The Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center is looking for a scientist to work on NIH-funded studies of modifiable risk and resilience factors including cardiovascular and social determinants of health related to cognitive and brain aging in diverse cohort studies of older adults led by Dr. Melissa Lamar.

Principal duties and responsibilities include working with multimodal brain MRI data derived from novel analysis techniques for in-vivo and ex-vivo data, combining this data with risk and resilience factors, clinical, and post-mortem data across cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses of diverse cohorts, and working closely with neuropsychologists, neurologists, neuropathologies, physicists, engineers, and biostatisticians on imaging projects on aging.

For those interested, clinical hours and patient care are also available for licensure and board certification requirements. A Ph.D. is required, preferably one related to neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, or related field; knowledge of cognitive aging highly desired, experience with neuroimaging is desired but not a requirement.

If interested, please send a CV and writing sample to Melissa_lamar@rush.edu

Note: We value candidates whose experience has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. Women and scholars from underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
