Seeking Postdoctoral Fellow for Multiomics Investigations in Neurodegenerative Diseases
The Multiomics Investigation of Neurodegenerative Diseases Lab, directed by Dr. AmanPreet Badhwar, is looking for a postdoctoral fellow. The successful candidate will leverage extensive datasets (neuroimaging, molecular ‘omics’ and clinical/neuropsychological data) to test hypotheses linking multiomics changes to age-related dementias, with an initial focus on Alzheimer’s disease and Vascular Cognitive Impairment and Dementia (VCID). The desired candidate is a motivated individual willing to work in a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary environment. The candidate is also expected to work closely with research teams with expertise in machine learning and AI, and she/he will have opportunities to build on, and/or develop these skills.
Education and experience requirements
- Prior training in Neuroscience (age-related dementias a plus) or Biomedical Engineering
- Experience in structural MRI, resting-state functional MRI, brain connectivity
- Knowledge of MatLAB and/or Python programing
- Expertise in statistics (SPSS, R, Nilearn/Nistats, or other)
- Team-oriented; excellent organizational, interpersonal and communication skills
- Experience in multivariate pattern analysis, computational modeling, and/or machine learning are all assets
