The Neuroscience Research Center at Cook Children’s Health Care System and the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellow position of highly motivated individuals with a PhD in pediatric neuroimaging with emphasis on movement disorders. This training position, under the supervision of Prof. Papadelis, will provide practical training and experience in a research setting. The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a commitment to research, a collaborative work ethic, and strong communication skills, both written and verbal.
The mission of our center is to better understand pediatric neurological disorders that will aid prompt and precise diagnosis and treatment. The center is located in Fort Worth/Dallas area and is supported by a strong team of clinicians who offer pioneer treatments for children with movement disorders. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art neuroimaging tools, including a 306-channels Neuromag TRIUX MEG system, a 256-channels Magstim high-density EEG system, a Nexstim navigated TMS system, several 3 Tesla MRI #research scanners, and a robotic-rehabilitation system (AMADEO, Tyromotion).
Appointments will be made for one year but the positions are securely funded for three years depending on performance. The ideal startup month is January 2023, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
