Two post-doc positions are available at LREN, Department of Clinical Neurosciences – CHUV, Lausanne, Switzerland – www.unil.ch/lren. The positions will be suitable for highly talented and motivated candidates with interests in data science, computer science and human brain imaging.
The goal of our project is to build a simulation model of brain ageing. To this end, we have collected rich multi-modal data from ≈ 1600 participants from the general population aged 45 - 90 years, consisting of multi-parameter MRI maps additionally to multi-shell DWI and task-related fMRI. The researchers are expected to follow LRENs research programme, but will be encouraged to formulate own ideas and proposals for projects.
The post-doc full-time positions are initially for a period of 2 years renewable on annual basis with option for extension and require the following qualifications:
• Neuroscientist – should be a holder of a PhD awarded in the areas of imaging neuroscience, computer science, and statistics or similar. The candidate should be a power-user of Matlab, Python and have stable knowledge in statistics. Familiarity with common MRI image processing software packages (such as SPM, FSL, or AFNI) is a must. Job description: Development and application of multi-variate statistical analysis methods in the context of multi-contrast anatomical MRI data. Maintain and further develop workflow management and MRI processing pipelines for MPM and DWI data. The post holder will be responsible for software releases and ensure data quality control and validation of new applications.
• Data scientist/engineer - should be a holder of a PhD awarded in the areas of data science/informatics, mathematics, statistics, computer science, or similar with experience in software development. Job description: implementation and application of cutting-edge ML/SL techniques to imaging and non-imaging data. The post holder will be responsible for software releases and ensure data quality control and validation of new applications.
Please send your CV, a letter of motivation, and names of at least two referees to Bogdan Draganski - [log in to unmask] Review of applications will begin June 1st, 2020; applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
