The Department of Radiology, Neuroimaging Research Group (NrRG) and Division of Neuroradiology is located at Texas Children's Hospital, in the Texas Medical Center. Our research mission is to improve the ability to diagnose pediatric neurologic diseases and to advance our understanding of how diseases affect the brain including but not limited to malformative, disruptive and destructive pathologies. We also hope to use neuroimaging to track objective measurable indicators (quantitative metrics) that predict neurodevelopment, cognition and behavior in children. The ideal candidate for the Research Associate position will have attained their degree in Medicine or Neurosciences and posses a minimum of 3 years of relevant experience typically as a Research Assistant or Post Doctoral student with functional competencies in research methodologies, new technological development and delivery, and demonstrate the ability to publish with the aim to convey research findings in a constructive and practical manner.The Research Associate will assist physicians in reviewing data from various types of brain scans, including anatomical and functional data extracted from advanced CT and MRI studies to diagnose, guide and monitor treatment options of diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous system in children.
