- 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.
