Postdoctoral Position in Complex Brain Networks, University of Cambridge.

posted on 13 June 2013

Please send your CV and/or direct all informal enquiries to Mika Rubinov, mr572@cam.ac.uk

 

The Brain Mapping Unit at the University of Cambridge is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Network Neuroscience. Network Neuroscience is an emerging field that uses network science to study brain function. The post holder will analyse functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain networks in health, and in psychiatric/neurological disorders such as autism and Huntington’s disease. There will be opportunities to work on exciting and original research ideas, and to collaborate with world-leading neuroscientists.

 

The post holder will be supervised by Dr Mikail Rubinov and Prof Ed Bullmore, and will engage with other neuroscientists in Cambridge (Prof John Suckling, Dr Mike Spencer and Dr Tiago Simas) and internationally (Prof Stephen Rao, Cleveland Clinic). The post is funded by NARSAD, Isaac Newton Trust and NIH grants and will be based at the Department of Psychiatry, within the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, a leading interdisciplinary and translational neuroscience research centre in Cambridge.

 

The post holder will have a strong background in network science or a related discipline, good programming skills (preferably in MATLAB, C or Python), and an interest in neuroscience and the brain. Experience with mixture modelling, stochastic blockmodelling or machine learning is welcome but not essential. Good communication and organisational skills are desirable.
