Working in Kessler Foundation’s Rocco Ortenzio Neuroimaging Center (Rocco Ortenzio Neuroimaging Center | Kessler Foundation), the position’s primary focus will be on analyzing functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data as part of a multidisciplinary team of researchers, and writing programs and/or scripts to aid in data analysis and maintenance.
- Conduct image analysis and image processing, including functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and quantitative analysis of MR imaging.
- Recommend efficient algorithms; write code for specific applications; and automate research image-analysis tasks.
- Evaluate, recommend, and implement new image-processing tools.
- Create and maintain a library of programs with appropriate documentation.
- Perform image-quality inspections; serve as a consultant in upgrade planning, purchasing, and installation of imaging-related equipment.
- Assist scientists in the writing of grant and other research funding applications, scientific papers, progress reports, etc.
- Provide and/or supervise training for staff members for data processing on all imaging-related research projects.
- Assist in carrying out statistical modeling of neuroimaging data.
- Collaborate with IT staff members to ensure the new analyzing tools are developed properly and the most up-to-date software is installed.
- Maintain and oversee shared informational resources (e.g., internal library of imaging-related audiovisual media).
- Develop proficiency in performing neuroimaging data acquisition, and assist in accessory data acquisitions (e.g., ePrime, Biopac, etc.).
- Master’s degree in computer science, biomedical engineering, or statistics with specialization in brain MR analysis, or the equivalent.
- Two to five years of experience in biomedical image analysis.
- Extensive knowledge of structural and functional MRI analysis.
