Brain Development Imaging Laboratory
Postdoctoral Position in Multimodal Imaging of Network Connectivity in Autism
Department of Psychology
San Diego State University
The Brain Development Imaging Laboratory (BDIL) at the Dept. of Psychology, San Diego State University, is offering 1-2 NIH-funded postdoctoral positions in functional connectivity MRI and related techniques. Current research at BDIL applies fMRI, functional connectivity MRI, diffusion-tensor and restriction spectrum imaging, MR spectroscopy, and volumetric MRI, as well as behavioral and neuropsychological measures to investigate biomarkers in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
BDIL (www.sci.sdsu.edu/bdil) collaborates with MR physics, EEG, MEG, and other groups at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and has full access to the UCSD Center for Functional MRI (http://fmri.ucsd.edu/), which houses two research-dedicated 3T human scanners. Work will include two newly funded NIH projects using combined MEG, fcMRI, and DTI as well as simultaneous EEG/fMRI acquisition for dynamic functional connectivity studies of ASD.
Applicants should have experience in functional MRI and functional connectivity MRI (data acquisition, preprocessing, analysis). Experience in data-driven techniques (graph theory, ICA, machine learning), in other imaging modalities (DTI, MRS; EEG, MEG), and in multimodal integration will be relevant, but not indispensable. Applicants who have experience in the study of children (especially those with autism) may be preferred.
