Dr. Garth Thompson’s Lab at ShanghaiTech University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in multimodal MRI. Our research focuses on understanding how neuromodulation and brain metabolism impact the whole brain’s function. However to understand this, we must integrate studies both between animals and human subjects, and also between MRI and other modalities such as positron emission tomography (PET), multi-frequency electrophysiology, optical imaging, etc.
Successful candidates will develop novel experimental protocols and data analysis techniques which can allow scientists to link molecular and cellular knowledge to measurements on a whole-brain level. In addition, working with collaborators at the iHuman Institute and local hospitals, we can guide drug and treatment development through a better understanding of disease mechanisms.
This position is open-ended based on the interests of qualified candidates. A high degree of independence is expected and encouraged.
The systems we are currently using include the Bruker 9.4T MRI at the Shanghai Institute of Neuroscience and the 11.7T MRI at Fudan Zhangjiang Campus in collaboration with local professors, and the 3T Siemens Biograph mMR PET/fMRI at Ruijin hospital in collaboration with a local doctor. By the end of 2019, one human MRI and one animal PET/MRI will be installed on the ShanghaiTech campus as well.
