Postdoctoral Researcher in Molecular and Brain Macroscopic Mechanisms in Alzheimer's Disease
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher, for joining the Neuroinformatics for Personalized Medicine lab (NeuroPM) at the Montreal Neurological Institute (McGill University, Montreal, Canada). The postdoc will be under the primary supervision of Prof. Yasser Iturria-Medina and will collaborate with multiple associated groups, including the McGill Center for Studies in Aging, CERVO - Laval Univ., Lady Davis Research Institute, Yale Child Study Center and Litwin Family Centre in Genetic Medicine. The project, initially funded for 3 years and potentially extendable, includes the analysis of molecular and macroscopic brain alterations in AD, with a particular interest on characterizing disease evolution with novel computational techniques. For examples, see our recent publications: https://doi.org/10.1093/brain/awz400 and doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroimage.2018.06.028
The NeuroPM lab (http://www.neuropm-lab.com) is affiliated with the Healthy brain for Healthy Lives (HBHL) initiative (https://www.mcgill.ca/hbhl/), the Ludmer Center (http://ludmercentre.ca/), and the McConnell Brain Imaging Center (https://www.mcgill.ca/bic/), involving computationally intensive and interdisciplinary research on the brain. The MNI is an internationally renowned institution, characterized by the integration of research and patient care.
Interested candidates should have a solid background and multiple publications in genetics and brain imaging in neurodegeneration. Experience in brain computational modeling will be an asset. Interested persons should send their CV and two reference contacts.
