Postdoctoral Research Scholar Positions, Multimodal Imaging Laboratory,
University of California, San Diego

The Multimodal Imaging Laboratory (MMIL) at the University of California,
San Diego invites applications for multiple postdoctoral research scholar
positions under the direction of Dr. Anders Dale. The successful candidates
will join a multi-disciplinary team of scientists, programmers, and support
staff addressing a variety of neuroscience questions using multimodal brain
imaging, electrophysiology, behavior, and genetics.  An important component
of the work done at MMIL, and the primary role for the currently announced
positions, is the development and improvement of methods for the analysis of
neuroimaging data.  Postdoctoral researchers will receive training in brain
imaging and methods development, and will be encouraged to develop their own
research projects.

The primary areas of development will include:

   1. Segmentation of pediatric brain scans
   2. Tractography and diffusion MRI analysis and modeling
   3. Multispectral lesion segmentation and quantification
   4. Longitudinal registration & analysis of contrast change with brain
   development, aging, and disease
   5. EEG/MEG/fMRI integration and modeling
   6. Resting state fMRI & ASL analysis, quantification within
   anatomically-defined ROIs
   7. Validation of non-invasive imaging measures using *ex vivo* histology
   and stereology

Applicants for the position must have completed relevant Ph.D. research
activities within the past five years. Applications from many disciplines
may be considered, and the position is open to qualified international

Experience or expertise in the following areas is highly desired:

   1. computer programming experience (MATLAB, C/C++, Python, OpenGL,
   2. neuroimaging analysis methods (especially FreeSurfer)
   3. structural MRI, DTI, fMRI, ASL
   4. MRI physics and/or pulse programming
   5. biophysical modeling of neuronal circuits and imaging signals

This posting is for 2-year appointments beginning immediately. Salary will
be consistent with the NIH/NRSA levels in accordance with the University of
California, San Diego policies for Postdoctoral trainees. Compensation
includes full staff benefits, including health insurance, and vacation time.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
