POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP AND RESEARCH ASSISTANT POSITIONS AVAILABLE IN NEUROIMAGING
THOMAS JEFFERSON UNIVERSITY/ SIDNEY KIMMEL
MEDICAL COLLEGE, PHILA., PA.
The Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Medical College has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Neuroimaging focusing on both clinical brain mapping and primary cognitive neuroscience investigations. This position is funded by a new 5 year NIH R01 grant aimed at developing multi-modal neuroimaging predictors of cognitive and seizure outcomes following brain surgery. The emphasis in our neuroimaging program is on cognitive and behavioral network organization and plasticity in neurologic disorders such as epilepsy. The lab focuses on the use of advanced network neuroscience measures to understand seizure networks and cognitive reorganization in epilepsy, and has had recent publications in Brain, Neurology, and Epilepsia. The lab is part of the Jefferson Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, a large internationally-known epilepsy surgery program. Presurgical brain mapping studies are undertaken (MRI volumetrics, task-fMRI, resting state functional connectivity, diffusion imaging, neuropsychological assessment, electrophysiological recordings/electrocortical stimulation), as well as post-surgical neuroimaging studies investigating clinical, cognitive, and behavioral outcomes. The pre-surgical brain mapping studies are conducted on a regular basis, utilized in image-guided surgery, and then made available for research. Studies in brain recovery and the cognitive reorganization of language and memory functions are emphasized, utilizing rich multi-modal datasets for the investigation of both cognitive and pathologic (e.g., seizure) networks. Thomas Jefferson University provides a rich interdisciplinary research environment with grand rounds, seminars, case conferences, and opportunities to collaborate with faculty across departments such as neurosurgery and radiology. Successful applicants must have a strong background in image processing and analysis using programs such as MATLAB, SPM, and FSL with a strong interest in clinical neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience. Applicants must have a PHD or MD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, statistics, neurology, neuropsychology, radiology, or related field.
