Our team leads the Neuroimaging Core as well as Project 3 for the Center for the Study of Aphasia Recovery (C-STAR). This NIH supported project (P50 DC014664) aims to better understand the speech and language impairments that are common consequences for brain injury. We plan to develop, validate and deploy new methods for prognosis and treatment. We have an outstanding team at the University of South Carolina, the Medical University of South Carolina, Johns Hopkins University and the University of California in Irvine.

New Positions

Our Team is hiring two new members. The official advertisement is below:

The Department of Psychology at the University of South Carolina (, invites applications for two full-time, 12-month Post-Doctoral Research Fellows positions in neuroimaging research related to neuroimaging and aphasia with an anticipated start date of August 16, 2016. Beginning and end dates for the position are flexible, with the possibility of extending the contract for up to 60 months. The supervisors for these position is Dr. Chris Rorden (project leader) and Dr. Rutvik Desai (co-I).
These scientists will work in the Center for the Study of Aphasia Recovery (C-STAR, NIH P50 DC014664). One individual should have experience in MRI processing using AFNI, FSL or SPM and be able to develop skills with multimodal imaging (ASL, fMRI, DTI, T1, T2). One individual will assist Dr Rorden (lead, in project 3 'Combining behavior, neuroimaging and biomarkers to predict language deficits after stroke' and will have experience with machine learning, multivariate statistics and classification.
For this position, successful candidates must have a PhD by the time of appointment in Medical Science/Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, or Psychology, Computer Science or related fields.
Salary commensurate with experience. These positions provide an outstanding opportunity for young scientists to develop translational skills, using cutting edge techniques (including our Siemens Prisma) and working with leaders in speech pathology and neurology (Bonilha, Fridriksson, Hillis, Sen) and theoreticians (den Ouden, Hickok).
Complete applications will be reviewed beginning April 5th, 2016, until the position is filled. Electronic submission of materials is required. Send Vicki Lewter at a) a letter of application describing your research interests, b) curriculum vitae, c) contact information for three references to be obtained upon request, and d) two samples of written work.
