The Department of Psychiatry at the Renaissance School of Medicine is seeking an innovative and technically-skilled investigator to establish a research program focused on the development, validation, and implementation of digital technologies for individuals with mental illness.

The ideal candidate will be able to utilize artificial intelligence methods for impactful research and to advance real-world clinical practice. Resources for equipment, space, and additional research support are available to support this important initiative. Synergistic collaboration with other faculty in the department (e.g., neuroimaging, epidemiology) and across the institution (e.g., computer science, biomedical informatics, psychology etc.) is encouraged.

Stony Brook Psychiatry is home to a world-class, interdisciplinary team of investigators with robust, extramurally funded research programs. Current focus areas include schizophrenia, depression, dementia, and substance use disorders. The Department also leads multiple large cohort studies for understanding normal and psychopathological developmental trajectories. Stony Brook maintains a broad range of pre-clinical and clinical research cores, including fMRI, PET, ECT, and TMS and the full range of clinical psychiatric inpatient and outpatient services. Department faculty collaborate with members of the Institute for AI-Driven Discovery and Innovation, an interdisciplinary collaboration of 19 labs from computer science, neuroscience, biomedical informatics, and physics.
