One or two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Brian Gold to participate in NIH funded projects. Research is within the field of neurocognitive aging. Specific aims focus on distributed brain networks supporting cognitive control and memory processes, and the effects of aging, vascular pathologies and Alzheimer’s pathologies on these processes. The position presents the opportunity for a dynamic research experience associating measures of functional connectivity and cognition with white matter hyperintensities and white matter microstructural measures. More specific information about our research is available on our webpage (https://sites.google.com/site/btgoldlaboratory).
Human MRI studies are conducted on a state-of-the art 3T Siemens PRISMA scanner using a 64-channel head-coil. The imaging facilities are located a corridor away from our lab. Established methods are in place for recruitment of older adult participants through our Sanders-Brown Center on Aging (http://www.mc.uky.edu/coa/).
The position is for 2 years, with renewal up to 5 years depending upon performance. To apply, please email a statement of research interests and a CV to email@example.com
