 Faculty Opening: Cognitive Neuroscientist

Cognitive Neuroscientist

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease (Mesulam Center) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seek a full-time tenure track Investigator at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.  The research will take place at the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease.  The center contains an NIH-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center.  Extensively characterized patients and controls of the Alzheimer’s Disease Center will be available for the candidate’s research.  In addition to multi-modal neuroimaging (e.g., structural and functional MRI, diffusion imaging, and PET), electrophysiological brain mapping capabilities will also be available.  Translational research related to novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches will be encouraged.  Depending on the research areas of the successful candidate, the Mesulam Center brain bank will enable investigations on the post-mortem correlates of in vivo cognitive and structural disease markers.

Qualified candidates will be expected to establish an independent laboratory synergistic with existing Mesulam Center programs on cognition and imaging in dementia.  Successful candidates may also have a background in computer science, bioinformatics, and advanced statistics.

The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled. When applying, please upload this completed list of references form to suggest the names of individuals who could write letters of reference on your behalf.

 Fellowship Opportunities

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Neuroimaging of Aging and Dementia

Northwestern University’s Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease has a postdoctoral fellowship in Neuroimaging of Aging and Dementia. The fellow will focus on analyzing MR as well as amyloid and tau PET data for our NIA-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center (P30). The fellow may develop, adapt, implement and/or optimize analysis pipelines for our newly funded AD Center Imaging Core, which will substantially contribute to imaging biomarker discoveries and enhance data sharing procedures. The fellow may participate in publications and presentations resulting from the work.

The fellow will work with Dr. Rogalski (Imaging Core Leader) and her collaborators Dr. Todd Parrish (Director of the Center for Translation Imaging) and Lei Wang (Director of the Applied Computational Anatomy Lab) at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

Successful candidates will have a PhD in neuroscience, physics, psychology, bioengineering or a related field. Experience with analysis of sMRI, DTI, rsfMRI and/or PET is required with a particular emphasis on multimodal approaches.

Interested applicants should send a CV and cover letter stating experience and interests, 2-3 peer-reviewed publications, and at least two letters of recommendation.

The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.

Please send application materials to ADC@northwestern.edu.
