Analysis of MR Spectroscopic Data for Investigation of Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Methodology

We are sorry, this position has been filled

As an undergraduate research associate, the student will become involved in the various components of research investigation with regards to proton MR spectroscopy. They will develop research questions aimed at advancing the implementation of MR spectroscopy in a neurological context. This includes both in vivo applications, such as those aimed toward specific neurodegenerative or psychiatric disorders, and/or methods based with a focus on contributing to further development of tools employed in MR spectroscopy. As such, the student will also be responsible for analysis of in vivo and simulated spectroscopic data and will thus require use of statistical methods and programming packages including R and MATLAB. The student will then communicate the methodology employed and findings. This involves both oral presentation and a strong emphasis on writing, including developing skills in the investigation and consolidation of available literature, describing the steps taken and conclusions reached, and creating figures illustrating the methods and results in a cohesive fashion. They will therefore be heavily involved in the writing process of a research article.
