Tue Apr 30 16:17:36 CEST 2019

Applications are invited for a fully-funded 4-years Ph.D. scholarship at
the NeuroInformatics Laboratory (NILab), Italy. NILab is a joint
collaboration between Fondazione Bruno Kessler (
https://www.fbk.eu/en/about-fbk/) and the Center of Mind and Brain Sciences
(https://www.cimec.unitn.it/en/14/the-center) within the University of
Trento, Italy.

Title: Machine learning for studying structural and functional connectivity
of the brain

Topics: machine learning, brain connectivity, diffusion MRI,
Magnetoencephalography (MEG), longitudinal studies and human cognition

Description: Neuroimaging methods, like sMRI, dMRI, fMRI and MEG/EEG can be
used to investigate the anatomical and functional connectivity of the
brain. This project will enable the candidate to pursue research on machine
learning methods for such neuroimaging data for brain connectivity, with
applications to longitudinal studies and to human cognition. The ideal
candidate should have a mixed background both in cognitive neuroscience and
numerate disciplines, like computer science, engineering, physics or
mathematics. This project is in collaboration with the Division of
Neurosurgery, S. Chiara Hospital, Trento and with the MEG Lab of
CIMeC/LNiF, University of Trento.

Please contact in advance: Emanuele Olivetti, olivetti at fbk.eu

Deadline: May 21, 2019
