Postdoctoral Associate at the Center for In Vivo Microscopy


We seek a highly motivated, creative, individual to pursue applications in magnetic resonance microscopy in an innovative, collaborative environment. We are engaged in both development of magnetic resonance histology and its application in understanding mouse models of neurodegeneration.

We have two existing NIH proposals to develop and apply magnetic resonance histology (MRH) in the study of Alzheimer's Disease. A new proposal recently approved by the CHDI foundation will create a comprehensive atlas of the evolution of Huntington's Disease.

The successful applicant will gain experience in the physics of MRI and diffusion tensor imaging, light sheet microscopy (LSM), integration of the two,a wide range of novel new image processing algorithms, and the rapidly evolving applications of MRH/LSM in mouse models of neurologic disease.

Applicants must:

1.    hold a PhD with relevant skillsets in programming (including Python) and machine learning methods for image analysis;

2.    have excellent informal and formal written and oral communication skills;

3.    Be capable of balancing independent research progress with collaboration and team work, as appropriate;
