Post Doctoral Associate - NeuroImaging
The University of Massachusetts Medical School, one of the fastest growing academic health centers in the country, has built a reputation as a world-class research institution, consistently producing noteworthy advances in clinical and basic research. The Medical School attracts more than $174 million in research funding annually, 80 percent of which comes from federal funding sources. UMMS is the academic partner of UMass Memorial Health Care, the largest health care provider in Central Massachusetts.
The Center for Comparative NeuroImaging (CCNI) is a neuroimaging initiative in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School with a focus on translational neuroimaging.
The on-going projects at the CCNI include studies related to exploration of neurologic and psychiatric disorders as well as co-morbidities like addicton. The CCNI houses a 4.7T Bruker animal scanner and has access to a 3T Phillips human scanner.
PhD required. The CCNI invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellow position. Specifically, the studies in the CCNI utilize multi-modal MRI technique, behavioral methods, genetics and molecular biological techniques to identify and monitor neuronal mechanism associated with dysfunction in emotional, behavioral and cognitive processes in humans and animal models. Candidates for this position must have strong research background in MR techniques and technology.
