    A Postdoc or Junior Scientist position is available to join the Complex Networks and Brain Dynamics group for the project: “Predicting functional outcome in schizophrenia from multimodal neuroimaging and clinical data“ funded by the Czech Health Research Council.

    The project involves the development of tools to predict the functional outcome of schizophrenia from multimodal neuroimaging, clinical and cognitive measurements taken early after disease onset. To overcome limitations due to high dimensionality of data, we combine robust machine-learning tools, data- driven feature selection and theory-based brain network priors. The project is carried out in collaboration with the National Institute of Mental Health, using its unique large rich imaging, cognitive and biochemical data of early stage schizophrenia patients.
