The newly formed Brain Health Imaging Institute (BHII) in the Department of Radiology of Weill Cornell Medicine is seeking highly qualified applicants for two postdoctoral research scientist positions in the functional neuroimaging field to join the Quantitative Neuroimaging Laboratory for duration of up to three years. These postdoctoral researchers will work with the state of the art MR equipment, including 7T human system (to be installed by late 2020), 3T (including 1 Siemens Prisma and 1 GE Signa Premier), and PET/MR (2 Siemens and 1 GE units including a one-of-a-kind interventional unit), to investigate negative BOLD signal and its utilization for understanding brain functionality in healthy and diseased populations. The BHII at Weill Cornell Medicine implements cutting edge neuroimaging methods to study the mechanisms of healthy brain function as well as healthy brain aging processes in contrast to the brain malfunctioning during verity of neurodegenerative pathologies and diseases. While the primary focus is neuroimaging, our research includes multimodal data such as neuropsychological assessments and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers to define disease etiology and progression particularly for Alzheimer’s Disease. Weill Cornell Medical College, located in the upper east side of New York City, has a vibrant biomedical research community and strong ties to the main Cornell campus in Ithaca and the Tech campus in New York City.
Weill Cornell Medicine is a comprehensive academic medical center that's committed to excellence in patient care, scientific discovery, and the education of future physicians in New York City and around the world. Our doctors and scientists-faculty from Weill Cornell Medical College, Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and the Weill Cornell Physician Organization-are engaged in world-class clinical care and cutting-edge research that connect patients to the latest treatment innovations and prevention strategies. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side's scientific corridor, Weill Cornell Medicine's powerful network of collaborators extends to its parent university Cornell University; to Qatar, where an international campus offers a U.S. medical degree; and to programs in Tanzania, Haiti, Brazil, Austria and Turkey. Our medical practices serve communities throughout New York City, and our faculty provide comprehensive care at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital, and NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens. At Weill Cornell Medicine, we work together to treat each individual, not just their conditions or illnesses, as we strive to deliver the finest possible care for our patients - the center of everything we do
