The Acute Cerebrovascular Diagnostics Unit (ACDU), Stroke Branch, NINDS, NIH is seeking a postdoctoral candidate interested in investigating acute stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A particular focus of the ACDU is understanding blood-brain and blood-meningeal barrier injury through use of dynamic imaging markers.
We are looking for a motivated, talented, and dedicated scientist with a strong background in human brain anatomy and interest in neuroimaging, specifically MRI to join our team. Individuals must hold a doctoral degree (PhD and/or MD), or be in the final stages of achieving their degree, and have no more than five years of relevant research experience since receipt of their most recent doctoral degree. Areas of interest can include neurology, radiology, neuroradiology, neuroscience, biomedical engineering or a related discipline. Previous work experience with structural MRI techniques, including diffusion MRI and perfusion MRI would be considered an asset. Familiarity with one or more programming or scripting language such as Matlab, Python, or R, and with existing neuroimaging tools such as Freesurfer and AFNI is desirable.
Please email a cover letter describing your interest in the position, including a career synopsis; a current curriculum vitae with a complete bibliography; and the names and contact information for at least three references to Dr. Lawrence Latour (firstname.lastname@example.org)
