Applications are invited for the following post:
Research Associate at the University of Ulster

A major aim of this one-year research project is to make use of a combination of computational neuroimaging, data analytics and cloud/high-performance computing to analyse heterogeneous data, extract patterns and predict dementia. The types of data include brain imaging, biological, medical and lifestyle datasets. This timely, exciting and high-impact project is available in Ulster University's Computer Science Research Institute and is tenable in the Faculty of Computing and Engineering at the Magee campus. The project is in collaboration with Queen's University Belfast, the Clinical Translational Research and Innovation Centre (C-TRIC), and two computing/tech companies.

The successful applicant will utilize knowledge in computational neuroscience/neuroimaging, data analytics, mathematical/statistical modelling and cloud/high-performance computing in the research. The postholder will join a growing multidisciplinary research team, embedded within a wider health analytics network, and will benefit from the expertise of Ulster's computational neuroscience/neuroimaging and intelligence and data analytics. Our Ulster's Intelligent Systems Research Centre has recently upgraded its computing facilities to enable state-of-the-art data analytics research. The postholder will be trained with a unique and highly sought set of skills that combine brain imaging analysis with data analytics. S/he will have the opportunity to interact with other biomedical/translational/clinical researchers in the team, and learn about advanced software development, knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship. In particular, the postholder will interact regularly with the Northern Ireland Integrated Health Analytics Centre.

All applicants should hold or about to obtain a Ph.D. degree in Computing, Engineering, Computational Neuroscience, Computational Sciences, Neuroscience, Statistics, Mathematics, Physics, or a related discipline. Applicants must be highly motivated and willing to pursue research and develop skills and knowledge across disciplines.

The application process for the post is opened with a closing date for applications on the 30th September 2015,
and interviews will be held shortly after. The successful applicant is expected to start sometime in October
2015. Further details can be found at:
