Postdoc Position in Emerging Technologies in Whole-brain Imaging at Research Associate Prof. Garth Thompson's Research Group, iHuman

ShanghaiTech University

Location: Shanghai - China
Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 30th September 2022
Expires: 29th November 2022
 

Dr. Garth Thompson’s lab at ShanghaiTech University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to focus on emerging technologies in whole-brain imaging, primarily of rodents.

While much outstanding work has been done using brain imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), many new technologies have emerged in recent years which are still underutilized. Our lab has been working with PET and MRI data, but both us, and the iHuman Institute, would like to further develop our strength in imaging by incorporating some of the new techniques that have emerged in recent years.

Examples of the new technologies for whole-brain imaging being considered include: 1). TeraHertz (THz) imaging, which can non-destructively image structure and also report currently poorly understood biological properties. 2). Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) which can track the movement of drugs at high temporal resolution and can potentially also hypothetically move metal objects within a subject. 3). Simultaneous integration of in-vivo sensing techniques such as microbiosensors, microdialysis, and in-vivo mass-spectrometry with whole-brain imaging, e.g.

simultaneous microdialysis and MRI. Most of these new technologies are focused on rodent (rat and mouse) imaging. However, the potential for translation should be considered as well.

This position is open-ended based on the interests of qualified candidates. A high degree of independence is expected and encouraged.

We are currently using several rodent and human MRI and PET systems installed in Shanghai. The budget is already available, and space will be available to install new systems beginning in mid-2019 through 2020. We are in contact with providers of THz and MPI imaging technologies and have discussed installation with them already.

Roles:

  1. Help install, set up, and master usage of new brain imaging techniques.
  2. Design and conduct experiments with these technologies.
  3. Link these new techniques to our existing data and projects including most-importantly MRI and PET.
  4. Present results in scientific papers and conferences.

Requirements:

  1. PhD with graduate-level experience relevant to computational neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, integrative neuroscience, or systems neuroscience
  2. Publication record in peer-reviewed journals is required. Published work in one of the new technologies will be preferred. Candidates with strong evidence of collaboration across multiple fields will be preferred.
  3. Successful candidates must be proficient in English communication, and are expected to author, co-author, review, and edit English-language research manuscripts.

Please send (1) Resume or Curriculum Vitae, (2) Three references, and (3) One-paragraph description of expected research (highlighting new technologies of interest) to gthompson@shanghaitech.edu.cn and copy contact@garththompson.com
