On behalf of Prof. Martin Dichgans:

The Imaging in Stroke and Dementia programme at the Department of Neurology,
Klinikum Großhadern, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich invites
applications for a full-time


PhD position / Post-doctoral Position in Magnetic Resonance Imaging


The focus of our research programme is on translational approaches to
explore the neural correlates of cognitive and behavioural dysfunctions in
vascular cognitive impairment. An ongoing longitudinal study involving more
than 250 patients with a genetic variant of stroke and VCI grants access to
a unique resource of multimodal MR imaging data (FA-and MD maps from DTI,
3DT1, FLAIR etc. available) and comprehensive neuropsychological test
results (see and publication record). We are
increasingly interested in voxel-based-morphometry (VBM) and more advanced
techniques to explore structure-function relationships.

There is direct access to several MR scanners operating at 1.5 to 3.0 Tesla.
Research activities are embedded in a center of highly productive MR imaging
research groups at Campus Großhadern.

Applicants should have a background in MRI analysis techniques (FSL, SPM,
Matlab etc.), programming and statistics. Interest in clinical neuroscience
and cognitive function would be appreciated. Applicants will have the
opportunity to pursue their own projects. The position is funded for 3 years
with an option to renew.

Salary will be based on qualifications with provision for bonuses. The
position is available Fall 2008.
