Tracking Code2465 Job Description

We are seeking a highly motivated and detail-oriented postdoctoral fellow with a track record in research applying magnetic resonance imaging and image processing. The central goal of the binational (Boston and Barcelona) CRCNS project is to advance our understanding of the computational and neural mechanisms underlying working memory as well as age-related changes to executive function. The successful candidate will lead analyses of structural MRI (T1 TFE scans), resting-state fMRI, and diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) brain scans with an overall focus on brain morphometry and connectivity. Data generated from the MRI scans will be correlated with behavioral, physiological, and other anatomical data across the adult life span. The appointment as a Boston University School of Medicine research fellow will be for at least 1 year with the possibility for extension based on performance.

Required Skills
  • Assist in the acquisition of MR data
  • Set up a pipeline for the analysis of the MRI scans
