Description

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

This individual will work with Emily Rogalski (Imaging Core Leader) and her collaborators 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.
