Postdoctoral Fellowship: Multimodal Neuroimaging



*Description:*

A postdoctoral position pursuing multimodal imaging is available with the
TRANSCEND Research Program (www.transcendresearch.org) at the Martinos
Center for Biomedical Imaging in Charlestown, MA (www.martinos.org) which is
affiliated with the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard and MIT.  There
is a second location at a clinical site, the MGH-affiliated Lurie Family
Center for Autism, where we have a 128 lead EGI EEG in a shielded room as
well as a photogrammetry machine and autonomic monitoring equipment, and
will shortly have a near-infrared tissue spectrometer (NIRS) machine.



The program’s emphasis is on pathophysiologically oriented brain research
and application of advanced imaging acquisition and analysis techniques to
neurological and sensory aspects of autism spectrum disorders.  Emphasis
will be on MRI (DTI, spectroscopy, morphometry, ASL), on co-registering EEG
and MEG with MRI, and on studying neurovascular coupling with EEG and NIRS.
This position will involve analysis of existing multimodal imaging data and
collection of new data.  It will involve working closely with a
multidisciplinary
team and with children, and will also involve some research oriented
analysis of data collected for clinical purposes.  The age range of our
subjects is primarily from early infancy to mid-adolescence, with some
additional studies including young adults. An ample opportunity will also be
provided to the candidate to self-explore and lead research.



*Requirements:*

Candidates must have PhD in neuroscience, physics, biomedical engineering,
electrical engineering, computer science or other related fields. Candidates
without this training and experience need not apply.  Prior experience in
MRI analysis and EEG signal processing is required. Salary will be
consistent with Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
policies for Postdoctoral trainees and will range between $45,000 to $55,000
depending upon qualifications and experience. Compensation also includes
full staff benefits, including health insurance, and vacation time.



*Contact:*

Interested applicants may send a CV and statement of interest addressing
background and specific pertinence of the candidate’s interest to Dr. Martha
R. Herbert at mherbert1 at partners.org<http://us.mc453.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=mherbert1@partners.org>and
