The Baby-LINC Singapore Lab ( is looking for a talented Research Fellow in Neural Sociometrics. S/he will join a large-scale interdisciplinary research project, "A Sociometric AI Screening Tool to Risk-Stratify Infant Neurodevelopmental Trajectories (STARS)", led by PI Associate Professor Victoria Leong at NTU. This project aims to develop a novel, scalable screening tool to assess infant mental wellbeing and psychosocial health, and map translational pathways for clinical deployment and policy implementation in Singapore. STARS will collect and analyse longitudinal parent-infant "neural sociometric" data (0-3 yrs), combining innovations in two-person brain imaging (dyadic-EEG) with powerful AI machine-learning methods to risk-stratify early neurodevelopmental trajectories, with reference to cognitive and executive function outcomes.

The successful candidate will conduct cutting-edge social neuroscience research with infants and parents (involving dyadic-EEG acquisition and analysis), including children with (or at risk for) Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or infants born prematurely. You will join a dynamic and friendly international consortium as part of the Baby-LINC lab in Singapore and in Cambridge (UK).

Job Responsibilities
  • To lead the development of new robust computational models for assessment of parent-infant social attunement in neural, physiological and behavioural domains (neural sociometrics)
  • Help to oversee and train a diverse and talented research team within the lab
  • Liaise closely with collaborators in the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, Economics, Policy Policy, as well as in clinical practice
  • Contribute toward data collection efforts primarily in Singapore, involving over 200 parent-infant dyads
  • Lead in the publication of research outputs

Job Requirements

  • PhD in Psychology, Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Medical Sciences or related Technical and Computational fields
  • Strong technical and analytical skills in neural computational analysis, as demonstrated in relevant research publications
  • Experience with human psychological data collection and study design
  • Efficient, organised and self-motivated with the ability to work to tight deadlines
  • A good team player with strong interpersonal and communication skills

  • Experience in working with children (particularly infants) and families
  • Experience with EEG and other forms of neuroimaging data collection and analysis
  • Experience with paradigms for measurement of executive function, including memory, inhibition and cognitive flexibility
  • Experience with measurement and analysis of human social interactions

We regret to inform that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
