2017BAPFFBDEF149 - Post doctoral researcher in rodent neuroMRIPosted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2017-May-19
The University of Antwerp is seeking to fill the following full time vacancy (m/f) at the Department of Biomedical Sciences of the Faculty of Pharmacy-Veterinary and Biomedical sciences: Post doctoral position in rodent neuroMRI to study BOLD-based and perfusion-based functional connectivity
Bio-Imaging lab University of Antwerp Belgium
A post-doctoral position is available for a multidisciplinary project that aims to study changes in functional connectivity in an animal model for Huntington. The Bio-Imaging lab has already great expertise in acquiring and analyzing BOLD-based FC. In this project, the post-doctoral fellow will extend the methodology to perfusion (pCASL) based FC measurements on 7T and 9,4 T Bruker scanners. The project is multidisciplinary and masters a wide range of techniques including the development/implementation of the perfusion based resting state MRI protocols, acquiring data of dedicated animal models, and image analysis.
The core R&D activity of the Bio-Imaging lab (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/rg/bio-imaging-lab/) is experimental high resolution neuroMRI focusing on neurodegeneration, neuromodulation and neuroplasticity. The research is performed on rat and mouse models for different human neuropathologies and on songbirds as a model for neuroplasticity and learning. We have two 7Tesla 16 cm and one 9.4Tesla 20 cm horizontal bore in-vivo MRI scanners and a cryocoil from Bruker (Germany) and a desktop 4.7Tesla from MRSolutions (UK)).
Our group has access to micro PET/SPECT/CT and BLI and advanced image processing through other UA research teams with whom we are clustered into a large UA imaging consortium EGAMI (Expert Group Antwerp Molecular Imaging https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/rg/bio-imaging-lab/collaborations/egami-imaging-consortium/)
