Postdoctoral Position in the Memory Modulation Lab at Boston College

The Memory Modulation Lab at Boston College (PI: Maureen Ritchey) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher for an NSF-funded project investigating the cognitive and neural factors that predict the contents and specificity of episodic memory. The project incorporates behavioral and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) methods, including network analyses, multivariate pattern analyses, and assessment of individual differences. The lab is located in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Boston College, and fMRI research will be conducted at the nearby Boston University Cognitive Neuroimaging Center, which houses a research-dedicated 3T Siemens Prisma scanner.

Requirements for the position include: a Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, or a related field, experience with cognitive neuroscience methods (especially fMRI), and demonstrable skills in one or more programming languages (e.g., R, Python, Matlab). The successful applicant will have a promising publication record and an interest in learning and memory processes. The start date is flexible, but ideally will take place in summer 2022. Salary is based on the NIH payscale.

To apply, please send a cover letter and CV detailing your research experience, qualifications, and names of three references to Dr. Maureen Ritchey, maureen.ritchey@bc.edu.
