Postdoctoral Researcher

TYPE Post-Doctoral

The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Delaware is seeking a candidate for a postdoctoral researcher position in laboratories (https://sites.udel.edu/brainspeak/https://sites.udel.edu/in-lab/) focused on the neurobiology of stuttering and other speech-language disorders (PIs: Drs. Ho Ming Chow and Evan Usler). The successful candidate will be trained to carry out advanced analyses on existing functional and structural human neuroimaging data and develop new experiments using various neuroimaging and neuromodulation techniques (fMRI, DTI, simultaneous EEG-fMRI, tES, fNIRS). The candidate will also assist with collecting and analyzing MRI data from genetically modified mice. Salary is competitive and is set by the University rules depending on level of training. The initial appointment is for one year with possible renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance and available funding. The position has a starting date of June 1, 2022. Review of applications will begin on May 25, 2022. The search will remain open until the position is filled.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate will work closely with the PIs and their collaborators to perform the following duties: 1) collect and analyze human and animal neuroimaging (fMRI, DTI, T1 and EEG), 2) develop new techniques and pipelines for multimodal neuroimaging data, 3) assist in experimental design and implementation, 4) perform literature searches and report research findings, and 5) assist with training of undergraduate and graduate research assistants. 

Required Qualifications: 1) Candidates must have a PhD in speech science, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, engineering, computer science, communication sciences and disorders, or a related field, 2) a track record of publishing empirical research findings in peer-reviewed journals, 3) strong written and verbal communication skills, 4) some experience in programming and statistics.

Desired Qualifications: 1) Good familiarity with the published literature in the neural bases of developmental stuttering, speech motor control, language functions and brain development. 2) Prior experience with fMRI experimental design and neuroimaging data analysis software (SPM, AFNI, FSL, Freesurfer, MRtric, etc.). 3) basic understanding of MATLAB and Linux programming, 4) experience in handling mice and animal MRI.
