A post-doctoral position is available starting Spring/Summer 2019 in the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Children’s National Hospital System (Center for Neuroscience/Children’s Research Institute) and the George Washington University, Washington DC. This position involves the application of state-of-the-art functional and structural MRI imaging methods. The fellow will apply methods previously developed but not used in epilepsy as well as develop novel computational imaging methods. Our aim is to apply sophisticated approaches to answer clinical questions (e.g., identify seizure focus through fMRI; develop sensitive MRI metrics of cognitive reorganization; examine pre-post surgical changes structurally and functionally).
The fellow will have the opportunity to initiate his/her own research projects, mine existing data, and to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists fellows, graduate students, and research assistants.
The appointment is for one year, renewable for up to three years upon mutual agreement. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in engineering, neuroscience, biological science, or machine learning related field. Experience with computer programming and image processing is essential. Familiarity with fMRI analysis software including SPM, FSL, AFNI, and Freesurfer, as well as programming environments such as MATLAB or Python is highly desirable. Children’s National Hospital System is an equal opportunity employer. Full-time employees receive full benefits, competitive salaries, and excellent resources for career development.
To apply, please send a letter describing research interests and experience, curriculum vita, and names and contact information of three references to William D. Gaillard, MD at [log in to unmask] and cc Xiaozhen You, PhD at [log in to unmask]
