    The Bouchard lab at UC Berkeley/LBNL/UCSF and the Ferguson lab at UCSF are looking for a post-doctoral scholar in biomedical data science. This position has the opportunity to analyze diverse data sets from clinical neuroscience (e.g., MRI, clinical data). The broad goal is to extract biomedical insights from complex datasets utilizing state-of-the-art algorithms towards prediction of diverse outcomes. Examples include prediction of traumatic brain injury outcomes as well as educational outcomes of young children in financially disadvantaged countries. The post-doctoral scholar would be co-mentored by Adam Ferguson and Kris Bouchard.

    The position is located at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), and the Lawrence-Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). This collaboration leverages UCSF’s world-renowned clinical knowledge and data, UCB's expertise in theoretical neuroscience, statistical learning and data analysis, and LBNL's unique supercomputing resources. Successful applicants will have access to the full range of facilities and expertise uniquely allowed by this collaboration.

    The position has significant flexibility and the lab is committed to the professional development of the members, providing valuable preparation for people who are interested in academic, industrial or entrepreneurial careers. The position has no mandatory teaching or administrative duties, but the successful candidate will take an active role in mentoring students and further developing the research program. Excellent (written and oral) communication skills in English are required. The start date is flexible but ideally would be in June 2023. Compensation will be commensurate with relevant experience. UCB has competitive benefits and is an equal opportunity employer. UCB is located in the Bay Area, which is one of the fastest-growing neurobiology-neurotechnology centers in the United States. The Bay Area offers a wide range of opportunities for recreation, culture, and easy access to domestic and international transportation.

    Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in neuroscience or a computational oriented field (e.g., physics, computer science, electrical engineering, data science, etc.,) and/or a track record of applying advanced statistical analysis to complex data sets. Applicants must be able to work in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment and exhibit good communication skills. Experience with scientific programming languages (e.g. Python, Matlab) is also required.

    Responsibilities:

    • Ability to perform behavioral tests for the evaluation of rat performance related to animal models used in pre-clinical research.
    • Responsible for operation, maintenance, calibration, and data collection related to the employment of behavioral testing equipment that is required for addressing questions related to a range of research projects, including studies in the neurosciences, physiology, immunology and infectious diseases, genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology, endocrinology, pharmacology, psychology and psychiatry, surgery, and preventive and rehabilitation.
    • Ability to oversee efficient use and scheduling of the Core and to work with the Core’s oversight faculty in designing behavioral testing facilities and protocols that suit the experimental needs of faculty.
    • Responsible for the development of standard operating procedures for behavioral testing and in some cases custom protocols, as appropriate.
    • Facilitate and guide scientists and students in the appropriate use of behavioral testing equipment, including procedures conducive to the acquisition of valid testing results and data.
    • Perform duties in accordance with USU Laboratory Animal Medicine policies and procedures, including humane animal use, the USUHS hazardous materials/waste program, and employee training/certification.
    • Responsible for planning and oversight for operational maintenance of all apparatuses to ensure that equipment is in good working order and is repaired as needed and that supplies/equipment are ordered as necessary.
    • Performs other duties as assigned.

    A postdoctoral position is available in the Lafrenaye lab to work with a translational pig model of traumatic brain injury. Investigations will focus on social and sensory changes following diffuse brain injury and how these changes are associated with microglial-axonal interaction alterations. This postdoc will work with a collaborative research group (both in the lab, at VCU, and at external institutions) to help guide these studies, perform animal surgeries, histological and molecular processing/assessment, and single-cell RNA sequencing for experiments of traumatic brain injury pathology in a higher order translational model. The ideal candidate will have experience with animal surgery, microglia assessments (molecular and/or histological), RNA sequencing/bioinformatics, and/or assessments of diffuse brain-injury-induced pathologies. The duration of the postdoc is dependent upon funding.
