Position: Research Associate
Institution: University of Southern California
Department: Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute
Location: Los Angeles, California, United States
Duties: The USC Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute and Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) are world leaders in the development of advanced computational and scientific approaches for the comprehensive mapping of brain structure and function. One Research Associate position is currently available at LONI in the area of neuroimaging genetics, involving the development of algorithms for the identification of novel multimodal (imaging and genetic) feature combinations and models that explain such imaging-genetic interactions and facilitate diagnoses and prognoses in neuropsychiatric, neurodegenerative, and neurodevelopmental brain disorders
Requirements: Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate. The successful candidate will have a strong background in multimodal brain image analysis, large-scale genetic association study and statistical modeling
   
Text: Research Associate Apply Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute Los Angeles, California The USC Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute and Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI, http://loni.usc.edu ) are world leaders in the development of advanced computational and scientific approaches for the comprehensive mapping of brain structure and function. LONI’s unique multidisciplinary environment and cutting edge resources allow for integration of clinical, psychological and genotypic information with neuroimaging phenotypes for research questions in neurology, psychiatry and developmental neurobiology. One Research Associate position is currently available at LONI in the area of neuroimaging genetics, involving the development of algorithms for the identification of novel multimodal (imaging and genetic) feature combinations and models that explain such imaging-genetic interactions and facilitate diagnoses and prognoses in neuropsychiatric, neurodegenerative, and neurodevelopmental brain disorders. Additional responsibilities will be to train student researchers and interact with other laboratory assistants on common projects. Other key responsibilities will be documentation of procedures using word processing, data base and web-based applications, and supervised statistical analyses, figure and table preparation for various manuscripts and scientific presentations. The successful candidate will have a strong background in multimodal brain image analysis, large-scale genetic association study and statistical modeling. Knowledge of neuroanatomy and basic neuroscience, computer programming experience (working knowledge of Linux, Matlab, R, Python, C/C , etc.) and excellent communication and writing skills are desired. Experience on database, bioinformatics, graphical models, dimensionality reduction, and machine learning is desirable. Minimum Education: Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate Minimum Experience: 1 year Minimum Field of Expertise: Directly related education and experience in research specialization with advanced knowledge of equipment, procedures and analysis methods.
