Post Doctoral Fellow-imaging-genetics

first_imgWe are seeking two highly motivated postdoctoral fellows in thefield of imaging-genetics.The ideal candidate is expected to develop and apply statisticaland machine learning methods to understand the patterns ofneuroimaging-genetics for brain diseases with high heritability.The main research areas will include: (1) structural and functionalbrain connectome analysis; (2) GWAS; (3) genetics-imaging-braindisorder mediation analysis; and (4) graph based deep learning toexplain phenotypic variance. The candidates will be supported by astrong collaborative team who are world-known experts in multimodalbrain imaging and genetics for neuropsychiatric research and willprovide access to the large -sample imaging-genetics data (bothpreprocessed and original) from the consortiums including ENIGMA,HCP, and UK Biobank.The position is located in the University of Maryland School ofMedicine at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, on thegrounds of Spring Grove Hospital Center, Catonsville, MD.Candidates holding a doctoral degree in a quantitative field, suchas statistics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computationalbiology, computer science, mathematics or physics, with interest inimaging and/or genetics data analysis, and machine learning arepreferred.Candidates with strong computational skills (proficient in one ofthe programming languages R, Matlab and Python, and cloud computation experience) are especiallyencouraged to apply.Salary is commensurate with qualifications and will be equal to orexceed NIH postdoctoral stipends. Benefits will be in accordancewith the University of Maryland’s standard postdoctoralbenefits.Applicants must apply on-line through UMB/HR jobs and email thefollowing materials to [email protected]: (1) CurriculumVitae and (2) Contact information of 2 References.UMB is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
