Job Title:

Postdoctoral Position in Neuroimaging of Cognitive Aging

Job Description:

The Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC) at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University is seeking a full-time postdoctoral research fellow to work within the Neuroimaging Core of the Einstein Aging Study (EAS) on the analysis of neuroimaging data, to include the development of novel data analysis methods. This position will be for a 2-year period with the possibility of renewal. Applicants should have a PhD and a strong background in the development and/or application of novel methods for human brain DTI/fMRI/structural MRI data analysis including appropriate background and skills in relevant statistical and computational fields. About the Gruss MRRC: The Center has a multinuclear 3.0 Tesla Whole Body Philips TX Achieva (Dual transmitter, 32 RX Channels, all TX/SENSE COILS) for human research (100% research dedicated) and a 9.4 T Varian Direct Drive animal system. Stimulus systems (Resonance Technology and In Vivo ESys) and SMI eye tracking systems are available. Image processing facilities including a high-performance computing cluster running virtually all readily available image processing software as well as applications developed in house, primarily in Matlab. The Center is supported by 6 full time faculty and multiple postdoctoral and student trainees in the areas of physics, computation, image analysis, biostatistics, chemistry and neuroradiology. Please go to http://www.einstein.yu.edu/mrrc/home.aspx for more details. About the Einstein Aging Study: The Einstein Aging Study (EAS) is a NIH/NIA funded Program Project grant (PPG) that explores risk factors and underlying biological mechanisms of age-related cognitive and locomotor dysfunction in an elderly cohort. The thematically integrated Projects are supported by five Cores and use a shared community sample. Areas of study include: (1) the role of the pain and stress in cognitive decline and dementia and the mediating role of glucocorticoid dysregulation, (2) the role of microvascular disease and cerebral hypoperfusion in cognitive decline and (3) simple and complex locomotor function in relationship to the pathways that lead to cognitive decline, and their role in predicting cognitive and functional outcomes. The EAS website can be found at www.Einstein.yu.edu/EAS Salary and Benefits: Competitive salary and benefits will be offered based on qualifications. Your application letter should include a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, and contacts of three references and email to MRRC Administrator: lisa.roth@einstein.yu.edu, or mail to: Administrator, Gruss Magnetic Resonance Research Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus - Gruss 201, 1300 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx, NY 10461 EOE
