Postdoctoral position, NeuroMRI - BOLD-based spatiotemporal patterns of neural activity - 2019BAPFFBDEF072Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Feb-20
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 Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences
Postdoctoral position in neuroMRI to study BOLD-based spatiotemporal patterns of neural activity
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 (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 student), where the focus of the Post Doc job lies in the advanced 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.
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/)
