The cerebellum is an intricately folded brain region positioned behind the brainstem. Although traditionally somewhat overlooked in neuroimaging, its role in many important brain functions has recently led to increased interest. The thin cortex and high degree of folding mean that only very high resolution, high quality imaging suffices for cerebellar cortical segmentation or laminae visualisation. The PhD student will work on MR methods to visualise the thin cerebellar cortex visualising cerebellar structure in great detail. Data analysis and clinical neuroscientific projects observing cerebellar cortical changes in patients will form a substantial part of the project. We are currently hiring multiple PhD students for related positions.
- Ideal candidates will hold an MSc or equivalent degree in Physics, biomedical imaging or a related field.
- Skills in mathematics, scientific computing and programming (Python and/or Matlab) are essential.
- Knowledge of NMR/MRI physics is highly desirable.
- Some knowledge of Dutch will be useful for interaction with patients.
This position is ideal for students with a technical background seeking opportunities to contribute to neuroscience in human subjects. We strive for a diverse workforce and welcome letters from candidates who might widen the diversity of our team.
You will be appointed by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). The appointment is in total for 4 year. Initially, the candidate will be appointed for 12 months followed by an evaluation after which the contracted is extended. Starting dates are flexible.
Gross monthly salaries are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO NU), increasing from € 2325 per month initially, to € 2970 in the fourth year) excluding 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% year-end bonus. We offer an extensive package of fringe benefits.
