The Clinical Neuroimaging Lab (CNL) at CUNY School of Medicine of The City College of New York (PI: Junghoon John Kim, Ph.D.) is inviting applications for a 1-3 year postdoctoral fellowship. The lab’s current research focus is on neural mechanisms of natural recovery and neurorehabilitation in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Depending on research interests and skills, the fellow will be allowed to focus on one or more of the following research areas in TBI: 1) longitudinal multi-modal neuroimaging, 2) neuromodulation of cognitive impairment, 3) intervention of post-traumatic fatigue, and 4) biomarkers of axonal and microvascular injuries. Responsibilities may include: neuropsychological and neuroimaging data acquisition & analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing.

 

Located in the City College of New York’s Upper Manhattan campus, CNL benefits from the new research MRI facility at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center and collaboration with scientists and clinicians throughout NYC and beyond. CNL’s collaborators include Marom Bikson (City College), Kristen Dams-O’Connor (Mount Sinai), and Ramon Diaz-Arrastia (PPMC).

 

Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, psychology or a related field, have strong statistical, computer programming, and writing skills, and a demonstrated interest in studying patients with brain injury. Preference will be given to applicants who have expertise in either neuroimaging analysis or neuromodulation methods (tDCS, TMS), but not required.

 

This position is available immediately and will remain open until it is filled. To apply, please email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Prof. Junghoon J. Kim (jkim@med.cuny.edu). The City College of New York is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
