Postdoctoral Neuroscience Research Fellow
Department of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience Research Center
Medical College of Wisconsin
The Department of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience Research Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) are recruiting for a Postdoctoral Neuroscience Research Fellow to join our diverse group of basic and clinical scientists studying a broad array of neurologic disorders. Under the direction of Michael McCrea, PhD, ABPP, the Fellow will play a major role in the execution of a large, prospective study on the acute effects and recovery after mild traumatic brain injury. In addition, there will be ample opportunities to collaborate with other basic and applied scientists in the Neuroscience Research Center at MCW, directed by Cecilia Hillard, PhD. The Fellow will also gain access to opportunities for professional development through coordination of educational and dissemination activities. The Fellowship period is for 2-3 years. Candidates should have (1) a doctoral degree in neuroscience, neuropsychology, or a related field, (2) demonstrated competency in research design and methods through presentations and publications, and (3) a strong skill set in computerized data base management, information technology applications, and statistical analysis. Based on the focus of our major projects, experience in advanced neuroimaging methods (e.g., fMRI, DTI, etc.) is also preferred. MCW shares a campus with our main teaching hospitals, Froedtert Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, in Milwaukee, WI. The Department of Neurosurgery also has close collaborative relationships with the nearby Milwaukee VA Medical Center.
Applicants should submit a letter of interest, CV, 2 sample publications or writing samples, and 3 letters of recommendation to Michael McCrea, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director of Brain Injury Research, Department of Neurosurgery, Medical College of Wisconsin, 9200 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53226 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
