Position title: Postdoctoral researcher in fetal/neonatal neuroimage analysis

Name of department/lab: NeuroIm Lab in the Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging & Developmental Science Center at Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital

Name of supervisor: Kiho Im

Closing data: no limit


A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in Dr. Im’s neuroimaging lab in the Fetal-Neonatal Neuroimaging & Developmental Science Center at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital (https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/neuroim). Dr. Im’s project has focused on developing and analyzing quantitative neuroimaging (structural, diffusion, and functional MRI) features in developing human brains. Our research goal is to provide unique and biologically relevant imaging biomarkers that help us better understand normal and abnormal brain development and aid in the detection and diagnosis of disease. To achieve that goal, we aim to develop advanced fetal/neonatal MRI processing and analysis techniques.

A postdoctoral researcher will develop novel brain MRI processing and analytic methods and investigate fetal/neonatal brain development (e.g., cortical plate and subplate thickness, brain structural and functional connectivity/network, brain development prediction, neurodevelopmental outcome prediction) using advanced mathematical, statistical, and deep learning methods.

The Im lab is in the Fetal- Neonatal Neuroimaging and Developmental Science Center (Director: P. Ellen Grant https://www.fnndsc.org) where world-renowned professional researchers study brain development using various neuroimaging techniques such as MRI, Magnetoencephalography (MEG), and Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) in fetuses, neonates, infants, and patients with developmental brain disorders. Thus, the postdoctoral researcher will also have great opportunities for various collaborations.

The candidates should have

  • Ph.D degree in engineering, computer science or neuroscience 
  • Expertise in brain MRI processing and analysis (Experience of diffusion/functional MRI analysis is a plus) or machine learning/deep learning
  • Proficiency in programming, such as C++, Python, and Matlab
  • Strong publication record and high self-motivation


To apply for this position, please send your CV, the list of 2~3 references with contact information, and a cover letter describing your research interests, most notable publications, and career goals to Kiho Im,
