Dear friends and colleagues,
I hope you are all doing well, We are contacting you because we have a great opportunity to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to work on very exciting projects involving simultaneous high-density EEG and fMRI recordings in patients with sleep disorder.
This postdoc fellow will be co-supervised by my main collaborator at PERFORM Dr Thien Thanh Dang-Vu and by myself
The fellow will be working on different projects, including a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)-funded study examining the neural mechanisms of central disorders of hypersomnolence (i.e., narcolepsy, idiopathic hypersomnia).
The fellow will also have access to several datasets from other projects and cohorts to examine the impact of sleep disturbances on cognition and brain function. The fellow will be actively involved in the recruitment, data acquisition and analyses of participants with sleep
disturbances, and will co-lead a team of research assistants, graduate and undergraduate
trainees involved in these projects. The fellow will also benefit from several collaborations with other sleep and neuroimaging labs, in Montreal and internationally (e.g., Netherlands).
The fellow will be based in the Department of Health, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at
Concordia University in Montreal (Quebec), in the Department of Physics of Concordia University and at the PERFORM Center
(http://www.concordia.ca/research/perform.html). The fellow will also be affiliated with the
Centre de Recherche de l’Institut Universitaire de Gériatrie de Montréal (CRIUGM;
http://www.criugm.qc.ca/fr.html). At both PERFORM Center and CRIUGM, the fellow will have access to multiple platforms fully dedicated to research such as a Sleep Lab and an Imaging Suite (including a 3-Tesla MRI, MR compatible high-density EEG, fNIRS). The Sleep, Cognition and Neuroimaging Lab (SCNLab), led by Dr. Dang-Vu, includes 5 bedrooms equipped with polysomnography and high-density EEG systems, actigraphy devices and cognitive testing equipment, and direct access to MRI research facilities within the same building.
Required education/skills: Ph.D. degree (or close to completion) in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, health sciences, or a related field (e.g.,electrical engineering, psychology, biology, ...), excellent organizational skills, autonomy and ability to work in team, good writing skills and established publication record. Experience in one or more aspects of the research themes, particularly in neuroimaging and/or sleep research, is an asset.
Salary will be determined according to the level of training and past experiences. This
appointment will be renewable on a yearly basis, contingent on satisfactory performance.
You can apply for this position by sending your curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation to Dr Dang Vu and myself. Request for any additional information should also be directed to us. Review of applications will begin as they are received and will continue until the position has been filled. Start date is flexible. Only those candidates selected to interview will be contacted.
