Tue Oct 2 01:34:22 CEST 2018


We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral student, for
joining the *Neuroinformatics
for Personalized Medicine* lab (NeuroPM) at the Montreal Neurological
Institute (McGill University, Montreal, Canada) and the Kalra lab for
Neuroimaging and ALS Research (University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada).
The postdoc will be under the supervision of Professors Yasser
Iturria-Medina and Sanjay Kalra, and will be expected to collaborate with
multiple associated groups. The project, for one year and potentially
extendable for another year, includes the analysis of direct multifactorial
brain interactions and intra-brain network spreading of aberrant effects in
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

The NeuroPM lab (http://www.neuropm-lab.com/) is affiliated with the
Healthy brain for Healthy Lives (HBHL) initiative (*https://www.mcgill.ca/hbhl/
<https://www.mcgill.ca/hbhl/>*), the Ludmer Center
(http://ludmercentre.ca/), and
the McConnell Brain Imaging Center (https://www.mcgill.ca/bic/),
involving computationally
intensive and interdisciplinary research on the brain. The MNI is an
internationally renowned institution, characterized by the integration of
research and patient care. The Kalra Lab (
http://www.ualberta.ca/ALS/research/) has the mission of improving our
understanding of ALS biology through brain imaging and translational
research. It is the central coordinating site for the Canadian ALS
Neuroimaging Consortium (CALSNIC), a multicenter research platform for the
collection of harmonized imaging and behavioural data.

Interested candidates should have a solid background in brain imaging and
Matlab. Experience in neurodegeneration and brain computational modeling
will be an asset. Interested persons should send their CV, a cover letter
stating research interests, and two reference letters. The competition will
remain open until the position is filled.
