The Brain Injury Research program in the Department of Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is recruiting for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our diverse group of basic and clinical research scientists studying mild traumatic brain injury. Under the co-direction of Timothy Meier, PhD and Michael McCrea, PhD, ABPP, the Fellow will be critically involved in a multi-disciplinary project studying the physiological mechanisms of traumatic brain injury and post-concussive recovery using advanced neuroimaging metrics, blood biomarkers, genetic testing, and clinical behavioral measures. The Fellow will also play a major role in the execution of a large, prospective clinical research study on the acute effects and recovery after mild traumatic brain injury in civilians and sport-related concussion in athletes. More information on the MCW Brain Injury Research Program can be found at https://neurosurgery.mcw.edu/research/brain-injury-research-program/
The Fellowship period is for 2 to 3 years. Candidates should have (1) PhD in neuroscience, neuropsychology, clinical psychology or a field related to the neurosciences, sports medicine or trauma, (2) strong background in advanced neuroimaging methods (fMRI, DTI, etc), (3) demonstrated competency in human subjects research design and methods, and (3) a strong skill set in computerized data base management, information technology applications, and statistical analysis.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, 2 sample publications or writing samples, and 3 letters of recommendation to Timothy Meier, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Neurosurgery, Medical College of Wisconsin, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
