Two Postdoctoral Positions at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School
The Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital is offering two postdoctoral positions based on NIH/NSF-funded projects to develop novel multi-modal neuroimaging methodology in animal models for translational studies. This position is open now until filled.
Potential candidates will be considered based on the following four research directions:
a) Develop an advanced fiber-based imaging device for brain dynamic signal recordings, e.g., Ca2+, Glutamate, dopamine, CNiFERs, with simultaneous fMRI in awake rodents.
b) Implement the MRI/EEG/fiber photometry recording methods to detect brain state fluctuation and neuro-glial-vascular dynamic signaling in transgenic mouse models
c) Optimize the high spatiotemporal fMRI method, e.g. line-scanning and single-vessel fMRI, to specify circuit dysfunction and vasomotion impairment in animal models with a degenerative disease or vascular dementia.
d) Develop a novel wireless implantable RF coil array in combination with fiber photometry or electrophysiological recordings to acquire neuro-glio-vascular signals across different scales.
Candidates with in vivo electrophysiological recording skills and experience in animal neuroimaging are preferred. Also, we welcome candidates with strong numerical analytical (including programming) and electronic engineering skills to apply for this position, who can be trained to learn how to perform animal fMRI and data analysis.
We welcome candidates with high motivation, curiosity, and scientific maturity. The candidate should have strong teamwork skills and working ethics.
