POST-DOCTORAL ASSOCIATE
Neuropsychology and Physiology of Flavor and Feeding

The Neuropsychology and Physiology of Flavor and Feeding Laboratory at the John B Pierce Laboratory, a nonprofit interdisciplinary research institute affiliated with Yale University, is conducting a search for a part time research post-doctoral associate. The applicant will work in a multidisciplinary research team investigating how sensory, metabolic, and neural signals are integrated to determine food choices and on how the dysregulation of these systems contribute to the development of obesity, diabetes, and cognitive impairment. The main research project the applicant would work on is a longitudinal study in prediabetic youth that combines neuropsychological, fMRI, metabolic, and blood profile assessments to test the role of peripheral glycemia in neurocognitive performance.

Primary duties will include subject recruitment, running neuroimaging experiments of ingestive behavior, conducting neuropsychological assessments, managing human investigation committee protocols, overseeing and coordinating patient recruitment, maintaining and organizing incoming data, and performing preliminary quality control checks.

The John B. Pierce Laboratory offers competitive salary, health insurance, and other benefits.
