Neuroimaging Lab Postdoc Position

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Neuroimaging Laboratory


Department: Bioengineering

The Neuroimaging Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh has a postdoctoral research fellow position open immediately. The candidate should possess a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, or a related field, and have published scholarly articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He/she should have a strong research background in system’s neuroscience, computation, neurophysiology (blood flow regulation, metabolism), neural engineering and/or data analysis (signal/image processing). Experience with rodent experimentation, advanced biological imaging (two-photon and optical microscopy), neural tissue histology and data analysis in MATLAB/Python are essential. The candidate will work on longitudinal imaging of rodent brain dynamics in health and disease. The candidate may also be involved in projects related to neural engineering and early detection of Alzheimer’s disease. He/she will be working with an interdisciplinary team of neural engineers, neurologists, radiologists, material scientists and biophysicists.

Interested candidates should submit curriculum vitae, the names of three references, a statement of research experience, and date of availability to Alberto L. Vazquez (alv15@pitt.edu ). Information on the Neuroimaging Laboratory can be found on this website (http://neuroimaginglab.pitt.edu).

The Departments of Radiology and Bioengineering are strongly committed to a diverse academic environment and places high priority on attracting female and underrepresented minority candidates. We strongly encourage candidates from these groups to apply for the position.
