Toronto, ON, CA Posted: 10/5/2020 1:47:01 PM

Postdoctoral fellow on clinical applications of vascular neuroimaging

Sunnybrook Research Institute is looking to hire a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on vascular & neuroimaging research in the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Program within the Physical Sciences Platform. The candidate will join an intensely collaborative research team that is part of the Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery and the newly formed Dr. Sandra Black Centre for Brain Resilience & Recovery.

The successful candidate will contribute to the development of neuroimaging methods that focus on arterial spin labeling (ASL) and blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The research will involve multivariate analysis and novel applications of deep learning with the goal to increase the value and use of clinical neuroimaging. The lab at Sunnybrook Research Institute has a track record of developing image processing pipelines to make discoveries in stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and vascular risk factors.

With over 400 million people worldwide living with diabetes, there is a need for more research to understand relationships between diabetes and brain health. The candidate will support an on-going research collaboration with the Dasman Diabetes Institute, located in Kuwait.

Qualifications include:

  • PhD degree in medical imaging, imaging science, or MRI-related topic
  • Familiarity with neuroimaging tools (e.g. FSL or AFNI)
  • Interest in studying metabolism and vascular risk factors (e.g. diabetes, hypertension)
  • A track record of contributing towards to peer-review publications
  • Experience with human studies and/or clinical trials
  • Experience/familiarity with MRI
  • Experience with multivariate methods and/or machine learning (e.g. TensorFlow, PyTorch)
  • Knowledge of computing scripts, R, and/or python

In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, this advertisement is directed initially to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Application screening will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Please include “vascular neuroimaging PDF” in the email subject line.
