The Functional Neuroimaging Research Line at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Rovereto (TN) is looking for a Postdoctoral scientist interested in studying the neural basis of functional connectivity disruption in autism.

Our research is aimed at identifying the general neural and cellular principles governing the assembly of brain connectivity, and its breakdown in developmental disorders such as autism. We address these questions by mapping functional connectivity alterations in people with autism and model organisms harboring autism-associated genetic etiologies. For reference to recent work relevant to this position, please see Gutierrez-Barragan et al., Current Biology (2019) and Bertero et al., Brain (2018).

The successful candidate must have a PhD in cognitive neuroscience, physics, neuroinformatics or equivalent, a proven record in the analysis of functional images of the mammalian brain, plus a sound knowledge of signal processing and statistical methods applied to brain imaging. We evaluate candidates that are proactive, highly-motivated, and who are willing to interact with both experimental and computational neuroscientists.

The IIT center in Rovereto is actively expanding its infrastructure for systems level neuroscience research, and is inserted both in the vibrant community of the IIT and that of CIMeC ( within the University of Trento, which specializes in cognitive neuroscience.

Please submit your application, including a detailed CV with a brief research statement, a cover letter and name and contacts of 2 referees, by email to, quoting “Postdoctoral position in neuroimaging - CB 78211” in the email subject.
