Neuroimaging Quantitative Analyst

We are seeking an experienced analyst to lead computational analyses as part of a multidisciplinary team of clinical investigators working with functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), using a research-dedicated 3.0 T Siemens Skyra MRI scanner housed in our state-of-the-art Neuroimaging Center.

 

Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Perform image analysis and image processing, including functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and quantitative analysis of MR imaging.

  • Recommend efficient algorithms, write code for specific applications, and automate research image-analysis tasks.

  • Learn, evaluate, recommend, and implement new image-processing tools.

  • Create and maintain a library of programs with appropriate documentation.

  • Perform image quality inspections both routinely and in conjunction with scanner upgrades or other equipment changes, and serve as a consultant in upgrade planning, purchasing, and installation of imaging-related equipment.

  • Assist scientists in writing grants and other research-funding applications, scientific papers, and progress reports.

  • Provide and/or supervise individualized training for staff members for data processing on imaging-related research projects.

  • Assist in carrying out statistical modeling of neuroimaging data.

  • Collaborate with IT staff to ensure that the most up-to-date software is installed.

  • Maintain/oversee shared informational resources (e.g., internal library of imaging-related audiovisual media).

  • Develop and extend professional and technical skills to ensure ongoing competence.

 

Requirements:

  • Two to five years of experience in biomedical image analysis in a high-demand academic/research environment.

  • Graduate degree(s) in computer science, biomedical engineering, and/or statistics, with specialization in brain MR analysis, or the equivalent.
