Post-doctoral position in high-field NeuroImaging

A Post-doctoral position is available to work on high-field (7T) neuroimaging at the Adaptive Brain Lab, University of Cambridge, UK (http://www.abg.psychol.cam.ac.uk).

The position will focus on behavioral and brain imaging studies that combine ultra high-field (7T) imaging (fMRI, GABA MR Spectroscopy) to investigate the neural mechanisms that mediate learning and brain plasticity.

High-field imaging will be conducted at the new 7T scanner in Cambridge (Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre) in collaboration with Prof Rainer Goebel (Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre) and Dr Charlie Stagg (Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, Oxford Univ). Further interventional approaches (TMS, neuropharmacology) will be employed to test brain connectivity and circuits that support flexible behavior.

Research in the lab aims to understand how humans of all ages translate sensory experience into complex decisions and adaptive behaviors. We address this challenge using an interdisciplinary approach that combines behavioral paradigms, computational modeling and multimodal brain imaging (MRI, EEG, MEG, TMS). The successful applicant will combine machine learning approaches and state-of-the-art high field brain imaging. They will receive multi-disciplinary research training at the interface between neuroscience, computer science, and engineering.

Applicants should have or be close to obtaining a PhD, and have a strong academic track record, in a relevant area (e.g., Neuroscience, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics). Programming skills are essential and experience with computational modeling and/or brain imaging desirable.

For informal enquiries please contact Prof. Zoe Kourtzi (zk240@cam.ac.uk). Please include CV and a brief statement of research background and interests.
