Postdoc opportunities at Haskins Laboratories



The LandiLab (PI: Nicole Landi, PhD) at Haskins Laboratories (which is closely affiliated with Yale and the University of Connecticut) is seeking to hire a postdoctoral research fellow. This postdoc will join a project investigating the neurobiological basis (brain structure, genetics) of reading. The successful applicant will be responsible for conducting and interpreting analyses of neuroimaging data (structural and diffusion imaging data). This position is part of a multi-site project (Haskins Laboratories, University of Houston, Baylor College of Medicine) that is aggregating and analyzing neuroimaging and genotyping data from multiple locations to explore gene-brain-behavior relationships. Applicants must have a background conducting research using MRI. The ideal candidate will also have experience with diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) and experience with advanced statistical analysis of imaging data (e.g. imaging-genetic analyses, Bayesian methods, machine learning).

New England Research on Dyslexia (NERDY) Society Meeting

The 3rd annual meeting of the New England Research on Dyslexia (NERDY) Society will be held on October 21st, 2017, at the University of Connecticut.

he New England Research Group on Dyslexia is an interdisciplinary community of researchers, educators, clinicians, and policy experts, whose work aims at elucidating the biological, including psychological, and social underpinnings of Developmental Dyslexia and related disorders with the objective of improving prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment/intervention and social support (including legal, political, and public health) associated with this learning disability.

The NERDY community draws broadly from different academic settings (schools, universities, research institutes) in New England to bring together scholars with a common commitment both to empirical research and to multidisciplinary dialogue.
