Work where every moment matters. 

Every day, almost 20,000 Hartford HealthCare employees come to work with one thing in common: Pride in what we do, knowing every moment matters here. We invite you to become part of Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network. 

The Institute of Living, one of the first mental health centers in the U.S., remains one of America’s leading not-for-profit centers for patient care, research and education in the fields of behavioral, psychiatric and addiction disorder. Through our dedicated, experienced and skilled clinicians, we provide patients and their families with the highest quality of personalized care. Programs are offered for children, adolescents and adults struggling with mental illness as well as offering services specializing in Anxiety, Eating Disorders, and Geriatric Services. 

The Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center is seeking to fill a postdoctoral researcher/fellow position in the area of obesity/cognitive neuroscience. The fellow will join a lab conducting research dealing with neuroimaging (MRI, DTI, fMRI) in both healthy and psychiatric populations. The major area of specialization is use of food -related fMRI tasks to predict post-bariatric surgical long-term outcome. Applicants should have either a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, or related field, or have completed the course requirements for their PhD and be within 6 months of receipt of their doctorate. They should have an understanding of fMRI statistical methods and experimental design, and promising research experience. The ideal candidate will come from a doctoral program that has provided basic fMRI data analysis skills, solid theoretical understanding of cognitive neuroscience, and working knowledge of Linux, Matlab (programming experience preferred), and similar systems to conduct fMRI analyses, or to have an existing track record with fMRI analysis. In addition to opportunities to develop their own program of research compatible with the lab mission, the postdoctoral fellow will have access to several large archival neuroimaging datasets, training in sophisticated data analysis techniques (i.e., independent component analysis, multi-modal analysis, etc.), and access to the center’s data collection and analysis resources (e.g., fMRI, sMRI, DTI, EEG, genotyping, neuropsychological assessment). The fellowship is open for an initial two years, with an option to renew.
