Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (PRF) in imaging genomics
The PRF plans and conducts research experiments by laboratory and safety protocols; independently performs non-routine and complex research procedures and techniques; selects modifies or adapts equipment and procedures to specific research needs, and supervises other research personnel as assigned.
Our lab is engaged in a wide variety of human and, through collaborations, animal genetic studies to identify and characterize genomic variants contributing to complex neuropsychiatric disorders and to elucidate both normal and abnormal genetic activity in the brain from pre-natal development onwards. The PRF will be an integral part of our team and will be responsible for the acquisition and analysis of neuroimaging data from human subjects, both with and without diagnoses of psychiatric illness. This will include multiple modalities, including fMRI, resting state fMRI, and diffusion tensor imaging (dTI). Experience with imaging analysis software packages, such as SMP, Freesurfer, Matlab, and FSL is desirable.
The successful applicant will be able to function independently, work on more than one project at a time in a team setting, and lead/mentor students and research assistants, as well as demonstrate an aptitude for preparing manuscripts and grant submissions.
