POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN NEUROIMAGING

THOMAS JEFFERSON UNIVERSITY/ SIDNEY KIMMEL MEDICAL COLLEGE, PHILA., PA.


The Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Medical College has an opening for a Two-Year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Neuroimaging focusing on both clinical brain mapping and primary cognitive neuroscience investigations. The emphasis in our neuroimaging program is on cognitive and behavioral network organization and plasticity in neurologic disorders such as epilepsy. The lab focuses on the use of advanced network neuroscience measures to understand seizure networks and cognitive reorganization in epilepsy, and has had recent publications in Brian, Neurology, and Epilepsia, with some also prompting complimentary peer reviews. The lab is part of the Jefferson Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, an internationally-known epilepsy surgery program. Presurgical brain mapping studies are undertaken (MRI volumetrics, task-fMRI, resting state functional connectivity, diffusion imaging, neuropsychological assessment, electrophysiology/electrocortical stimulation) as well as post-surgical neuroimaging studies investigating clinical, cognitive, and behavioral outcomes. The pre-surgical brain mapping studies are conducted on a regular basis, utilized in image-guided surgery, and then made available for research. Studies in brain recovery and the cognitive reorganization of language and memory functions are emphasized, utilizing rich multi-modal datasets for the investigation of both cognitive and pathologic (e.g., seizure) networks. Thomas Jefferson University provides a high-level interdisciplinary research environment with grand rounds, seminars, case conferences, and opportunities to collaborate with faculty across departments such as neurosurgery and radiology. Successful applicants must have a strong background in image processing and analysis using programs such as MATLAB, SPM, Freesurfer, and FSL with a strong interest in clinical neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or MD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, statistics, neurology, neuropsychology, radiology, or related field. Interested applicants should send a CV and cover letter stating experience and interests, 2-3 peer-reviewed publications. Anticipated start date is 7/1/18, but is flexible. Contact: Joseph I. Tracy, Ph.D., ABPP(CN). Director, Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Mapping Laboratory, Thomas Jefferson Univ./Sidney Kimmel Medical Coll., Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, 901 Walnut Street, Suite #447, Phila., PA 19107, phone:#215-955-4661, e-mail:?joseph.tracy@jefferson.edu.?
