Postdoctoral position in Neuroimaging and Aging at Albert Einstein College of Medicine
A postdoctoral research fellow position is available immediately in the departments of Neurology and Radiology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NY. The position will offer unique opportunities to utilize multi-modal neuroimaging data collected on normal and neurological populations that are well characterized in terms of cognitive, motor, and emotional function. The post-doctoral fellow will be expected to devote significant time and effort to writing empirical research articles. In addition, there will be opportunities to learn and become involved in collecting, processing, and analyzing novel neuroimaging data combining different methods (MRI, fNIRS, EEG).
We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly-motivated individual with experience in neuroimaging analysis methodologies. Experience and knowledge of aging and neurodegenerative diseases is desirable. Successful candidates will have a PhD in biomedical engineering, physics, computer science, cognitive neuroscience or related disciplines, and experience in conducting experiments and performing advanced data analysis with structural and/or functional MRI methods (e.g. DTI/NODDI, resting state). Candidates will have a solid background in relevant data processing packages (e.g., FSL, SPM, Freesurfer), programming in either Matlab, Python or similar environments and should be comfortable with data analysis in a Linux environment. The ideal candidate will also have familiarity with computational and statistical methods related to imaging analyses. A strong work ethic, excellent organizational and communication skills is expected as well as the ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment. Willingness to learn new techniques or software environments and a strong foundation in neuroanatomy is plus. Excellent writing skills, a good publication record, and ability to work independently will be strongly favorable.
