Postdoc in Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Neuronal Currents

A spread of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) methods are broadly used for mapping of mind perform, however they’ve a serious limitation in widespread: Fairly than mapping precise electrical mind exercise, they document oblique measures akin to blood oxygenation modifications. Following our current successes in mapping of injected currents with unprecedented sensitivity, we’ll develop a brand new MRI method for mapping of tiny magnetic area modifications brought on by fluctuating neuronal currents. The strategy is anticipated to open novel avenues in primary and medical neuroimaging, e.g. improved localization of malformed mind areas inflicting epileptic seizures.

Now we have concepts for the way these objectives will be achieved, however we want your assist designing the measurements, conducting experiments and publishing the outcomes. You may be the every day liable for the challenge, and can design, plan and conduct experiments giving the very best probability of success. These could embrace each MRI, EEG and mind stimulation strategies.

You’ll work in shut collaboration with skilled researches within the fields of MR physics, MR present density imaging, mind stimulation and neurophysiology of activation, significantly Assoc. Profs. Axel Thielscher and Lars G. Hanson.

Duties and {qualifications}
Our purpose is mapping of pure neuronal currents in people. Your duties embrace evaluation and experimentation with respect to sensitivity to neural structure, stimulation paradigms, EEG correlates, MRI sequence decisions and validation. Concurrently, you’ll advance your scientific profession by studying and creating new methods and publishing the outcomes.

Flexibility and self-motivation are desired abilities. As well as, we count on you to be desirous to collaborate and take private duty to your work. We provide substantial educational sparring in an off-the-cuff ambiance.

A powerful background in technical facets of MRI growth and evaluation is required. Prior expertise with MR sequence growth, and particularly EEG, neuro-architecture and specifics of neural activation are advantageous. MR sequence growth and testing can be performed utilizing the JEMRIS/Pulseq MRI growth environments or related, and vendor-specific scanner programming is subsequently of restricted significance. Prior expertise with these instruments just isn’t important.

As a proper qualification, it’s essential to maintain a PhD diploma (or equal).
