Postdoctoral Research Associate in Network Neuroscience. University of
Cambridge. Limit of tenure: 24 months.
Please send your CV and/or direct all informal enquiries to Mika
Rubinov, mr572 at cam.ac.uk
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 (MRI) brain networks in health, and in
psychiatric/neurological disorders such as autism and Huntington’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
(Prof John Suckling, Dr Mike Spencer and Dr Tiago Simas) and
internationally (Prof Stephen Rao, Cleveland Clinic). 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 have a strong background in network science or a
related discipline, good programming skills (preferably in MATLAB, C
or Python), and an interest in neuroscience and the brain. Experience
with mixture modelling, stochastic blockmodelling or machine learning
is welcome but not essential. Good communication and organisational
skills are desirable.
