Postdoctoral Research - Diffusion MRI Image Analysis Methods Development (University of California, San Diego)

Wednesday 12th August 2020

Closing Date: 9-20-2020

Description: This position will focus on the development and validation of innovative neuroimaging methods for improved analysis of diffusion MRI brain imaging data. The role offers the opportunity to work with world leaders in neuroimaging software development and analysis, and to be part of a globally significant project.

The Center for Multimodal Imaging and Genetics at the University of California, San Diego invites applicants for a postdoctoral research position in diffusion MRI image analysis methods development. 

We are looking to grow our team to help build the next generation of image processing and analysis pipelines for the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study, an ongoing, NIH-funded study to follow ~12,000 children with longitudinal neuroanatomical and functional imaging across 21 sites within the US. The major goals of the study are to provide a publicly available data resource to examine the influences of genetics and environmental factors, including substance use, on brain and cognitive development. 

To learn more about our project, please see the ABCD Study press release, and the ABCD Study website.

A Ph.D. or equivalent degree
Research experience in advanced modeling for diffusion MRI
Experience with FreeSurfer, FSL, AFNI, and/or the HCP analysis pipeline
