The Bio-Imaging Lab at the University of Antwerp (Department of Biomedical Sciences of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences) is seeking to fill the following full time vacancy:

Post doctoral (m/f) position in neuroMRI to study BOLD-based spatiotemporal patterns of neural activity

for a period of one year, with the possibility of renewal for 1 year after positive evaluation.
Starting date: ASAP.

The position is available for a multidisciplinary project that aims to study changes in functional connectivity (FC) in animal models for Alzheimer. The Bio-Imaging lab has already great expertise in acquiring and analyzing BOLD-based FC. In this project, the post-doctoral fellow will create and implement algorithms to extract quasi-periodic patterns (QPPs), known as large-scale recurring spatiotemporal patterns of neural activity, which have been suggested to be likely contributors to 'altered' network connectivity. The project is multidisciplinary (acquiring MRI data of dedicated animal models by PhD students), where the focus of the Post Doc job lies in the advanced image analysis.

Interested candidates should
- hold a doctoral degree in (bio)-informatics, biomedical imaging, biomedical engineering, statistics, mathematics, physics, computational neuroscience or a closely related field.
- have comprehensive knowledge and experience in one or more topics within the signal and image sciences: data analysis, signal processing techniques, statistical decision theory, and algorithm development.
- be familiar with machine learning and pattern discovery techniques is a plus.
- have experience with coding algorithms in C, C++, Matlab, Python, or similar language used in the signal and image sciences.
- have preferably experience with in-vivo Neuro MRI analysis, neurosciences
