Description of the thesis topic

This PhD aims to perform longitudinal anatomical MRI and diffusion MRI follow-up of the juvenile brain. The PhD student will be involved in the design of the protocols and in the acquisition of the MRI data, the development and the realization of the post-processing of the data, as well as in the writing of scientific articles.
Methodological developments and data acquisition will be performed on the Lyon medical imaging platform (CERMEP) using a state-of-the-art 3T PRISMA MRI scanner equipped with the Tracoline system for real-time detection and correction of head movements. An IT infrastructure dedicated to the reconstruction and post-processing of massive medical imaging data will be used in this project.

The ideal candidate will possess:
- Knowledge of medical brain imaging or closely related fields.
- Skills in MRI and/or MRI data processing will be highly appreciated.
- Programming skills (Matlab, Python ....).
- Disposition to teamwork and strong motivation.
- Fluency in written English.

Work Context

The PhD candidate will join the brain MRI methodology group led by Dr. Bassem HIBA. Candidates wishing to develop their experience in MRI sequences and MRI data processing are encouraged to apply.
This project is funded by a grant from the French National Research Agency (ANR). The research project of this thesis will be carried out in collaboration with Siemens Healthineers and with the team of Dr. Pier Francesco Ferrari (Laboratory of Social Neuroscience and Comparative Development)
The project is carried out at the CNRS Institute of Cognitive Sciences Marc Jeannerod (ISC-MJ) in Lyon, a dynamic research center hosting teams working in different fields of neuroscience. The laboratory encourages interaction and collaboration between teams, with weekly seminars, several social activities and recurrent workshops. The scientific reputation and the level of its research work make the ISC-MJ a center of excellence for research and student training.
