Description

Northwestern University’s Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease has a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroimaging of aging and dementia. The fellow will focus on analyzing MR as well as amyloid and tau PET data for our NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center (P30). The fellow may develop, adapt, implement, and/or optimize analysis pipelines for our newly funded AD Center Imaging Core, which will substantially contribute to imaging biomarker discoveries and enhance data sharing procedures. The fellow may participate in publications and presentations resulting from the work.

The fellow will work with Dr. Rogalski (Imaging Core Leader) and her collaborators Dr. Todd Parrish (Director of the Center for Translation Imaging) and Lei Wang (Director of the Applied Computational Anatomy Lab) at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

Requirements

Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, physics, psychology, bioengineering, or a related field. Experience with analysis of sMRI, DTI, rsfMRI, and/or PET is required, with a particular emphasis on multimodal approaches.

The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.
