We seek a talented neuroscientist with extensive experience in the areas of advanced fMRI analysis, (such as encoding or decoding models) and the design of experiments using naturalistic tasks and assessing spontaneous thoughts. A 3-year postdoctoral position is available at Dr. Mingbo Cai’s lab at the International Research Center for Neurointelligence, The University of Tokyo. You will work on an exciting international collaboration project co-funded by AMED of Japan and DFG of Germany directed by both Dr. Cai and Dr. Nicolas Schuck at Max Planck Institute for Human Development. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate remotely with Dr. Quentin Huys at the University College London. The project will focus on understanding the contents and dynamics of spontaneous thoughts using fMRI decoding and natural tasks. In the later stage of the project, we also plan to examine the clinical implication of differences in spontaneous thoughts. Applicants with experience working on populations with mental disorders are also highly encouraged to apply. The working language is English. The working location is at The University of Tokyo, Japan.
Contract duration: renewed annually up for 3 years, with a probation period of 6 months.
