.
The Bookheimer and Kuhn labs are located within the interdisciplinary Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) at UCLA. The Bookheimer lab focuses on neuroimaging and neuropsychology to investigate functional neuroanatomy across neurodevelopment differences, acquired brain injuries, neurodegenerative disorders and the healthy lifespan. The Kuhn lab employs experimental neuropsychology, psychophysiology and neuroimaging to both investigate non-invasive neuromodulation techniques as methods for perturbing brain states to further our understanding of functional neuroanatomy and as potential interventions for neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric conditions. Our long-term goals are to map symptom-specific neural systems at the individual person level to provide personalized targets for non-invasive neuromodulatory treatments.
