A 1-year (renewable) Post-Doc call is available at the BCBlab/GIN/CNRS in Bordeaux to work directly with Michel Thiebaut de Schotten as part of his ERC 'DISCONNECTOME'
The focus of this position will involve the development, testing and validation of MRI techniques that allow complete mapping of brain functions and their circuits.
The successful candidate will be part of an international multidisciplinary team developing and applying MRI techniques to study brain structure and function supporting normal higher cognitive function as well as the study of cognitive dysfunction in various neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions.
The position will allow for training opportunities in brain anatomy, big data harvesting and translational clinical research.
The fellow is expected to be able to work independently as well as part of a multidisciplinary team with supervisory responsibilities of graduate student research. The fellow will support research MRI users, will have opportunities to develop new ideas and advance their own research interests in an international academic environment.
- Development, testing and validation of graph theory techniques that allow the mapping of the organisation of brain functions in humans
- Writing of papers
- Data Modelling
The minimum qualifications are a doctorate in neuropsychology or cognitive neuroscience. Good knowledge of neuroimaging, including various modalities (DTI, T1, Resting-state) is required. Given the research focus of BCBlab and GIN, candidates with experience in graph theory and in the analysis of structure-function relations will be favoured. Applicants must show advanced writing skills, demonstrated by at least 4 publications including at least one in first author. Imagination in identifying new brain functions will be an asset.
