Vacancy: Research Assistant in Memory Clinic Image Computing

Apply Here (closing date: 23 May 2021)

I have a vacancy for a post-Masters / pre-PhD level person interested in medical image (MRI) data wrangling and analysis, including computational modelling of neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body Disease.

One important goal for the project is to use existing computational methods (from the POND group) to build a differential diagnosis tool for dementias, Specifically Alzheimer’s Disease vs Lewy body Dementia.

This is exciting for two reasons in particular: we are looking at real world data from individuals in the prodromal stage of dementia.

If you’re not quite ready for a PhD and are interested in medical image computing, this could be the role for you. The ideal candidate would have a background in computer science, physics, maths, medical image computing, or a related field.
