The purpose of the research project funded by ANR is to demonstrate the causal
links between structural and functional connectome alterations by using DTI and
rs-fMRI in mouse models of connectome alteration or stimulation. The structural
and functional connectome metrics generated for each individual will be used to
perform computational modeling of brain connectome using TVBM, in order to
generate predictions on the functional consequences of these alterations and to
examine them in vivo.
The ideal applicant should hold a Ph.D in a field related to MRI (Physics,
Biophysics, Biomedical Engineering, or Biology), have a strong background in
advanced MRI methods and brain anatomy, and experience in animal studies. A
significant hands-on experience with pre-clinical DTI and fMRI (acquisition and
post-processing) is required. An experience of preclinical rs-fMRI would be an

The Center for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine is seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in brain diffusion MRI for a 24-month period (contract: 12 months + renewal of 12 months). The successful applicant will on work in the field of brain diffusion MRI – tractography (connectome) at 7T and 3T in patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy in relation to individual virtual patient modeling. More specifically, this work will be part of an ancillary study within the framework of the national project EPINOV (Improving EPilepsy surgery management and progNOsis using Virtual brain technology) (http://www.epinov.com).
