Postdoctoral Position in Baby Brain Mapping

UNC-Chapel Hill
Location: 
Chapel Hill, NC, USA
Job Type: 
Full Time
Closing Date: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Postdoctoral research associate and visiting student/scholar positions are available in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill). Our current focuses are to better understand the dynamic development of brain structure, function and connectivity during critical early postnatal stages, via computational analysis of high-quality multimodal neuroimaging data acquired by UNC/UMN Baby Connectome Project. We are seeking highly motivated individuals who have extensive research experience in neuroimaging analysis (e.g., structural, diffusion or functional MRI) and demonstrated academic excellence, including publications in first-class journals and conferences. The postdoctoral candidate should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Neuroscience, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or related fields. Good command of programming tools including Matlab, C++, Linux, and scripting are necessary to carry out the research work in this group. The candidate will support our efforts either in advancing neuroimaging analysis technologies or in neuroscience applications.

The successful candidate will be part of a diverse group including neuroscientists, radiologists, psychologists, physicists, biostatistician, and computer scientists, and will build upon the group's extensive foundation on neuroimaging analysis (http://www.unc.edu/~gangl). If interested, please email resume to Dr. Gang Li (gang_li@med.unc.edu).
