This PhD student will study the smallest vessels in the living human brain. He/she will assess the utility of two recently developed fMRI techniques, CBV-mapping and line-scanning, in two different patient groups in which microvessel dysfunction plays a dominant role in the pathophysiology. The first group are sickle cell disease patients, a relatively homogeneous group (in collaboration with AUMC Radiology). The second group will consist of elderly persons (79-89 years) across the severity spectrum of cerebral small vessel disease, identified by white matter hyperintensities and lacunar infarcts (in collaboration with AUMC Neurology). 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.
