The Laboratory of Manpreet Singh, MD, MS, at Stanford University ( is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellow position focused on identifying biological and environmental risk factors, understanding disease pathophysiology and developmental outcomes, and developing new treatments for mood disorders that begin in childhood.

This opportunity is open to candidates interested in accruing clinical hours toward licensure while enhancing scientific expertise. Prior publications in related areas and experience with analysis of neuroimaging data is required. In addition, strong programming skills are preferred. Duties will include leading a team to implement existing grants, conceptualizing and writing new grant ideas, publishing manuscripts, and contributing to posters and talks. Candidates will administer diagnostic assessments and conduct clinical interviews; pilot MRI scans; and analyze multimodal neuroimaging, behavioral, cognitive, serum, and salivary data. Laboratory and Stanford resources include research-dedicated 3T MRI scanners, Clinical and Translational Research Facilities for genomic and other laboratory assay collection, biostatistical and computational core, and an interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment.
