10Postdoctoral Autism fMRI Researc
Location: La Jolla, CA 92093
Classified Postdoctoral Autism fMRI Researcher

The UC San Diego Autism Center of Excellence will hire a Postdoctoral Autism fMRI Researcher for a newly funded, large 5-year NIH autism fMRI grant. The Center is in the Department of Neuroscience at the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Despite tens of millions of dollars spent annually on autism research in the US, "precision" medicine does not exist in any meaningful way for ASD infants and toddlers. The Center's new NIH fMRI grant will address this serious gap in knowledge and identify functional biomarkers that are much more proximal and relevant to the early-age clinical problem and possible solutions. The successful Postdoctoral Autism fMRI Researcher applicant will be expected to take a leading role in state-of-the-art functional imaging, powerful analytic techniques, and ASD-relevant language and social emotion activation paradigms and resting state to discover in n=175 ASD and typical 1-2 year olds neural biomarkers of variation in early social and language clinical presentation, trajectories, and outcome at age 3-4 years. The Postdoctoral Resercher also be in a key position to also analyze results of these new experiments in combination with existent Center neuroimaging dataset of >400 ASD and typical 1 to 4 year olds, and thereby reveal meaningful, clinically-relevant prognostic biomarkers and biotargets for future experimental therapeutic paradigms.

In addition to spearheading the specific new studies, the chosen Postdoctoral applicant will also have the exciting and career enhancing opportunity to learn about and engage in other aspects of the Center's research on the developmental neurobiology of autism, including studies of molecular, cellular, anatomical and functional abnormalities associated with autism. Center studies currently involve fMRI, MRI, DTI, functional genomics, molecular and cellular neurodevelopmental biology, cortical laminar development and organization, and postmortem research. Center research has been nationally and internationally recognized for its excellence, and funded studies integrate behavioral, developmental, genomic, neuroanatomical and neurofunctional findings to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the developmental neurobiology of this disorder. The Center has ten Ph.D. faculty and staff and numerous outstanding collaborators locally, nationally and internationally. In the past ten years, the Center has been awarded more than $40,000,000 in grants and currently has more than $10,000,000 in NIH grants. The Center's sleep fMRI in ASD and typical infants and toddlers constitute an important percentage of all published infant ASD fMRI studies.

We seek Postdoctoral applicants with a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent and proven expertise in state-of-the-field fMRI and MRI analyses, advanced biostatistical skills, and interest in taking a leading role in conducting innovative multimodality neuroimaging and functional genomic studies of neurodevelopmental trajectories and clinical correlates in ASD. Neuroimaging skills should include experience with SPM, AFNI, and/or FSL; and FreeSurfer, BrainVisa, Human Connectome and/or similar analysis pipelines. Thus, applicants should have experience in fMRI mapping and time-series analyses, automated cortical- and subcortical segmentation and advanced diffusion tractography. Preferred computational skills include coding experience with MATLAB, Python, and/or R. Competitive applicants are expected to have skill with longitudinal data analysis, machine learning, network neuroscience, and/or other advanced neuroimaging or other multivariate biostatistical techniques (ICA, DCM, PLS, etc). Experience performing and collecting auditory or visual neuroimaging paradigms and analyses is preferred. Experience with collecting neuroimaging data from infants and/or children is preferred, although strong experience collecting such data from adults may be acceptable. Candidates must have a track record of productivity, leadership and success in working in a team environment. Candidates must have significant knowledge of the clinical and developmental attributes of autism, demonstrated interest and experience with autism, and good knowledge of cutting-edge autism neuroimaging research.

Qualified postdoctoral applicants should submit a current CV, a personal statement describing their experience and interests, and contact information for three references to ecourchesne@ucsd.edu. At UC San Diego, postdoctoral salaries range from $48,216/year to $58,560 depending on qualifications and experience, and the University offers medical insurance and benefits. The position is available at this time and funding is available for the next 5 years but dependent on successful performance of research and publications.

UC San Diego is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to gender, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status.

With approximately 478,000 students at 23 campuses - stretching from Humboldt in the north to San Diego in the south - the CSU promotes student success through a high-quality education that prepares students to become leaders in the workforce, making the CSU a vital economic engine for California.

The CSU creates opportunities for the diverse students of California to reach their educational goals and become leaders in their communities. Annually, approximately 110,000 students earn degrees from the CSU, enhancing the social fabric of the state. Last year, the CSU launched Graduation Initiative 2025, establishing bold new goals for student success and degree completion. Endorsed by the CSU Board of Trustees, the initiative goals seek to essentially double the CSU four-year graduation rate, increase six-year graduation rates for first-time students and eliminate equity gaps. Through Graduation Initiative 2025, the CSU will ensure that all students have the opportunity to graduate according to their personal goals, positively impacting their future and producing the graduates needed to power California and the nation.

Position Description:

To achieve the ambitious goals of Graduation Initiative 2025, the CSU is restructuring its approach to developmental education, addressing the well-being of students, reexamining existing financial need practices, and improving enrollment management and planning. Supporting these efforts, the Assistant Director of Research and Programs is responsible for gathering research and data, and providing systemwide project management and coordination to assist with policy implementation and the adoption of best practices.

The incumbent will manage, coordinate and report on programs and practices supported by external funding, and will research and assess existing and emerging programs and policies at the federal, state and university level.

This position will work in conjunction with campus student success committees, provosts/vice presidents of Academic Affairs, vice presidents of Student Affairs and campus leaders to support Graduation Initiative 2025. The Assistant Director of Research and Programs will work closely with the Public Affairs, Communications, and Advocacy and State Relations departments in preparation to testify at legislative hearings or present at systemwide conferences and advisory committee meetings. The incumbent will work alongside Assistant Vice Chancellor Minor to prepare updates, briefings and reports on program outcomes for division leadership, the chancellor and Board of Trustee meetings.

Qualifications:

Successful candidates will have - at minimum - a Master's Degree in social science (Education, Psychology, Psychometrics, Sociology, Social Work, Counseling, Higher Education, Public Health, Public Policy, Economics, etc.); at least one year of coursework in research design or research methods using statistical software; and three to five years of experience with higher education programs intended to support student access, success, retention and completion. In addition, candidates must demonstrate experience in project management with the ability to track progress and coordinate highly detailed projects in a well-organized and efficient manner. Strong research skills with emphasis on higher education, advocacy and educational equity, are required. Additionally, candidates must have the ability to work as part of a team, be adaptive learners and thrive in a fast-paced and diverse environment.

Application Period:

Review of applications will begin on January 22, 2018, and continue until the position is filled. Apply online at http://www.calstate.edu/HRS/jobs.shtml. Please direct any questions to Dr. Sabrina Sanders, Director of Student Affairs Projects & Initiatives at ssanders@calstate.edu.

2. a cover letter addressed to the Selection Committee discussing your strengths and weaknesses as they apply to the desirable qualifications and representative duties stated in the position announcement;

3. teaching philosophy statement (attach this to the "Other Document 1" link), addressing questions such as

a. What do you feel are the best strategies for supporting students who have been historically marginalized?

If you would prefer, or if your letter writers would prefer to submit a confidential letter, you can enter their names and e-mail addresses in the online system, and the system will send an e-mail requesting them to submit a letter of recommendation via our online system. IMPORTANT: The system will NOT e-mail your letter writers until you have completely finished applying and receive a confirmation number from the system. Therefore, if you use this option, it is recommended that you finish applying at least 7 days prior to the closing date so that your letter writers have enough time to submit their letters. NOTE: Entering your letter writers' names and email addresses in order for them to receive an email generated by the system is a separate step from just listing them in the "References" section of the Application for Academic Employment;

6. two sample syllabi, written by you, for two of the following courses: children in a diverse society, children with special needs, infant/toddler, child/family/community, or any curriculum course (art, music, math/science, language/literature, or program planning);

9. Transcripts. a. Transcripts of ALL college degrees/coursework needed to qualify for this position; unofficial or legible copies are acceptable but must indicate that the degree(s) has been conferred, if applicable. A diploma will not be accepted in lieu of transcripts. An equivalency narrative and supporting documentation must be submitted at the time of application if (i) you do not possess the EXACT degree major(s) listed in the Minimum Qualifications section or (ii) your qualifying degree will not be awarded before the position begins. (View the instructions for equivalency requests at http://www.miracosta.edu/administrative/hr/downloads/Equivalency_009.pdf.)

If your qualifying degree is in progress but will be conferred BEFORE the position begins in August 2018, then you must also include a written statement from your adviser indicating the anticipated degree CONFERRAL date.

All degrees and units used to satisfy the minimum qualifications must be from postsecondary institutions accredited by an accreditation agency recognized by either the U.S. Department of Education or the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation. If your degree/coursework is from a college or university anywhere outside of the United States, you must submit a detailed evaluation from a professional evaluation agency. A partial list of agencies can be found at http://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/leaflets/cl635.pdf. Transcripts or translations in English still require the evaluation to show the U.S. equivalence of your degree.

b. If needed to meet the minimum qualifications, a copy (front and back) of your fully satisfied, lifetime California Community College credential authorizing instruction in the appropriate subject matter.

NOTE: When you "APPLY FOR THIS POSTING," you will eventually be asked to answer the additional question(s) listed below. Your answers will appear toward the bottom of the application form.
