Thalamocortical connectivity in youths with neonatal periventricular white matter injury

NIH-funded Postdoctoral fellowship at the Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA

We are seeking a full-time postdoctoral fellow to work with Dr. Corinna Bauer on an NIH-funded project investigating the impact of neonatal thalamic injury on the development of vision-processing networks in the brain and corresponding visuo-perceptual dysfunctions.  The project employs structural, diffusion, and relaxometry based MRI methods to target thalamo-cortical changes in morphometry, neural networks, and MRI-based markers of myelin.

The position is available beginning Spring/Summer 2021. The initial time frame will be for 18 months with the possibility of extension.

Required Qualifications:
• Doctoral degree required with 0-1 years of related work experience
• Strong coding skills in python, MATLAB, bash, etc.
• Advanced skills in the processing and analysis of diffusion (including connectivity, DKI, and NODDI approaches) data, particularly focusing on network-based approaches
• Strong publication record in neuroimaging, with a preference for a focus on multimodal techniques in neurodevelopmental disorders
• Good command of the oral and written English language
• Strong organizational and data management skills
• Prior experience reviewing, analyzing, and summarizing scientific literature
• Excellent attention to detail and interpersonal, organizational, writing, and project management skills

Preferred Qualifications:
• Experience with multicomponent T2 relaxometry
• Experience working with clinical pediatric populations
• Experience with psychophysical assessments of functional vision
• Experience with fMRI design and analysis

Interested candidates should send a cover letter including, a brief summary of their research interests and career goals, their C.V., and the names and phone numbers of three references to Corinna Bauer (Corinna_Bauer at meei.harvard.edu<mailto:Corinna_Bauer at meei.harvard.edu>).

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
