Postdoctoral Fellow in Visual Perception and Neuroimaging:
A post-doctoral fellowship position to study cortical plasticity and reorganization after stroke, traumatic brain injury and cancer using real-time functional MRI neurofeedback methods is available at Baylor College of Medicine. The lab is collaborative and includes exploration of real-time fMRI neurofeedback, resting state fMRI, structural MRI, EEG, eyetracking data of healthy subjects and patients. The overall aim to investigate the neural underpinnings of individual differences in healthy subjects and patients before and after induction of learning using real-time fMRI neurofeedback.
The Papageorgiou Lab: Investigational Targeted Brain Neurotherapeutics focuses on the mechanisms involved in cortical blindness, motor impairment, and chronic pain as a function of learning. We use a variety of innovative approaches, including neurofeedback in targeted and individualized regions of interest based on the patient's location and spatial extent of the lesion, optimization of rt-fMRI nFb methods with the long-term goal of central and peripheral nervous system injury neuro-rehabilitation, as well as using highly quantitative methods, such as population receptive field, multivariate and univariate analyses. The work promises to be challenging, but also presents a highly exciting opportunity to gain an understanding of innovative neurofeedback methods applied in various patient populations depending on the domain of brain function lesioned, such as in visual, motor, and pain-matrix networks. Trainees will benefit from the Core for Advanced MR Imaging Core Facility at Baylor College of Medicine, which includes a state-of-the art imaging facility with two research-dedicated Siemens 3T MAGNETOM Trios, and a Siemens PRISMA.
Required Expertise :
(1) PhD with a background in any of the following disciplines: systems, cognitive, or computational Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Engineering, Computer Science, or Bio-Physics.
(2) Strong programming skills: Matlab or Python;
(3) Statistical literacy
(4) fMRI software expertise (any of the following: AFNI; FSL; SPM; Freesurfer).
(5) Familiarity with Unix environment
The applicant MUST have the passion and motivation to pursue innovative scientific research with a flexible work schedule.
Apply : Applicants should submit a CV , that includes a brief description of analysis and technical skills , and a list of 3-4 references to: papageor at bcm.edu<mailto:papageor at bcm.edu>
Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience.
Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Equal Access Employer.
