Brain Imaging Machine Learning Postdoctoral Researcher

Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927

The Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences are looking for a Brain Imaging Machine Learning Postdoctoral Researcher to work on an exciting opportunity funded by a Wellcome Trust Collaborative Award between Oxford (Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging), London (King's College), and Nijmegen (Donders Institute).

The overall aim of the award is to extend the reach of imaging neuroscience to take full advantage of the richness of the new big data imaging resources, such as: major advances in the quality of data; complementarity of multi-modal imaging; large subject numbers; and linked information about health outcomes, genetics, and risk factors.

The successful applicant will be integral to this project and will work on advancing neuroimaging in one of 2 interlinked areas:

• High precision imaging of brain activity dynamics and network modelling;

• Biologically interpretable multimodal brain imaging for populations.

We are looking for Postdoctoral Researcher with experience in the following areas: image analysis methods for structural, functional, and diffusion MRI; big data machine learning for neuroimaging; data harmonisation and deep generative models.

Applicants will be expected to Manage own academic research and administrative activities ,hold a BSc (or equivalent) degree in relevant area (i.e. Physics, Engineering, Computer Sciences, Neurosciences), and a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant computational domain.The qualification can be held (appointed to Grade 7) or submitted for examination/ nearing completion (appointed to Grade 6) by the time of starting the post. As well as knowledge of statistics and/or Bayesian learning, and necessary mathematical and computational skills to put these into practice. Skills in computer programming (e.g. Matlab, Python, or C++) are essential.

The post is full-time for a fixed term of 3 years in the first instance.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 2nd February 2022 will be considered.
