Post Doc in Neurobehavioral Research

Postdoc position (fMRI) in the Center for Neurobehavioral Research, Boys Town National Research Hospital.


The Center for Neurobehavioral Research (CNR) at Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, is seeking a full-time post-doctoral fellow for the Neurobehavioral Development Study, designed to determine neural profiles associated with alcohol abuse and psychiatric symptom sets (externalizing, mood and anxiety) in adolescence (PI: James Blair). The Neurobehavioral Development Study employs state-of-the-art, multi-modal neurodevelopment measurement in adolescents including fMRI.


The postdoctoral fellow will be an integral member of the scientific team and will have rich opportunities to publish, drawing on intake and treatment efficacy data from the Neurobehavioral Development Study and multiple other neurodevelopmental studies from across the CNR. The fellow will also be encouraged and supported to develop supplementary studies via the NIH NRSA and/or K Award mechanisms in addition to smaller foundation grants. The postdoctoral fellow will develop and implement cutting-edge fMRI analysis tools and will be primarily responsible for dissemination of findings (e.g. publications and conference proceedings).


The CNR and Boys Town National Research Hospital provides an ideal training environment for postdoctoral fellows with extensive opportunities to publish and access to exceptional resources to facilitate research growth with the chance to work with national and international collaborators on projects. Omaha and the local surrounding areas offer an affordable and family-friendly community with rich center resources.


The position requires a PhD or MD/PhD in neuroscience, psychology or a related specialty. The candidate will ideally have experience in computer programming consistent with fMRI.


The start date for the postdoctoral fellowship is flexible and may extend 3 or more years. To apply please send a cover letter, C.V. and names and contact information of two references to:

About us:

The Center for Neurobehavioral Research was established in 2016 to help improve the care of children through a better understanding of the neurobiology of mental health. With a new, dedicated and state-of-the-art 3 Tesla scanner as well as fNIRS capability, the CNR is assesses approximately 300 adolescents and a comparable number of young children annually on a large neuroimaging battery, including tasks indexing emotion processing, decision-making and response control, to determine dysfunction in specific neuro-cognitive systems that underpin different forms of impaired mental health. In addition to in-home family services and residential treatment centers, Boys Town provides the Family Home ProgramSM, a treatment foster-case program serving over 400 youth annually on the Boys Town campus in Omaha, Nebraska. Youth participating in the Family Home ProgramSM are scanned before and after treatment completion to determine treatment response. The CNR is also involved in the assessments of other interventions – both pharmacological and psychosocial. The CNR, therefore, offers a unique opportunity to study mechanisms underlying mental health issues in large samples, with a translational focus. The CNR provides a vigorous and highly collaborative research environment in which post-doctoral fellows participate in team-based projects.
