The laboratories of Dr. Tammie Benzinger and Dr. Beau Ances within the Imaging Cores of the Knight Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (http://www.alzheimer.wustl.edu/) at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine (https://medicine.wustl.edu/) are looking for multiple highly qualified applicants in the fields of Neuroscience, Psychology, Image Analysis, Computer Science, and Machine Learning to fill postdoctoral positions in the lab.

The Imaging Core represents an interdisciplinary team of faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students that oversee the processing and analysis of neuroimaging data from three longitudinal program projects studying Alzheimer’s disease (AD). 1) The Healthy Aging and Senile Dementia (HASD) project focuses on the transition from cognitive normality to symptomatic AD in older aged adults. 2) The Antecedent Biomarkers for AD: The Adult Children Study (ACS) has established a unique cohort of middle age individuals with half of the participants having a parent with AD. 3) The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer’s Network (DIAN, http://www.dian-info.org/) is an international, multi-site study of families with rare mutations that lead to AD at an early age.

All three studies follow individuals longitudinal using multimodal brain imaging including structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), resting-state functional MRI (rs-fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and positron emission tomography (PET) of β-amyloid, tau, and metabolism. Postdoctoral researchers will work using these techniques to characterize the evolution of pathobiology from preclinical to clinical phases of the disease. Strong interdisciplinary collaborations are also in place that will provide access to extensive clinical, neuropsychological, genetic, and cerebrospinal fluid data.

 General position requirements
• Completed Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, mathematics or a related field.
• Knowledge of neuroimaging techniques and experience with analysis software such as FSL, FreeSurfer, and SPM.
• A strong foundation in statistics and analytical packages such as R, SPSS, and SAS.
• Evidence of successful research in the form of published papers and conference presentations.
• Strong communication skills and writing ability
• Ability to work in a highly collaborative environment

Position Preferences
• Prior training studying aging and Alzheimer’s disease
• Programming and scripting skills to assist with the processing and analysis of large data sets.
• Experience with machine learning
• At least one position has additional emphasis on resting-state fMRI data analysis.
 
Position Specifics
Start Date: October 2017, but the start date is flexible
Salary: Will be commensurate with NIH pay scale
 
Please send inquires with a CV and names of references to: Dr. Brian Gordon at [log in to unmask]
