Research Technologist, Boston, MA

The Division of Newborn Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital / Harvard
Medical School invites applications for a Research Technologist. The
successful candidate will carry out studies on human brain development by
using a combination of different neuroimaging techniques, such as MEG, EEG
and DTI. The focus of the studies is two common pediatric neurological
disorders: epilepsy and cerebral palsy. Previous experience with MEG and/or
multichannel EEG and data analysis skills is an advantage.

A candidate for this research position may hold a MSc or a PhD degree,
e.g., in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or a related field in
engineering. Practical experience in the acquisition of neuroimaging data
is required. Appointments will be normally made for one year with a
possibility to extend depending on further funding. The ability to
communicate well with scientific colleagues and pediatric participants in
our experiments is essential. This position is best for a person interested
in working with newborns, babies and children, studying human brain
development either as a career or as a training opportunity.

Experimental setup of pediatric neuroimaging studies.

Acquisition/collection of MEG and related data (i.e. EEG, EOG, etc) from
healthy as well as sick newborn, babies, and children.

Analysis and evaluation of MEG and related data by using sophisticated
software analysis tools such as BrainStorm, MNE, FieldTrip, etc.

Modification of neuroimaging tools to adapt to the specific project

Minimum qualifications:

MSc in the area of Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Computer
Engineering or a related field in engineering.
