Ph.D. Student in Social Neuroscience and Aging, The Neuroscience of Mind & Behavior Lab at Indiana University, Bloomington

November 07, 2022

The Neuroscience of Mind & Behavior Lab at Indiana University, Bloomington, directed by Dr. Anne Krendl, is looking to recruit a Ph.D. student in the Fall 2022 cycle (to start Fall 2023). Current research in the lab focuses on social cognition and aging, using both behavioral and network neuroscience approaches. The lab currently has two NIA-funded projects examining how social cognitive aging changes in healthy and pathological (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease) aging, and how these changes may relate to older adults’ social connectedness (personal social networks).

Research in the lab is interdisciplinary, and spans the fields of social neuroscience, network neuroscience, social networks, and social cognitive aging. More information on our research can be found at https://krendlab.sitehost.iu.edu/. Previous programming (e.g., R, Python, or Matlab) and neuroimaging experience (e.g., network neuroscience) are desired, but not necessary. The graduate program at I.U. offers extensive coursework in these topics, each taught by renowned experts in the field. Bloomington is a vibrant multi-cultural college town, offers immediate access to state and national parks, and enjoys a low cost of living compared to nearby cities (18% lower than Chicago).

Students may apply through the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences doctoral program (https://iugraduate2023.liaisoncas.com/applicant-ux/#/login). Interested applicants are welcome to contact Dr. Krendl () for additional information.

Indiana University is an Equal Opportunity Employer with a commitment to racial, cultural, and gender diversity. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
