Current Position Openings

Postdoctoral Position:

MULTIMODAL MRI AND CLINICAL STUDY OF ASD

Brain Development Imaging Laboratories

An NIH funded position for a postdoctoral fellow is available at the Brain Development Imaging Laboratories (BDIL) of the Dept. of Psychology, San Diego State University. The position will combine clinical evaluations of children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) with multimodal MR imaging. Current research at BDIL applies fMRI, functional connectivity MRI, multishell diffusion-weighted imaging, anatomical MRI, and (in collaboration) magnetoencephalography, in combination with behavioral and neuropsychological measures, to investigate biomarkers and variants of ASD. BDIL collaborates with MR physicists at UCSD (fmri.ucsd.edu/) and SDSU (mri.sdsu.edu), and has full access to 3 research-dedicated 3T human scanners at the two institutions.

Applicants should have combined experience in the clinical study of ASD (including diagnostics) and in MR imaging (data acquisition, preprocessing, analysis). Applicants who have experience in the study of children will be preferred.

Please e-mail CV, research statement, reprints, and 3 letters to Ralph-Axel Müller at: rmueller@sdsu.edu.

 

Research Staff Position:

LABORATORY COORDINATOR

Brain Development Imaging Laboratories

The individual in this position will be responsible for overall research coordination and administration of research projects at the Brain Development Imaging Laboratories (BDIL) including recruitment and tracking of research participants, oversight of data quality and databases for cognitive measurements, and assorted administrative duties.  Projects at BDIL are funded by the National Institutes of Health to study the brain bases of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and how brain and behavior change across the lifespan. We implement cognitive assessments and brain imaging techniques (anatomical, functional and diffusion MRI), in order to identify biological (brain-based) and behavioral markers of autism. We aim to understand how ASD manifests across the lifespan, from the 1st years of life through mid- and late adulthood.
