Research Associate

I am seeking to recruit a doctoral-level research associate to assist with operational leadership of the image analysis team. Responsibilities will include: data integration and analysis, developing and maintaining imaging processing pipelines, supervising staff and trainees, assisting with grant preparation, and writing first-author manuscripts. This position will involve working as part of a highly-interdisciplinary research team that includes experts in diverse fields such as neuropsychiatry (Raquel E. Gur; director of LiBI and UPenn Neuropsychiatry), neuropsychology (Ruben Gur; director of BBL), network theory (Danielle S. Bassett), multivariate pattern analysis (Christos Davatzikos), and imaging statistics (Taki Shinohara).  To work effectively in this highly collaborative environment, the applicant must have superior communication, language, and writing skills.  The applicant must have completed their Ph.D. in neuroscience, engineering, psychology, or statistics with an established record of high productivity; post-doctoral training is desirable. Expertise in using neuroimaging software (e.g., FSL, ANTs, AFNI), statistical packages (e.g., R), and scripting languages (e.g., bash) are required.  Salary flexible and based upon experience.


Post-doctoral Fellow

Anticipated research focus for this position would be to use novel data-driven methods to understand heterogeneity in developmental trajectories of brain networks and neuropsychiatric syndromes.  As such, the position will involve working as part of a highly-interdisciplinary research team, with particular emphasis on collaborative work with leaders including Dr. Christos Davatzikos (multivariate pattern analysis), Dr. Danielle Bassett (network theory), and Taki Shinohara (imaging statistics).  To work effectively in this highly collaborative environment, the applicant must have superior communication, language, and writing skills.  The applicant must have completed their Ph.D. in neuroscience, engineering, psychology, or statistics with an established record of high productivity. Expertise in using neuroimaging software (e.g., FSL, ANTs, AFNI), statistical packages (e.g., R, Matlab), and scripting languages (e.g., bash) is highly desirable.  Salary flexible and based upon experience.
