The field of Imaging Genetics involves linking observations on the human genome to observations in imaging data. Especially novel genome-wide sequencing approaches combined with large-scale population imaging studies open up unprecedented possibilities for discovering the cause of a disease, and relating it to its anatomical and functional consequences. A major challenge is how to exploit the synergism of imaging, genetic and other relevant biomedical data. In this project the clinical focus will be on the development, evaluation and implementation of diffusion MRI data in the context of large population studies to support imaging genetics studies. The Post doctoral researcher will work in a multidisciplinary team. The PhD positions are part of projects under the STW Perspective Programme "Population Imaging Genetics" which funds additional PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in Epidemiology, Genetics, and Bio Informatics.
Candidates must have a PhD degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. Experience with machine learning techniques, biomedical image analysis and/or genetics/bioinformatics is an advantage. You should be familiar with programming. Strong theoretical skills and affinity with experimental work are required.
Being able to present a certificate of good conduct is a condition for the appointment.
ConditionsAs a Postdoctoral researcher you will get a temporary position until December 2018 (full-time). The salary will be conform the cao UMC, in scale 10. The terms of employment are in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement for University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
Additional informationFor more information about this position, please contact Prof.Dr W.J. Niessen, e-mail: email@example.com.
Applications should include:
- a curriculum vitae, a motivation of your application and a description of research interests;
- a list of followed courses and grades;
- a list of publications and copies of up to three publications (in English), e.g. your MSc thesis.
