Postdoctoral Image Analyst

Updated: 3 months ago
Location: Strand, ENGLAND

The post-holder will work closely with a team of researchers in the processing and analysis of several cross-sectional and longitudinal neuroimaging datasets obtained as part of studies on brain development and psychiatric disorders.

Data have been acquired using different imaging modalities, including volumetric MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and functional Magnetic Resonance. The post-holder will contribute to the study BRAINCHART (Normative brain charting for predicting and stratifying psychosis), funded by the Wellcome Trust, collaborating with PIs in The Netherlands (Prof Andre Marquand) and other centres.

The overall study aim is to develop normative 'growth charts' for the brain from approximately 40,000 people, to enable us to identify individuals at risk of, or with psychosis who follow an 'atypical' trajectory early, and to stratify individuals according to how likely they are to become unwell. The study will take the next step in developing normative modelling as a tool to bring precision medicine to psychiatry.

The successful candidate will work in the processing and analysis of brain imaging data, and in the integration of these data across imaging modalities, and with clinical and socio-environmental data, using innovative approaches. The post is based in London at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, Department of Psychological Medicine, and is funded for a fixed term period, subject to annual review.
