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) which merges the humanitarian and
scientific goals of providing free sight surgeries to congenitally blind
children in the developing world, and studying subsequent development of
their visual abilities. The project is funded by the National Eye Institute
(NIH) and private foundations.
We are looking for a young scientist who has substantial experience in
designing and conducting neuroimaging studies, and computational
sophistication for neural data analysis.
The successful candidate will be based at MIT and have the opportunity to
spend 2 months each year in India with additional members of the Prakash
team, conducting structural and functional neuroimaging studies with
newly-sighted 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
This is a two-year position with the possibility of further extension.
Start date is flexible. Consideration of candidates will commence
immediately. Applications should include a CV, and a 1-page summary of
research undertaken thus far. Please direct your applications and any
queries to Professor Pawan Sinha (psinha at mit.edu)
MIT values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
Pawan Sinha, Ph.D.
Professor of Vision and Computational Neuroscience
Director, Project Prakash
