Research Engineer Positions
Functional Neuroimaging Scientist
We are seeking a well-trained scientist who is motivated to develop and apply expertise in a neuroimaging lab, housing and analyzing multiple thousands of imaging datasets. Especially sought are candidates with expertise in both resting and task-fMRI data. The candidate will work on priority NIH projects within the Human Connectome Project and the Science of Behavior Change initiative. In this role, they will oversee the development of novel analyses of large imaging samples, with a focus on reproducible quantification protocols and replication across legacy datasets. There is the opportunity to jump immediately into the analysis of the rich legacy datasets, and to drive publications from the outcomes.  

This position is available as part of NIH-funded projects. It will be based at Stanford, within the Williams PanLab, and work within an excellent and interdisciplinary team of faculty investigators, postdocs and research coordinators. The lab encompasses a thriving team of engineers, fellows, and research coordinators as well as PIs spanning fundamental neuroimaging techniques through clinical neuroscience. 

REQUIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Masters or higher level qualifications in a field(s) relevant to functional neuroimaging and computation with neuroimaging data. 
  1. High-level experience with functional magnetic resonance imaging.  
  2. High-level experience with python, Matlab and experience with R or similar scripting environments. 
  3. Experience with imaging analysis software such as SPM, FSL.
  4. Substantial experience with SPM and with connectivity toolboxes is desirable. 
  5. A clear motivation to pursue research in neuroimaging applied to develop a deep understanding of the human brain and relevant to the brain network disruptions underlying mental disorders.
  6. Self-motivated with a preference for working within a collaborative environment
