Baylor College of Medicine
Postdoctoral associate or Instructor  
  Posted Wednesday, September 20, 2017

There is an immediate opening for one or two postdoctoral researchers to work on two projects. The first effort is to apply machine-learning methods to fMRI data in real time in a project to test a new scheme to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) using immersive virtual reality within a MRI scanner. fMRI brain data obtained from PTSD patients in the scanner will be analyzed to provide feedback to inform coping strategies. Results are expected to enable more effective treatment of PTSD, and improve our understanding of the mechanisms that create PTSD.

The second project concerns the mechanisms of neurovascular coupling within the brain, the physiological basis of fMRI signals. Work involves the use of fMRI, ASL, and computational modeling to enable separation of metabolism from blood flow in fMRI signals, enabling much more effective quantitation of brain function. The method also promises clinical applications that utilize neurovascular coupling as a diagnostic of brain disorders that lack clear structural features. 

More experienced applicants will be considered at the Instructor level, a junior faculty position. The position is for one year, extendable to 3 years with strong performance and the availability of funding. Other projects in the lab include studies of visual function in cerebral cortex and sub-cortical brain regions using high-resolution fMRI methods. The laboratory has extensive access to the Core for Advanced MRI at Baylor College of Medicine, which features two Siemens 3T human MRI scanners, a 32-channel Trio, and a 64-channel Prisma.

Required qualifications

  • Ph.D. in Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Neuroscience, or equivalent
  • ≥3 years experience in image- or signal-processing methods
  • ≥5 years computer-programming experience

Desired qualifications

  • Experience in machine-learning methods such as support-vector machines and neural networks
  • Experience in MRI
  • Experience in Matlab and Python
  • Strong background in neuroscience

Dalhousie University
PhD Student Positions in Brain Networks (Canada)  
  Posted Thursday, November 10, 2016

Applications are invited for two PhD students to join the Brain Networks and Neurophysiology (NetPhys) Lab in Dalhousie University. The degree is multidisciplinary with options of admission through different graduate departments (Physics, Computer Science, Medical Neuroscience, Psychology and Neuroscience).

The NetPhys Lab is dedicated to understanding the behavioral relevance of neural communication in large-scale brain networks. We use pain as our modality for understanding how the brain processes internal and external information to generate perception. We also observe how ongoing mental processes alter pain perception. Our overall goal is to establish the scope and limits as to which we will be able to use brain imaging for predicting complex behavior such as pain. Our core focus is on predictive analytics geared at using multimodal brain imaging data to develop tools that can predict treatment outcomes, especially in chronic pain patients in all ages and across the lifespan. Other projects will study brain networks in altered states of consciousness—such as general anesthesia or mindful-awareness meditation—in multimodal data.

The planned studies will use leading-edge-imaging methods to analyze multimodal data (MEG, EEG, fMRI, DTI and EEG) combined with quantitative data analysis with a special focus on intrinsic and dynamic brain networks. We will use opensource resting and task related data to build new knowledge on brain function. This is thus a unique opportunity to contribute to the scientific models of the brain and to build transferable skills such as use of multimodal brain imaging, machine learning, dynamic connectivity and graph theory based network analysis in predictive analytics.

The student will learn how to use high dimensional data and cognitive neuroscience to develop neuropsychiatric biomarkers.

Applicants should submit a cover letter stating their research interests and current CV (including a list of scholarly publications), along with the names and contact information for three referees to asap.

The NetPhys lab is based in the Department of Anesthesia, Pain Management and Perioperative Medicine at Dalhousie University. Brain imaging projects will be conducted in collaboration with the leading neuroimaging facility in the Canadian Atlantic region ( and The Big Data Institute and with several other departments. You will work in collaboration with neuroscientists, computer scientists and clinical research experts.

Halifax is a port city, rich with culture and history, and is encircled in extraordinary coastal line and landscapes. The city has a bustling academic environment with six major universities located in the city municipality. It offers opportunities to think creatively, learn in a nurturing environment and to explore pristine nature.

We encourage students from all backgrounds including international students, women and minorities to apply.

The student needs to have demonstrated academic excellence, proficiency in writing code and should have strong analytical skills in processing data (especially time series data), writing code in BASH and in at least one of the following packages: Matlab/Python/R.

Experience in machine learning, computational modelling, mathematical modelling is a big plus. This ideal candidate will have undergraduate or Masters level training in physics, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, statistics or will have already demonstrated excellence in neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG/EEG).  

We are especially interested in a devoted interest in the brain and motivation to gain expertise in advanced quantitative data analysis.

The successful candidate will be well organized, will demonstrate a thorough and conscientious approach to performing her/his duties, be a compassionate and strong team player and will be able to handle multiple tasks simultaneously.
