Position

Several postdoctoral research associate positions are immediately available at the Multimodal Imaging in Neuro Disorders (MIND) laboratory of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The successful candidates will focus on developing novel infant-centric MRI tools that will be critical for gaining insights into the working mechanisms of the human brain in the first years of life.

Candidate Requirements

We are seeking highly motivated individuals who have demonstrated academic excellence, including publications in first-class journals and conferences. The candidate should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or related fields. Experience in diffusion MRI, compressed sensing, machine learning, and numerical optimization is highly desirable. Competence in programming beyond MATLAB (good command of Linux, C/C++, CMake, ITK, VTK, etc.) is essential. The candidate should ideally have a strong background in MR data processing, analysis, and reconstruction.

Research Environment

The successful candidate will be part of a diverse group including radiologists, psychologists, physicists, biostatisticians, and computer scientists, and will build upon the group's extensive foundation on medical image analysis. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment such as a PET-MR scanner and a 7T whole-body MRI scanner.

Contact

The application should include a cover letter indicating research interest areas, curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references. For more information or to submit your application, please contact Dr. Pew-Thian Yap (ptyap@med.unc.edu).
