AVAILABLE: 3-year Postdoctoral Position in Neuroimaging of Acute to Chronic Stroke

The Schnur laboratory at the Baylor College of Medicine invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship as part of the NIH project “Language and Neural Recovery from Stroke”. Our laboratory enrolls participants in the acute phase of stroke for behavioral testing and neuroimaging from the three Houston Texas Medical Center’s comprehensive stroke centers. The goal of the project is to understand the neural and cognitive systems which contribute to recovery of language in the year following stroke. We enjoy collaborations with research groups in Houston as well as nationally and internationally. Our laboratory is a 10-minute walk to patient recruitment sites, 1-minute from our Center for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CAMRI; https://www.bcm.edu/research/centers/advanced-mr-imaging), and a 5-minute walk to the Houston METRO Rail. At CAMRI, we collect quantitative and functional neuroimaging from patients and neurotypical controls on the state-of-the art 3T Siemens Prisma scanner.

Required: The successful candidate should have a PhD in a field related to cognitive neuroscience. Expertise in human fMRI and/or quantitative neuroimaging data analysis as evidenced by the Ph.D. thesis and/or publications is required. Desirable additional qualifications include experience in psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, and/or cognitive neuropsychology.
