The neuroimaging community at Temple University is a growing and diverse group. In support of this community, the university has built the Temple University Brain Research and Imaging Center (TUBRIC), a research-dedicated neuroimaging facility that houses a new Siemens Prisma 3-Tesla MRI scanner. The primary focus of the Center is to support behaviorally-motivated neuroimaging research, with both neurotypical and clinical populations.
We are immediately seeking a qualified candidate to fill our Supervisor of Neuroimaging full-time staff position. Reporting to the Director, and taking occasional direction from the Center���s Physicist, the Supervisor of Neuroimaging will work with the Center���s administrative staff to contribute to the day to day operations. S/he will supervise scanner operation, perform scans when needed, oversee safety and user training, and maintain the scanner and ancillary equipment. The Supervisor will consult with researchers regarding the collection, analysis and quality of data using TUBRIC���s scientific equipment, and act as a liaison to investigators. As the user base becomes more familiar with operations, the Supervisor of Neuroimaging will expand his/her role to include aspects of data management and processing, development of a standing subject pool, consulting with investigators on design issues, and may have the opportunity to write grants and advance an independent program of research. The Supervisor will perform other duties as assigned
