PostDoctoral Fellow in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Analysis

A post is available for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to participate in analysis of brain MRI scans of children, based at the Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland.

We are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic, post-doctoral research fellow to work with our group undertaking studies of 9-year-old children born at risk of low blood glucose concentrations. The objective of the CHYLD Study is to determine the relationship between blood glucose concentrations in babies, and their later neurocognitive function, academic achievement and brain structure.

This 0.5 FTE two year post will provide MRI and image analysis experience in the context of a busy multidisciplinary clinical studies group. The fellow will work closely with clinicians, vision scientists and statisticians in the Liggins Institute, Auckland and collaborate with researchers at the University of Toronto and University of Waterloo, Canada.

Applicants must have completed a PhD or equivalent in a relevant field eg psychology, neurology, biomedical engineering, medical physics or radiology. Experience in structural analysis of MRI data would be an advantage.

The two-year 0.5 FTE post is available from mid 2018. To discuss the post, contact Distinguished Prof Jane Harding ([email protected]) or Prof Ben Thompson ([email protected]).
