Post-doctoral Fellowship40.714353 -74.005973
POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THE CHILD MIND INSTITUTE
The Child Mind Institute (CMI; http://www.childmind.org/) is currently recruiting post-doctoral fellows interested in the application of discovery-science based approaches to the study of human brain function and the characterization of brain development and maturation in clinical and non-clinical populations. The overarching goal of our work is to identify objective imaging-, phenotypic- and genetic-based markers of pathology, that will eventually serve to facilitate the detection of psychiatric illness and/or guide clinicians in the selection of treatments and determination of treatment response. Fellows will be expected to take a multidisciplinary approach to their work, drawing from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, engineering, mathematics, neuropsychology). In order to facilitate this process, they will work as part of a multidisciplinary team, integrating findings obtained from a variety of imaging approaches including: resting state functional MRI, simultaneous EEG/fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging, cortical thickness, volumetrics.
Qualifications: The minimum qualifications for a successful candidate include:
- completed PhD in biomedical engineering, cognitive neuroscience, clinical neuroscience, clinical psychology, computer science, mathematics, neuropsychology or related fields
- significant prior neuroimaging experience with functional MRI, EEG and/or MEG
- strong skills in the usage of one or more common functional neuroimaging packages (e.g., AFNI, FSL, or SPM)
- programming experience in C/C++, Matlab, Python or similar platforms is not required, but is a plus
Anticipated start date: fall/winter, 2011
