*Postdoctoral Position: Examining differences in neural profiles in males &
females with EEG+fMRI*

*The Lab*
Clinical EEG & Cognitive Research Laboratory, Institute of Mental Health
Research, affiliated with the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, ON, Canada).

Our laboratory uses clinical electroencephalography (EEG) and neuroimaging
techniques (e.g. functional magnetic resonance imaging), coupled with
various clinical and cognitive assessment tools, to better understand
mental illness. We also assess the effects of various interventions (e.g.
exercise, stimulation therapies, drugs) on neural, clinical and cognitive
features. Importantly, we attempt to characterize neural profiles that may
be predictive of treatment response. Much of our laboratory’s work has
focused on depression. However, we also examine brain features in
individuals with schizophrenia, ADHD, dysfunctional anger as well as
non-psychiatric populations.

*The Position*
The postdoctoral fellow will be tasked to conduct an NSERC-funded research
study examining gender differences in neural profiles between males/females
using simultaneous EEG+fMRI. Neural features will be examined in relation
to biological measures (estrogen, testosterone and cortisol).
The selected postdoctoral fellow will also have an opportunity to assist in
the acquisition/data analyses on one of two projects in clinical samples
(depressed, schizophrenia). Within this role, he/she will be expected to
assist Dr. Jaworska in the mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students
in the laboratory, in manuscript preparation and in grant writing.

*Academic qualifications and requirements:*
• PhD in neuroscience, psychology, biomedical science or related
• Demonstrated experience in human research and/or cognitive or
computational neuroscience.
Required: Neuroimaging analyses (preferred: SPM, CONN) or EEG analyses.
Some computational neuroscience experience preferred.
Optimal: Experience in simultaneous EEG+fMRI acquisition & analyses.

*Timeline and application process:*
Application deadline: open until the position is filled
Fellowship start date: Late fall 2019
Submission process: Documents should be emailed to Dr. Natalia Jaworska (
natalia.jaworska at theroyal.ca)

*Application checklist:*
1) A one (1) page research statement demonstrating fit with the program
described above.
2) Current academic CV demonstrating research excellence and a capacity for
leadership in the domain.
3) Contact information for two references from academic supervisors
/current employers.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship is a stipend valued at a starting salary of
$40,000 per year, commensurate on experience
