Multimodal Neuroimaging in Neuropsychiatric Disorders Laboratory, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, National University of Singapore is looking for postdoctoral fellow in cognitive neuroscience and/or multimodal neuroimaging.
Our group studies the human neural bases of social-emotion, cognition, and memory functions and the associated vulnerability patterns in neuropsychiatric disorders, including neurodegenerative diseases (focusing on AD, FTD and preclinical stages) and Schizophrenia. Multimodal neuroimaging and psychophysical techniques are employed, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and electroencephalography (EEG). We are interested in developing computational methods to examine the network-level structural and functional brain connectivity to shed light on the neurobiological mechanism of disease, paving the way for early detection and intervention.
Candidates must have a passionate enthusiasm for research, a strong background in one of the following fields: computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychiatric disorders, neuroimaging analyses, mathematics/statistics/machine learning or related-fields. He/she should also possess the ability to take the initiative, work independently and be motivated to work in a highly collaborative and international research environment, and be able to demonstrate creativity, technical independence and excellent communication skills. Strong interest in studying dynamic functional connectivity and its relationships with cognition and disease would be a plus. Proven skills in fMRI/EEG/DTI data analyses is a plus but not necessary.
Key attractions are access to a 3T Prisma MR scanner and a MR compatible digital EEG system as well as collaboration opportunities with an excellent network of domestic and international scientists and doctors. The position will be two years with possible extension. Competitive package will be provided based on experience.
