*Postdoctoral Fellow in Multimodal Brain Imaging of Amyotrophic Lateral
Sclerosis (ALS)*

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). The postdoc will be under
the supervision of Professors Yasser Iturria-Medina (McGill University) and
Sanjay Kalra (University of Alberta), 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/ <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/
<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 background in brain imaging and Matlab.
Experience in neurodegeneration and brain computational analysis 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.
