Postdoctoral Scholar or Research Staff (University of Southern California at Los Angeles)

Sunday 4th October 2020

Postdoc or Research Staff Position in Advanced MRI Neuroimaging at University of Southern California (USC)

A post-doctoral fellow or research staff position (depending on qualification) in
advanced MRI neuroimaging research is available at the Laboratory of FMRI
Technology (LOFT www.loft-lab.org) at the Stevens Neuroimaging and
Informatics Institute of USC (http://www.ini.usc.edu). The postdoc fellow will
be responsible for developing advanced MR pulse sequences and
reconstruction/post-processing algorithms. The focus of the research will be on
arterial spin labeled (ASL) perfusion and functional MRI at 3 and 7 Tesla with
clinical applications in neurodevelopment, cerebrovascular diseases,
neurodegenerative diseases and neuromodulation (e.g., tDCS).

Through the Laboratory of FMRI Technology (LOFT) and Laboratory of Neuro
Imaging (LONI) at the Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute at USC,
the postdoctoral fellow will have access to the ideal environment for
neuroimaging research. The Center of Image Acquisition (http://cia.ini.usc.edu)
houses a state-of-the-art 3T Prisma and 7T Terra MR scanners for human brain
imaging. The LONI image data archive (IDA) is one of the largest brain image
collections that hosts various imaging repositories such as ADNI. The
datacenter of LONI boasts 3,328 cores and 26 terabytes of aggregate memory
space for AI based brain image analysis and cloud computing for image
reconstruction.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Physics, Biophysics, Biomedical
Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields, and strong background in
medical imaging. Prior research experience (publications and programming
skills) in medical imaging is encouraged and a definite plus.
