Professor John Troy 

Postdoctoral Position in Applied neurovascular imaging 

There is an opening for a full-time Postdoctoral Fellow in the research group of Dr. Molly Bright to develop advanced MRI techniques to assess the interaction of neural activity and vascular physiology. These techniques will be applied in several collaborative themes, studying novel therapeutics in rehabilitation, exploring brain-body relationships in aging, and characterizing motor impairment and plasticity in children and adults following stroke. There is opportunity and support for the Fellow to initiate and lead new directions in basic and clinical research. This position is for a minimum of 2 years with the possibility to extend.
