We are seeking to appoint a Research Assistant/Associate to develop image segmentation and atlas construction algorithms for the Developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP). This project will develop and apply novel, cutting-edge magnetic resonance (MR) methods to record structural and functional cerebral connectivity during early life, creating the first mapping of the developing human macro-connectome. We will provide the data we gather and tools for connectomic analysis, together with associated genetic, neurodevelopmental and clinical information within a user-friendly informatics platform for access by the wider research community, and carry out exemplar, ground-breaking hypothesis-driven studies into normal and abnormal brain development.
The Developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP) is an ambitious collaborative program between King’s College London, Imperial College London and Oxford University funded by the European Research Council (ERC) via a Synergy Grant. Within this project we are looking for a researcher who will be responsible for developing medical image analysis techniques that are optimized for MR images acquired from neonatal and fetal subjects. The role will involve development and implementation of image segmentation algorithms for fetal and neonatal MR images as well as algorithms for motion correction of fetal and neonatal diffusion and functional MRI.
