Job Description

We seek a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our multidisciplinary research team. Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are heterogeneous conditions, which makes differentiating between them and their subtypes very challenging. Our lab focuses on leveraging advanced neuroimaging techniques and deep learning algorithms to better understand brain structure and function in health and disease, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research projects, including but not limited to federated learning, explainable AI, and contrastive learning in neuroimaging, among others.

The Neuroimage Analytics Laboratory (NAL) and the Biggs Institute Neuroimaging Core (BINC) will be your work environment. We build advanced neuroimage analytical techniques to derive discovery. Data-driven approaches are of particular interest in our lab, as machine learning and machine intelligence will guide the scientist toward the finding. On a broader goal, our tools help deliver precise diagnostics on an individual’s level and ultimately could guide treatment progress.

We are part of the Biggs Institute (https://biggsinstitute.org), which is being established as a flagship, free-standing institute within the University of Texas Health San Antonio (UTHSA), with the mission of establishing an interdisciplinary, integrated program to provide comprehensive clinical care and undertake innovative and important research into the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative conditions, including vascular contributions to dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and frontotemporal dementia. It has strong institutional and community support and will benefit from existing resources within UTHSA, such as the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, the Center for Biomedical Neuroscience, the School of Nursing, the Cancer Center, and the Research Imaging Institute, along with the San Antonio campus of the UT Health Houston School of Public Health.

Responsibilities

  • Develop, test, and validate novel methods with multimodal neuroimaging data
    Apply your validated methods to large-scale research and real-life everyday clinical routine neuroimaging data
  • Willingness to work in teams within NAL, BINC, and Biggs and with national and international collaborators
  • Communicate your research results to the larger communities through publications in international conferences and journals
  • Work with a great deal of independence in achieving research goals

Application Deadline: 2024-04-13
