(Listed 01/14/21) Undergraduate Instructor positions, University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)

The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) is in immediate need of an instructor to teach 1 or 2 online sections (synchronous or asynchronous) of sociology undergraduate research methods beginning January 26th. 

One of our adjunct instructors was in a car accident and unable to teach for us this coming spring semester. We are seeking PhD students in Sociology or others with similar qualifications (minimum master's in sociology).

Our need is to staff 2 sections of our 4 credit "Methods of Social Research" (SOCY 300: 3 credits of lecture, 1 credit of lab in SPSS instruction). It will be 100% online and could be a hybrid of synchronous/asynchronous (only requirement is that the 1 credit lab 1x week is synchronous in a time slot already scheduled for the course--see below). 

Section 1: Tuesdays and Thursdays: 11:30am-1:15pm

Section 2: Mondays and Wednesdays: 4:00pm-5:45pm

Course Description: "Principles of social research, including examination of issues in research design, measurement, sampling and computer applications. Course considers both issues in the logic of science and practical problems of data collection."

Please email christine_mair [at] umbc.edu ASAP with your CV if you are interested to discuss compensation, structure, content, etc.

(Listed 11/05/20) Sports neuroscience postdoctoral fellowship, Stanford University School of Medicine 

Sports neuroscience postdoctoral fellowship available in the Division of Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, to study the neuroscience of cycling-based exercise using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). I hope that you will pass information about this opportunity on to your graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.   

The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to develop and contribute to an innovative project in sports neuroscience, investigating the contribution of cycling exercise to brain function and cognition. The fellow will be involved in the development and refinement of a cycling exercise program protocol, brain-computer interfaces and computational methods to process and analyze data across multiple scientific levels. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to investigate whether cycling exercise can be used as a tool to improve attention in children, adolescents and adults with cognitive function such as that associated with ADHD and aging, and the utility and feasibility of biometric tools to complement fNIRS. The trainee accepted into the program will work collaboratively with a program mentor (or mentors), who will help to define, enhance and monitor the trainee’s research program and career trajectory. The training program also offers didactic courses and activities (e.g., journal club and career lunches) as well as opportunities for diverse industry and academic collaborations to promote professional development. The Stanford School of Medicine is ranked #4 in the U.S. News & World Report rankings and had the highest NIH-funding-per-faculty ratio in the country. 

Requirements: M.D. or Ph.D. in neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, biomedical engineering, biostatistics, physics, psychology, kinesiology or a related/relevant field. Applicants should have (or anticipate having) a Ph.D. at the start of the fellowship and have research background in computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience and/or functional brain imaging. Applicants with experience conducting Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) studies and data analysis procedures will receive preference. Experience in sports neuroscience is also a plus. Responsibilities will include manuscript preparation and grant preparation. The successful applicant will have well-developed problem-solving skills, be able to manage several projects simultaneously, lead and mentor students and research assistants, have excellent computing as well as verbal and written English skills, and an aptitude for writing manuscripts and giving scientific presentations. 

To apply: Follow application instructions at https://cibsr.stanford.edu/training-careers/fellowship.html. Please contact Ms. Reiko Riley at reikor [at] stanford.edu () for additional guidance.
