Postdoctoral Scholar in Neuroimaging of Epilepsy and Brain Tumors at UC San Diego

Seeking a full-time postdoctoral scholar to work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists on projects related to the use of multimodal imaging for improving cognitive and health outcomes in patients with epilepsy and brain tumors.

Our team includes full-time faculty from Psychiatry, Radiology, Neurosciences, and Radiation Oncology. This group of researchers and clinical investigators are primarily focused on integrating research imaging tools and genetic information into the clinical work flow to directly and immediately improve patient outcomes. The scholar will work closely with other postdoctoral fellows, medical residents, graduate students, research assistants, and faculty members to help develop methods, analyze structural, diffusion, and functional (fMRI) imaging data, prepare manuscripts and assist with grant applications.

The fellow should have strong programming and writing skills, experience in neuroimaging or a related field, and a strong interest in pursuing an academic career path. Applicants with a strong background in bioengineering, cognitive science, and/or experience in machine learning and other multidimensional data integration approaches are encouraged to apply.

This position is located at the University of California, San Diego Center for Multimodal Imaging and Genetics (CMIG), which is located on the East Medical Campus in La Jolla, CA in the Altman CTRI. The fellow will share an office with another postdoctoral fellow and have direct access to two 750 GE systems.
