A two-year post-doc position is currently available, as of February 2008, at Stockholm Brain Insitute (www.stockholmbrain.se), Karolinska Institutet (www.ki.se), Stockholm, Sweden. The position is connected to a longitudinal study called “Learning and Memory in Children and young Adults” which is presently being conducted at Stockholm Brain Institute in collaboration with a number of other universities in Sweden. As part of this study, we are currently acquiring functional and structural MRI data, performing cognitive testing and acquiring genetic data from children and young adults.
The responsibilities of the post-doc will include pre-processing and analysis of functional and structural MR images, and linking the results with the genetic and cognitive data. There will also be opportunities to conduct independent MR research. Applicants should be experienced in image processing and statistical analysis, usage of neuroimaging software (SPM, FSL) and have knowledge of Matlab and UNIX. The post-doc will be affiliated with the group for Development Cognitive Neuroscience (www.klingberglab.se) led by Prof. Torkel Klingberg. This group is part of Stockholm Brain Institute, an inter-disciplinary cognitive neuroscience centre at Karolinska Institutet.
