Full Benefits Package


Applications are currently being accepted for a data analyst position in the Design, Acquisition and Neuromodulation Laboratories within the Center for Biomedical Imaging and Neuromodulation (C-BIN), under the direction of Stan J. Colcombe, PhD. A primary responsibility of this position will be the development and implementation of state-of-the-art image processing pipelines for functional parcellation of fMRI datasets. The analyst will also support integration of electrophysiological data from ecog electrode arrays into the analytic pipelines. Successful candidates must have sufficient technical skills (e.g. Python, R, bash, C/C++) to both modify existing processing pipelines and develop applications for novel data analysis strategies. As experience grows, the analyst will be expected to provide supervision for junior researchers in their analytic efforts.


  • Implement novel signal processing, machine learning, and statistical methods in Python, R and C/C++.
  • Perform image processing and analysis on very large fMRI, MRI, DTI and ASL datasets using high performance computing infrastructures.
  • Liaison between C-BIN members and collaborators.
  • Maintain neuroinformatic infrastructure.
  • Mentor and, in some cases, supervise junior lab members, such as other research associates and graduate students.


The minimum qualifications for a successful candidate include:

  • BS in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or other related scientific fields. MS preferred.
  • Proficient in programming Python, R, C/C++, and proficiency in Linux environment.
  • Extensive experience with one or more MRI data analysis packages (e.g. AFNI, FSL, SPM or Freesurfer).
  • Prior experience with functional MRI or diffusion imaging processing pipelines.
  • Proficiency in the application of multivariate analytic techniques. Machine learning theory strongly preferred.
  • Knowledge of cognitive and/or clinical neuroscience (preferred).
  • Ability to work effectively in a very collaborative and multidisciplinary environment.
  • Anticipated start date: as soon as possible
