A postdoctoral fellow position is available. In general terms, the post-doctoral candidate is needed or helping with evaluation of brain MRI measure of cerebrovascular disease as well as with measurement of aortic stiffness among approximately 1,000 participants that will be having a carotid Doppler and transcranial Doppler as part of a research project aim at better understanding the vascular contribution to Alzheimer disease.
Specifically, these are the expected duties for applicant for this position:
- Evaluation of perivascular spaces in brain MRI.

-Obtaining measure of artic stiffness in participants undergoing carotid Doppler and transcranial Doppler.
-Facilitation, on as needed basis, the logistics of participants coming for Doppler and TCD.
