Description

Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroimaging in the Dept. of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine & Electrical & Computer Engineering, Rice University

The Papageorgiou/Investigational Targeted Brain Neurotherapeutics Laboratory is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow to conduct innovative research on cortical repair and neuromodulation using fMRI and real-time functional MRI neurofeedback approaches combined with EEG data acquisition in the long-term. The lab focuses on the mechanisms involved in cortical blindness, motor impairment as a result of lower cranial nerve injury, and chronic pain as a function of inducing learning. Our studies focus on a variety of innovative approaches, including neurofeedback in targeted and individualized regions of interest based on the patient's location and spatial extent of the lesion, optimization of rt-fMRI nFb methods with the long-term goal of central and peripheral nervous system injury neuro- rehabilitation, as well as using highly quantitative methods, such as population receptive field, multivariate and univariate analyses. The work promises to be challenging, but also presents a highly exciting opportunity to gain an understanding of innovative neurofeedback methods applied in various patient populations depending on the domain of brain function lesioned, such as in visual, motor, and pain-matrix networks.

  • Elucidate the mechanisms that guide plasticity following insult to the brain, by using structural, volumetric, diffusion tensor imaging and functional connectivity measures

  • Induce functional plasticity/reorganization of the brain by applying a targeted and individualized real-time fMRI neurofeedback method

  • Develop optimization neurofeedback approaches via computational modelling.

  • Conduct neuroimaging experiments and perform analyses of the data.

  • Prepare and conduct technical presentations.

  • Document research, and write-up papers in peer-reviewed journals.

  • Work within a team to coordinate resources and plan real-time fMRI neurofeedback paradigms. 

The trainee will benefit from the Core for Advanced MR Imaging Facility at Baylor College of Medicine, which includes a state-of-the art imaging facility with research- dedicated Siemens 3T PRISMA, and 3T MAGNETOM Trio. 

Required:

  • Ph.D. in a relevant field: Neuroscience; Applied Math; Electrical Engineering; Bioengineering/ Biomedical Engineering; MR physics; Applied Physics.

  • Demonstrated advanced analytical and experimental skills.

  • Strong expertise in signal processing

  • Demonstrated written and verbal communication skills to author technical and scientific reports, publications, and invited papers, and deliver scientific presentations.

  • Good interpersonal communication skills necessary to collaborate effectively in a team environment and be capable of independent original work.

  • The applicant MUST have the passion and motivation to pursue innovative scientific research with a flexible work schedule. 

Preferred:

  • EEG experience

  • Strong expertise in fMRI methods and analyses

  • AFNI experience will be strongly preferred

  • DTI analysis
