RESEARCH ASSISTANT - TECHNICAL
The successful candidate will work with an interdisciplinary research team focused on the measurement of human brain network function with modern neuroimaging methods, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalography. The laboratory’s focus integrates these empirical data with computational models to capture the full dynamics of human mental function. The candidate will focus the computational developments for experimental data processing and visualization and assist in experimental design and data acquisition.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
Documenting, maintaining and modifying existing code, creating new code for various scientific pilot studies and experiments.
Contributing to computational algorithms for use with imaging technologies (MRI, EEG, MEG, PET, SPECT, etc.).
Assessment and refinement of computational approaches using simulated and empirical data.
Work with technicians and scientists in collaborating institutes to exchange analytic approaches and datasets
Gain high level of competency with The Virtual Brain software platform in order to use this tool for various large-scale brain modeling projects
Qualifications include but are not limited to:
- A degree in computer science, mathematics, engineering or related field
- Shell scripting in Unix
- Signal processing methods, statistical methods are advantageous
- Advanced knowledge in C/C++ programming language, Matlab or Python
- Strong verbal skills and effective writing skills
- Effective time management skills

The Rotman Research Institute (RRI) is a premier international centre for the study of human brain function. The primary research focus is on memory and the executive functions of the brain, both in normal aging and in the presence of diseases and conditions that affect the brain, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. This fellowship is supervised by Dr Randy McIntosh. Contact us for more information about this opportunity.
