Emory’s Marcus Autism Center and the GSU/Georgia Tech/Emory Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS) are seeking talented postdoctoral fellows [or Research Scientists] interested in applying cutting edge analytic tools to the study of brain network topology in very early infancy. Jointly led by Dr. Vince Calhoun (Director of TReNDS) and Dr. Sarah Shultz (Director of the Pediatric
Neuroimaging Research Core at Marcus Autism Center), our work leverages advances dynamic network analysis to map developmental trajectories of brain network dynamics in early infancy.
Under the guidance of Drs. Calhoun and Shultz, the candidate will develop and implement innovative tools for charting spatio-temporal maps of structural and functionalbrain connectomes in the first months of life. The candidate will work with a large sample of diffusion and functional resting-state data collected from infants at low- and elevated-likelihood for Autism Spectrum Disorder and will collaborate with an
interdisciplinary team of MRI scientists, engineers, developmental neuroscientists, and clinical psychologists, all focused on improving early detection and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The initial term of the position is two years, with the possibility of extension and/or conversion into a tenure-track faculty position contingent upon performance and the availability of funding.
Required: Ph.D. in a related field is required
– Experience in network analysis, particularly dynamic graph theory
– Experience processing neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, diffusion, and structural MRI) data
– Brain imaging expertise, particularly in pediatric neuroimaging
– Experience with Matlab and Python
