We have vacancies for three excellent post-doctoral research associates and one PhD student in the Statistical Imaging Neurosciences group at the Donders Institute for Brain Cognition and Behaviour and the Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

These positions will be supervised by Prof. Christian Beckmann and Dr. Andre Marquand and will focus on the development of novel computational and machine learning methods for the analysis of neuroimaging data. The roles are part of different but related projects which have general aims of creating advanced practical tools for multivariate statistical analysis of neuroimaging data and for predicting clinical variables from these data. The group has a strong interest in pattern recognition methods and exploratory data analysis (e.g. Independent Component Analysis) with specific applications of ICA for the investigation of functional connectivity inferred from resting-state fMRI. We aim for an interdisciplinary research approach integrating cognitive neuroimaging, pharmacology, genetics, and applications in diverse clinical disciplines with well-established international collaborations.

Requirements
Post-doctoral positions: Completion of doctoral degree in a numerate discipline such as statistics, computer science, engineering, cognitive neuroscience / psychology or other relevant field of study.
Doctoral candidate: Completion of an undergraduate (and ideally also master's level) degree in one of these fields.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong academic track-record, including publications in international journals. These individual should be proficient in fMRI research and have experience with the usage of one or more of the common neuroimaging data analysis platforms (e.g. FSL, SPM, FreeSurfer or AFNI) plus programming skills using MATLAB, Python, R and/or C++.

Organization
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour (http://www.ru.nl/donders/) offers a unique, multidisciplinary working and learning environment with opportunities for developing expertise in a diversity of research areas and techniques. The centre is equipped with three MRI scanners (2 x 3T, 1.5T) and access to a high field (7T) MR system plus a 275-channel MEG system, an EEG-TMS laboratory, several (MR-compatible) EEG systems, and high-performance computational facilities.

Conditions of employment
Employment: 1,0 FTE. Your starting salary will be commensurate with experience. In addition to the monthly gross salary, you will receive two yearly 8% bonuses (holiday and end-of-year).
International applicants may qualify for significant income tax reduction under the Netherlands 30% Rule.
The post-dotcoral positions are for three years in the first instance (12 months probation period) with a possible extension. The PhD studentship is for four years.

Application
Please send your application, including a motivation letter, statement of research interest, CV and names with addresses of three persons who can provide references to Christian Beckmann at c <dot> beckmann <at> donders.ru.nl and Andre Marquand a <dot> marquand <at> donders.ru.nl

Closing date: Review of applications will continue until the positions are filled.
