The primary project may include development of techniques for prediction of surgical / neurodevelopmental outcome using machine (DEEP)-learning algorithms applied to BIG DATA combining imaging-features with psychological / behavioral parameters, clinical parameters and genetic data. The laboratory provides ample opportunity for the development of innovative, focused research and a broad collaborative clinical neuroscience experience as well as for numerous publications in high impact journals. The other research focuses on developing image processing and image analysis techniques for multivariate analysis of various imaging-features that are extracted on human brain MRI. One possible study that the selected postdoc fellow may participate in is to advance part of the present pipeline for morphometry of neonatal and infant brain MRI and/or for diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) or resting-state fMRI analysis (rs-fMRI), to automatically perform multicontrast image analyses.
Position qualifications include a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computer science or a related field. The successful applicant will have expertise in anatomical MRI, DTI or rs-fMRI analysis, strong skills in imaging processing such as registration, segmentation and/or surface modeling, statistical methods such as statistical parametric modeling, voxel-based / deformation-based morphometry or graph theory for the structural / functional connectivity analysis. Experience with neuroimaging analysis programs (AFNI, FSL, SPM, FreeSurfer or other relevant programs), and statistical analysis (MATLAB & toolbox - SPM, SurfStat, R) are also required. A person with expertise in machine learning approaches such as deep learning (DNN, CNN) / various classification methods (SVM, probabilistic graphical models, ensemble models) would be highly encouraged, even without broad neuroscience experience. Excellent scientific writing skills and strong publication records are highly desired. Solid big data programming skills with a working knowledge of Linux, C/C++, Python (scikit-learn, Theano, PyMVPA), and Matlab is desirable. Salary and benefits are competitive.
Candidates should submit CV and (cover letter and concise description of research interests & career goals if possible but not necessary) to Dr. Hosung Kim (email@example.com ).
