Coordination and curation of data from clinical functional imaging studies, intraoperative mapping data, and neuropsychological measures.
The goal of the project is to use multi-modal data to identify critical nodes of brain function (language, motor, …) to determine sites of stimulation, impact on cognitive performance, and predict surgical outcomes.
This position will report to Dr. Parrish in Radiology but will be highly integrated with Dr. Marc Slutsky (Neurology), and Matt Tate (Neurosurgery). Dr. Slutsky’s work focuses on ECoG mapping and identifying critical regions of motor and language networks. Dr. Tate is a functional neurosurgeon who conducts 2-3 awake mapping cases a week. Dr. Parrish’s work focuses on neuroimaging – data acquisition and data analysis for all types of imaging data including structural, diffusion, perfusion and functional imaging.
This position will work in a collaborative environment to assist with the coordination, processing and analysis of MR neuroimaging data, intraoperative data including DES, ECoG, and IR mapping. Prior experience with neuroimaging software suites such as FreeSurfer, SPM, FSL and AFNI is required. Proficiency in coding and statistical packages is preferred. Experience with graph theory analyses is also preferred.
