Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in neuroimaging in
Pawan Sinha’s laboratory at MIT. A key effort the lab is pursuing is
Project Prakash (www.ProjectPrakash.org <http://www.projectprakash.org/>)
which merges the humanitarian and scientific goals of providing free sight
surgeries to congenitally blind children in the developing world, and
studying the subsequent development of their visual abilities. The project
is funded by the National Institutes of Health and private foundations.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to conduct longitudinal
structural and functional neuroimaging studies with Prakash children. The
results are likely to have relevance for characterizing brain plasticity,
understanding the processes of visual learning and making linkages between
manifest visual abilities and neural activity.

We are looking for a young scientist who:
* Has substantial experience in designing and conducting neuroimaging
* Has computational sophistication so as to be able to analyze neural data
with cutting-edge techniques
* Is comfortable spending 2-3 months in a year in India
