The Brain Imaging, Networks, and Data mining lab (BIND) in the Group of Psychiatric Neuroscience at the University of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy) aims to discover the biological sources of differences between individuals that make them at risk of - or resilient to - psychiatric disorders. We investigate the association of genetic variability with brain phenotypes, with a focus on cognition and schizophrenia (for recent articles from the lab, see [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]). We have open or are about to open several calls (those already out have a link). Additionally, I am setting up a new lab at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) in Baltimore (MD), where further openings are available.

  1. Research Associate: structural/functional MRI integration (deadline: Dec 5th). Master’s Degree is required and coding experience (especially Matlab, Unix, and/or Python) is preferred. Italian proficiency C1 required. French proficiency is a plus because the scholarship foresees a 3-month stay in Toulouse, France. Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it + Roberta.Passiatore@uniba.it
  2. Research Associate: systematic observation of social dynamics in adolescents. Master’s Degree in Psychology is required. The official call will be out in December. Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it + Linda.Antonucci@uniba.it
  3. Research Associate: functional genomics. Master’s degree required. Coding in R or Python is required, experience with RNA sequencing and/or genetic data are a plus.  Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it + Christopher.Borcuk@uniba.it
  4. PhD student in Applied Neuroscience: functional genomics (deadline: Dec 19th). Master’s degree required. Coding in R and experience with RNA sequencing and/or genetic data are a plus. Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it + Christopher.Borcuk@uniba.it
  5. Assistant Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience: AI in human neuroscience. PhD and a significant publication record are required. Experience with human neuroscience data, whether at molecular or neuroimaging level, should be combined with AI approaches. Interested applicants should send a cover letter succinctly outlining a research statement along with the other documents. Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it
  6. Assistant Professor in Cognitive Neuroscience: Neuroimaging applications in psychosis and mood disorders. PhD and a significant publication record are required. Experience with human neuroscience and behavioral data is expected. Interested applicants should send a cover letter succinctly outlining a research statement along with the other documents. Write to: Giulio.Pergola@uniba.it
  7. Postdoc at the LIBD in Baltimore: human neuroscience (open until filled). PhD and at least two first-author papers in a peer-reviewed journal are required. See the complete description and application online.
  8. Postdoc at the LIBD in Baltimore: complex systems data science (open until filled). PhD and at least two first-author papers in a peer-reviewed journal are required. See the complete description and application online.

Successful candidates are motivated and research-oriented. It is essential to have a team-working attitude and motivation to fit into the group. Proficiency in Italian is not required. The expected starting dates are January-March 2023. We are looking for colleagues driven by the desire to understand the human brain and mind down to molecules so that we can generate actionable plans to empower young individuals, improve mental health prospects, and identify novel treatments.

The University of Bari Aldo Moro is one of the largest Italian universities (50.000 students, 1500 permanent professors and researchers, 1500 technicians, and administrative staff). Bari is a sunny city located by the sea and the third largest Italian city south of Rome. Given the living cost, the salaries for these positions guarantee a good quality of life. The group includes psychologists, biotechnologists, MDs, and is international oriented, with Marie Curie and Seal of Excellence awardees Dr. Pergola, Dr. Antonucci, Dr. Valt, and several other members trained for > one year in the UK, USA, and Germany, besides natives of Germany and the USA. The LIBD is a world-renown institution with cutting-edge resources, technology, and scientific community.

Please get in touch with the addressees in each position if you want more information on the ongoing projects. If you wish to apply for a position, please indicate the reference number of the position(s) you are interested in and send a CV and the name of two references.
