last modified Jun 24, 2014 05:44 PM

The Brain Mapping Unit at the University of Cambridge is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Network Neuroscience. Network Neuroscience is an emerging field that uses network science to study brain function. The post holder will analyse functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain networks in health, and in psychiatric/neurological disorders such as autism and Alzheimer's disease. There will be opportunities to work on exciting and original research ideas, and to collaborate with world-leading neuroscientists.

The post holder will be supervised by Dr Mikail Rubinov and Prof Ed Bullmore, and will engage with other neuroscientists in Cambridge and internationally. The post is funded by NARSAD, Isaac Newton Trust and NIH grants and will be based at the Department of Psychiatry, within the Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience Institute, a leading interdisciplinary and translational neuroscience research centre in Cambridge.

The post holder will be a quantitative or data scientist with a strong background in network science or related discipline, good programming skills in MATLAB or Python, and an interest in neuroscience and study of the brain. Good communication and organisational skills are desirable.

Further information and application details are available online, . Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed to Mika Rubinov, .
