The Department of Psychology at Columbia University is seeking an experienced educator with strong expertise in human neuroimaging to help design and lead the lab section of a new graduate-level course on human brain imaging with a focus on functional magnetic resonance imaging. The course will be led by Professors Lila Davachi and Nikolaus Kriegeskorte and will run from January 1, 2020 through May 31, 2020 and include a 2.5-hour weekly lab session. The purpose of the labs is to complement the weekly lectures with more hands-on interactive instruction on the analysis of human brain imaging data. The Associate will help to organize the labs and plan the content with the course organizers, and help to lead each lab. Some of the labs will include interactive talks by guest speakers and/or course organizers, and each lab should include an interactive component, where students perform analyses on human imaging data in class. Topics to cover in the labs include, but are not limited to: linear systems and convolution, Fourier transforms, Python and Matlab for neuroimaging, univariate brain mapping in AFNI/FSL/SPM, functional and effective connectivity analysis, and multivariate pattern information analysis. To get started in planning these labs, we seek an excellent educator with expertise in these areas to start in this position as soon as possible, ideally by November 15th.
