The Alan and Lorraine Bressler Clinical and Research Program for Autism Spectrum Disorder was founded at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2007 to offer comprehensive evaluation of and ongoing clinical care for intellectually capable populations suffering from autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and associated psychopathology. The Bressler Program conducts neuroimaging research in collaborations with John & Susan Gabrieli in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT, the Brain Imaging Center at McLean Hospital, and Randy Buckner at Harvard University.
The Bressler Program is seeking a full-time neuroimaging fellow with a strong technical background and experience in multi-modal neuroimaging and analysis (e.g., SPM, FSL, AFNI). Candidates must hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant field including (but not limited to) neuroscience, biomedical sciences, computer science, or biomedical engineering. Candidates must also demonstrate strong computer programming (e.g., bash shell scripts, python, matlab) and statistical skills (e.g, R, python, SPSS, STATA), strong verbal and written communication skills, and demonstrated ability to work well with others and manage time efficiently.
This fellowship offers training in state-of-the-art neuroimaging data analysis under the mentorship of collaborators at MIT and Harvard. In turn, the successful applicant will be expected to design, execute, and analyze MRI studies, and report findings to peer-reviewed journals. Additionally, the incumbent will provide much-needed expertise to advance the program’s neuroimaging research in autism spectrum disorder and associated neurocognitive deficits and psychopathology.
The fellowship will be a three-year position with a provision to continue beyond fellowship as a staff neuroimaging analyst.
