Research Associate- Cambridge Systems and Computational Neuroscience Group

last modified Jun 11, 2021 11:41 AM

A two-year post-doctoral position funded by the mental health charity MQ is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr Petra Vertes in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge (https://www.psychiatry.cam.ac.uk/groups/systems-and-computational-neuroscience-group/).

We are seeking applicants with a strong background in network neuroscience, neuroimaging, computer science, physics, mathematics or related fields who are interested in working at the interface between these areas.

A key aim of the laboratory is to uncover the biological basis of complex psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression. More broadly, we are interested in understanding structure-function relationships in the human brain, from the microscopic scale of neurons to the large-scale connectivity of brain regions, in both health and disease. We also seek to find mechanistic links connecting our understanding across scales, from genes to cells, circuits, tissues, to the whole brain and all the way to behaviour.

Closing date: 4 July 2021
