Beschreibung: The Division of Psychological and Social Medicine and Developmental Neurosciences invites applications for a Research Associate (PhD Student) (f/m/x) PSM0924431 within the Translational Developmental Neuroscience Section. The line of research of the group focuses on the biological mechanisms that promote the development and maintenance of eating- and weight disorders as assessed by means of neuroimaging techniques (MRT) and other neurophysiological, neuropsychological and biochemical methods as well as ecological momentary assessment.

Potential research projects within this role may explore cognitive and affective mechanisms
underlying eating disorders. These investigations might utilize advanced methodologies such as
digital phenotyping, eye tracking, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and analysis of
endocrine and metabolic influences. For the current position most of these projects are part of
collaborative worldwide efforts under the Eating Disorders Working Group within the ENIGMA
Consortium, where the principal investigator is a co-leader. Therefore, this position provides a
unique opportunity for the selected candidate to participate in short-term stays abroad and
collaborate with globally renowned experts in neuroimaging research, including the central
ENIGMA team at USC. Additionally, the candidate will be involved not only in analyzing data but
also in the coordination of the analysis of data from other participating sites within the ENIGMA
consortium. Additional details about this initiative are available on the ENIGMA Consortium's
website (https://enigma.ini.usc.edu/ongoing/enigma-eating-disorders/). Finally, the successful
candidate will be involved in presenting the research results at international conferences and in
publishing them in scientific journals.

Alongside research work, the selected candidate will participate in the instruction and supervision
of interns and medical students within the project. Through the International Research Training
Group (IRTG) 2773, in which the working group is involved, there are many others learning and training opportunities, also in structured form if desired (graduate academy).
The position offers the opportunity for further scientific training (doctorate) and Acquisition of
medical psychological specialist knowledge as part of teaching in the course Human medicine.
