Updated: about 1 month ago
Deadline: 31 Jan 2020

Two post-doctoral positions with scholarships granted by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) are available to work as part of a research project of BRAINN, the Brazilian Research Institute for Neuroscience and Neurotechnology – one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs) supported by FAPESP, BRAINN is hosted by Medical Sciences School of the University of Campinas (FCM-UNICAMP), São Paulo State, Brazil.

Coordinated by Professor Fernando Cendes at the Neurology Department of FCM-UNICAMP, the research project aims at the identification of biomarkers to facilitate diagnosis and prognosis, possibly help the understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms, and potentially predict favorable or unfavorable surgery outcomes. To achieve these goals, the postdoc will use current neuroimaging methods available and develop new analysis approaches.

Candidates should have:

- A degree in Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience or related area;
- A Ph.D. with research experience in the topics relevant to the project;
- Strong neuroimaging background (MRI and fMRI);
- Expertise in Functional Connectivity and Dynamic Functional Connectivity;
- Strong Matlab programming skills;
- Experience in programming Graphical User Interfaces (GUI);
- Familiarity with neuroimaging toolboxes (SPM, FSL, etc.);
- A solid basis of Statistics;
- Familiarity with Machine Learning algorithms;
- Signal and image processing expertise;
- Outstanding publication records;
- Excellent communication skills;
- Research independence;
- Collaborative personality to work in groups with researchers and students;
- Expertise in volumetric and DTI analysis is a plus.

This opportunity is open to candidates of any nationalities. Each selected candidate will receive a FAPESP’s Post-Doctoral fellowship in the amount of R$ 7,373.10 monthly and a research contingency fund, equivalent to 15% of the annual value of the fellowship which should be spent in items directly related to the research activity.
