RESEARCH PROGRAMMER POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THE CHILD MIND INSTITUTE
The Child Mind Institute (CMI; http://www.childmind.org/) is currently recruiting two research programmers interested in the study of Connectomics and its applications to neuroscience and psychiatry. Responsibilities for these research programmer positions will include the design, implementation, and support of software for the analysis of functional and structural MRI data obtained from typically developing, healthy aging and clinical populations. Analytic approaches will focus on data-exploration with univariate and multivariate techniques emerging from machine-learning theory, statistics, graph theory, and bioinformatics, as well as hypothesis testing. Informatics support for data-distribution efforts will also be required, as part of the CMI's expressed mission is to openly share data and analytic approaches with the scientific community in order to help accelerate the pace of science.
Research programmers will work as part of a multidisciplinary team focused on the integration of findings from a broad spectrum of imaging approaches (e.g., resting state functional MRI, simultaneous EEG/fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging, cortical thickness and voxel-based morphometry). Flexibility exists for the development and publication of novel analytic approaches, visualization techniques and algorithms.
Required Education and Experience: - BA/BS degree in computer science, software engineering, or related field required (advanced degrees preferred). Alternative degree fields will be considered/accepted if accompanied by equivalent experience (depending on nature and depth of experience as it relates to relevant projects).
- Two years related work experience.
- Extensive experience in Perl, BASH, Python or similar scripting language.
- Extensive background in C / C++ languages.
- Working knowledge of UNIX/LINUX environments.
Anticipated start date: immediate
Salary: competitive and commensurate with experience/educational qualifications.
