Post Doc, Cincinnati, USA

We invite applications for a post-doctoral research position in Neurology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC).  The successful applicant will contribute to ongoing MEG studies of pediatric language and epilepsy.  This is a two-year position focused in one or more of the following areas:

·        Methods for multimodal neuroimaging, with a focus on integration of fMRI and MEG data

·        Source-space connectivity techniques, designed to overcome challenges related to leakage, impact of inverse solution, etc.

·        Validation of integrated imaging and analysis protocols for mapping language in children undergoing epilepsy surgery (MEG, fMRI, EEG, ECoG, stimulation mapping, pathology, and outcome data available)

The post-doctoral fellow will regularly interact with clinical and research faculty, other post-docs, graduate students, and research staff in the Divisions of Neurology and Radiology, the Pediatric Neuroimaging Research Consortium (PNRC) and the Imaging Research Center (IRC).  He/she is expected to contribute to our regular research discussions, and to present at research meetings within CCHMC and at major conferences (e.g., BIOMAG, OHBM).

The successful candidate will have completed their PhD in biomedical or electrical engineering, physics, computer science, psychology, neuroscience, or a related discipline.  He/she will have experience in collection and analysis of electrophysiological data, expertise in signal processing, with strong programming skills (Matlab or a similar environment).  The ideal candidate would also have prior experience in neuroimaging and a solid background in neuroanatomy, and familiarity with M/EEG analysis software (e.g., Brainstorm, Brainwave, BESA, FieldTrip/SPM, EEGLAB, MNE).  All qualified recent graduates, or those nearing completion of their PhD, are encouraged to apply.
