Postdoctoral Fellow in Advanced Machine Learning Techniques in Neuroscience

Thursday 11th August 2022

Organization Sunnybrook Research Institute
Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Title Postdoctoral Fellow in Advanced Machine Learning Techniques in Neuroscience
Email Address kimberly.allen@sunnybrook.ca
Closing Date: Open until filled
Description: The position requires working closely with the PIs Dr. Goubran (expertise in AI, computational neuroscience, neuroimaging), Dr. Black (internationally recognized expert in neurology, small vessel disease, cognition) and with graduate students, imaging analysts and software developers in the lab. The key responsibilities include but not limited to developing and applying novel computational approaches to challenging multimodal image and connectivity analyses, and patient outcome prediction problems (using structural, diffusion and functional MRI, and PET imaging data, along with clinical, genomic, and cognitive data). This will be performed in collaboration with our internal and external international collaborators (in USA, Switzerland, and Germany), including neurologists, radiologists, surgeons, psychologists, physicists, and computer scientists. This dynamic and collegial research environment provides opportunities to participate in pioneering techniques that will be used to understand and treat neurodegenerative and neurovascular disease. Our team also leads the computational and neuroimaging analyses for several cutting-edge trials at the Harquail centre for Neuromodulation at Sunnybrook, including those focused on Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and refractory obsessive-compulsive and major depressive disorders. There will be opportunities for multiple publications and conference presentations focused on novel computational tools for dementia, stroke, and neuroscience research.
