We are looking to recruit a new postdoctoral associate for a large collaborative project on the anatomical development of the human cerebellum, funded by the Raynor Cerbellar Project. The overall goal of the project is to develop a high-resolution normative model of human cerebellar development across the entire life span. The successful candidate will join the Diedrichsen Lab (Western University, Canada) and will work with a team of colleagues at Erasmus Medical Center, the Donders Institute (Netherlands), McGill, Dalhousie, Sick Kids, and UBC (Canada). A PhD degree in Neuroscience, Statistics, Computer Science, Engineering, Psychology, Medicine or related fields is required. Expertise in machine learning, analysis of medical imaging data, and/or normative modeling is highly desired. The project is funded for a 3 year duration, with the initial contract for 2 years. The exact starting date is negotiable, but would ideally be April 1st, 2024.
The Diedrichsen Lab is located in the Western Institute of Neuroscience in London, Ontario, Canada, and is part of the Sensorymotor Superlab and the Computational Brain Sciences group at Western. Systems and cognitive neuroscience is a key area of research strength at Western University, with more than 70 Principal Investigators and 200 trainees. High-resolution imaging at 9.5T, 7T, and 3T is available in-house. The annual salary is $58,000 at minimum.
