The Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to perform computational neuro-imaging using MRI and functional MRI (fMRI). The candidate will also be involved in the NIH/NHLBI funded Program Project Grant P01HL131478, entitled “Stress and Atherosclerotic Plaque Macrophages – a Systems Biology Approach”, PI: Zahi A. Fayad. The goals of this 5-year project are (i) to provide mechanistic insights on how stress biologically affects macrophage dynamics, using mouse models of atherosclerosis; (ii) to develop translational imaging technologies that allow monitoring macrophage dynamics non-invasively in animal models and humans; and (iii) to employ the developed neuroimaging and cardiovascular technologies (MR/PET) to study how post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) leads to atherosclerosis in humans. Other projects include experimental setup, methods development and analysis of resting state functional MRI data and diffusion MRI data; image analysis for a wide range of neurological conditions including post traumatic stress disorder, major depressive disorder, brain tumors and epilepsy.
The candidate should have a PhD in either Computer Science, Engineering, Neuroscience, Physics, Mathematics or a related field, with focus on medical image analysis and acquisition related to neuroimaging.
