We want you!
We are seeking candidates for
An ITC Neuroinformatics Manager
for the newly created Neuroinformatics Collaboratory of Pedro Valdes-Sosa, 1000 Talent Professor of China (http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=0M2PVJIAAAAJ) at the Key Lab for Neuroinformation, University of Electronic Sciences and Technology of China, UESTC Chengdu China (www.neuro.uestc.edu.cn ).
This is also the Asian venue of the joint Chinese-Cuba Laboratory for Frontiers Research in Translational Neuroscience of which he is the Director. The Cuban venue is at the Cuban Neuroscience Center (CNEURO)(www.cneuro.cu ) of which Prof. Valdes-Sosa is the General Vice-Director for Research.
Our laboratory focuses broadly on Neuroinformatics, Signal and Neuroimage analysis, Biophysics, Neural Modeling, and the application of these techniques to translational research to impact on the management of brain disorders, importantly with an impact on primary health career http://www.neuroinformatics-collaboratory.org/.
This laboratory will be the link between different groups at UESTC and CNEURO, which include the Key Laboratory for Neuroinformation of Professor Dezhong Yao, the Laboratory for Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience SCAN of Professor Keith Kendrick and the Cognitive Neuroscience Department of Maria Antonieta Bobes and Mitchell Valdes at CNEURO. The Collaboratory will include several other research groups in the world as well as have close ties to the laboratory of Neuroimaging (LONI) (www.loni.usc.edu) and the International Neuroinformatics Portal (INCF www.incf.org ) and the Brain Imaging Center of the Montreal Neurological Institute (BIC-MNI).
The focus will be on Multimodal neuroimaging and psychophysical techniques are employed, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, and electroencephalography (EEG). We are interested in developing computational methods to examine the network-level structural and functional brain connectivity to shed light on the neurobiological mechanism of disease, paving the way for early detection and intervention. We are interested in develop new mathematical and statistical techniques for processing neurofeedback in real time using fMRI and EEG and further application in clinical setting to modify altered brain circuits. Key attractions are access to a 3T MR scanner and a MR compatible digital EEG system as well as collaboration opportunities with an excellent network of domestic and international scientists and doctors. These are excellent positions for people who would like to engage in exciting research in Chengdu which is a very pleasant city and UESTC is one of the most important academic center in electronic sciences and Neuroscience in China and to establish links with premier research groups in the world. Starting salary and other benefits could be negotiate depending of the experience and qualifications of the candidate.
Manager of the ICT (Information Computer Technologies) aspects of the Neuroinformatics-Collaboratory of the Pedro Valdes-Sosa.
The position involves the direction of the High Performance Computing HPC cluster and lab management. The ideal candidate would have excellent interpersonal and organizational skills and substantial research experience using computing methods, cluster and signal processing. Experience computer in management of IT infrastructure programming, including number crunching and data analysis in Matlab. The candidate would preferably possess a Ph.D. in any of the following specialties: Computer Science, one of the IT related Engineer-ing disciplines, Physics, Mathematics. The most important conditions would be fluent in English, proof of achieve-ments and the interest in learning. The position would be for a duration of 2-3 years.
PhDs and Post Docs will be involved in exciting research related to the main topics of the lab. Guaranteed will be work directed at both creating new methods for Neuroinformatics as well as translational neuroscience.
To apply, send a cover letter, a resume, and a letter of recommendation from a former advisor or head of department to our contact email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The positions will be two years with possible extension and will remain open until filled.
