Research Postdoctoral Fellow (Epilepsy Computational Image)Posted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Apr-26
The Research Postdoctoral Fellow is a "research trainee" for the purpose of enhancing and developing research competencies. Specifically we are looking for a postdoc in the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Children’s National Hospital System (Center for Neuroscience/Children’s Research Institute) and the George Washington University, Washington DC. This position involves the application of state-of-the-art functional and structural MRI imaging methods. The fellow will apply methods previously developed but not used in epilepsy as well as develop novel computational imaging methods. Our aim is to apply sophisticated approaches to answer clinical questions (e.g., identify seizure focus through fMRI; develop sensitive MRI metrics of cognitive reorganization; examine pre-post surgical changes structurally and functionally).The fellow will have the opportunity to initiate his/her own research projects, mine existing data, and to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team including neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, cognitive neuroscientists fellows, graduate students, and research assistants.
The Research Postdoctoral Fellow will assist faculty in the conduct of research and reports to a principal investigator or CRI Center Director. Can serve in several roles in the laboratory setting depending on the scientific specialty and needs of the research project supported. Participates directly in the design and conduct of experiments and therefore needs technical knowledge and subject matter expertise encompassing several disciplines such as molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, genetics, physiology or animal science. Based on experience the research post-doctoral fellow may train technical staff, graduate students and others in laboratory procedures may provide general supervision in the laboratory and assists with data management and analysis. In addition, the research post-doc fellow will be responsible for assisting the principal investigator in the planning and execution research projects, grant applications and publications. May further assist in the management of resource allocations, and may manage day-to-day activities in the laboratory, such as purchasing, oversight of laboratory animals, radioactivity, and biosafety issues. May guide or lead the work of peers, technicians or other diverse support staff as necessary to achieve specific assignments or complete large and complex projects.
