POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW IN NEUROIMAGING AND GAIT ANALYSIS
The Department of Medicine (Division of Neurology) and Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University
of Alberta have positions for a postdoctoral fellow.
The postdoctoral fellow, co-supervised by members of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, depending on
specific project, at the Peter S Allen MR Research Centre (Drs. Christian Beaulieu, director; Alan Wilman and
Nikolai Malykhin) will be involved in MRI image analysis using quantitative methods. Currently scans are being
collected as part of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration of Aging (CCNA) and the Functional
Assessment of Vascular Reactivity cohorts (FAVR). Local imaging projects include the application of structural,
diffusion tensor and quantitative susceptibility mapping to neurodegenerative and vascular disorders. The fellow
would need to be able to analyze scanning data using existing methods and to develop novel methods for
analysis. A key task will be to write papers suitable for submission for publication, therefore a strong record of
publications is required. Strong interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Additional duties will include
training and assisting with supervision of graduate students. A PhD, MD/PhD or MD with postdoctoral research
training is required.
The minimum starting stipend for this position is $40,000 per annum, and will be commensurate with the
experience of the successful candidate. This position is available immediately and the appointment is for one year
with possibility for extension dependent on funding.
Candidates should submit a cover letter including research interests, complete CV including a summary of
graduate thesis research and post-doctoral research (if applicable), transcripts, and the names and contact
information (address, phone number and email address) of three referees to:
