The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Mesulam Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seek a full-time tenure track Investigator at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.  The research will take place at the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease Center.  The CNADC contains an NIH-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center.  Extensively characterized patients and controls of the Alzheimer’s Disease Center will be available for the candidate’s research.  In addition to multi-modal neuroimaging (e.g., structural and functional MRI, diffusion imaging, and PET), electrophysiological brain mapping capabilities will also be available.  Translational research related to novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches will be encouraged.  Depending on the research areas of the successful candidate, the CNADC brain bank will enable investigations on the post-mortem correlates of in vivo cognitive and structural disease markers.

Qualified candidates will be expected to establish an independent laboratory synergistic with existing Mesulam Center programs on cognition and imaging in dementia. Successful candidates may also have a background in computer science, bioinformatics, and advanced statistics.
