Post-doctoral Position in Pre-clinical Neuroimaging

A post-doctoral position in pre-clinical neuroimaging is currently available at the Center for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine (CRMBM, Director Monique Bernard). The CRMBM is located on the Campus of the Medical School in Marseille (France), adjacent to the University Hospital of La Timone, the largest medical facility in Southern Europe. The position, starting as soon as possible, is funded for 3 years by the National Agency for Research (ANR). We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral scientist with significant experience in pre-clinical DTI and functional MRI. The successful candidate will join the team headed by Dr Angele Viola and will take part in a collaborative project on mouse in brain connectome led by Dr Christophe Bernard (Aix-Marseille University) an expert in connectome-based modelling (“The Virtual Brain” TVBM project).

Research project:
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.
Required qualifications:
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
advantage.
Contact info and applications:
Applicants should send their CV and cover letter to Dr Angele Viola. The cover letter should include a statement of
career goals and research interests, and contact information of 3 references.

Post-doctoral position

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).
