We are seeking a highly motivated and detail-oriented postdoctoral fellow
with a track record in research applying magnetic resonance imaging and
image processing. The central goal of the binational (Boston and Barcelona)
CRCNS project is to advance our understanding of the computational and
neural mechanisms underlying working memory as well as age-related changes
to executive function. The successful candidate will lead analyses of
structural MRI (T1 TFE scans), resting-state fMRI, and diffusion spectrum
imaging (DSI) brain scans with an overall focus on brain morphometry and
connectivity. Data generated from the MRI scans will be correlated with
behavioral, physiological, and other anatomical data across the adult life
span. This work will be part of a highly interdisciplinary project
(psychophysics, imaging, anatomy, electrophysiological experiments,
innovative data analysis and computational modeling) and includes the
possibility for extended research stays at the Center for Mathematical
Research in Barcelona, Spain (Wimmer lab
<https://sites.google.com/view/wimmerlab>).

The appointment as a Boston University School of Medicine postdoctoral
fellow (supervised by Jennifer Luebke
<http://www.bumc.bu.edu/anatneuro/our-people/faculty/luebke/> and Ronald J.
Killiany <http://www.bumc.bu.edu/anatneuro/our-people/faculty/killiany/>)
will be for at least 1 year with the possibility for extension based on
performance.

REQUIRED SKILLS:
*Assist in the acquisition of MR data
*Set up a pipeline for the analysis of the MRI scans
*Manage image sets/data and perform quality assurance on both
*Coordinate data sharing between collaborating laboratories in Boston and
Barcelona
*Preparation of manuscripts and scientific presentations

*For questions or informal inquiries contact: Dr. Jennifer Luebke at *
