We seek a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to develop and apply quantitative methods to understand the underlying patterns of neuroimaging-genetics associated with neuropsychiatric disorders.    The main research areas will include: (1) multi-modal imaging data analysis; (2) GWAS; (3) genetics, imaging, brain disorder mediation analysis; and (4) graph based deep learning to explain phenotypic variance. The Postdoctoral Fellow will work under the joint supervision of Dr. Shuo Chen (https://www.umdbright.com/). The candidates will be supported by a strong collaborative team who are world-known experts in multimodal brain imaging and genetics for neuropsychiatric research and have access to the large-sample imaging-genetics data (both preprocessed and raw) from the consortiums including ENIGMA, HCP, ABCD, and UK Biobank. The position will be held in the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

The candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree in a quantitative field, such as statistics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, human genetics, computer science,   or a closely related area. Candidates with an interest in imaging and/or genetics data analysis and machine learning are preferred. Candidates with strong computational skills (proficient in one of the programming languages R, Matlab, and Python and experience with the high-performance cluster) are especially encouraged to apply.

Organization

Welcome to the Baltimore campus of the University of Maryland, founded in 1807 along a ridge in what was then called Baltimore Town. Today, this 61-acre research and technology complex encompasses 65 buildings in West Baltimore near the Inner Harbor.

The University is Maryland's only public academic health, human services, and law center. Seven professional and graduate schools train the majority of the state's physicians, nurses, dentists, lawyers, social workers, and pharmacists.

Under the leadership of President Jay A. Perman, MD, the University is a leading partner in the redevelopment of the west side of Baltimore. The University of Maryland BioPark, which opened in October 2005, promotes collaborative research opportunities and bioscience innovation.

Sponsored research totaled $567.1 million in Fiscal Year 2010. With 6,349 students and 6,717 faculty members and staff, the University is an economic engine that returns more than $15 in economic activity for every $1 of state general funds appropriation. The University community gives more than 2 million hours a year in service to the public.
