The UCSD Department of Radiology offers challenging career opportunities cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art services for clinical and translational studies. The Center for Multimodal Imaging and Genetics (CMIG) is a multi-disciplinary group of scientists, programmers, and support staff that plays a leading role in several national and multinational initiatives involving collection and analysis of imaging, genetic, and behavioral data from healthy controls and patient populations. CMIG hosts the Data Analysis and Informatics, Resource Center (DAIRC) of the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study, an ongoing,NIH-funded study to follow ~12,000 children with longitudinal neuroanatomical, functional imaging and behavioral assessments across 21 sites within the US. The major goals of the study are to provide a publicly available data resource to examine the relationships between environmental influences -- including substance use -- and adolescent brain and cognitive development.
Under supervision, implement image processing methods for multimodality medical imaging and neuroimaging data, including structural, diffusion, and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. This will include the creation or modification of software tools related to transfer, parsing, manipulation, or conversion of imaging data in DICOM standard format, evaluation of compliance to study-specific image acquisition protocols, and packaging of imaging data in various formats including BIDS. This will also include the creation or modification of software workflows, also known as processing pipelines. Participate as a member of a multidisciplinary research team in designing, implementing, and documenting data processing tools and pipelines. Support users by effective training and documentation of provided tools.
