We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in the lab:
Postdoctoral Position in Network Mechanisms Underlying Neural Reorganization:
We’re searching for a candidate interested in understanding the network mechanisms underlying neural reorganization after stroke. Directed by Mark D’Esposito M.D. and Andrew Kayser M.D. Ph.D., this project will combine and extend behavioral, computational, and functional imaging approaches in order to develop a framework for predicting stroke recovery. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in neuroscience, bioengineering, or a related field, or an M.D. degree with appropriate training. Strong computational skills and a record of previous research are welcomed, and previous experience with fMRI and network-based analysis is strongly preferred. Facility with Matlab, Python, or another programming language is required. The initial appointment will be for two years. The successful candidate will have access to a friendly and collaborative environment, as well as to extensive facilities at U.C. San Francisco, U.C. Berkeley, and the Northern California Department of Veterans Affairs. The starting date is Fall of 2018, but potentially flexible for the right candidate. Responsibilities will primarily involve designing, conducting and analyzing behavioral and neuroimaging studies.
Please send applications (a CV, statement of research experience and interests, and the names of 3 references) by email to Andrew.Kayser (at) ucsf.edu . Informal inquiries are welcome. Applications considered as received.
