Post-doctoral position in Lausanne, Switzerland (published 8/2013)

Post-doctoral position in Lausanne, Switzerland

LREN neuroimaging lab - Department of Clinical Neurosciences
and
Department of Psychiatry - Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The cluster of excellence NCCR SYNAPSY funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation aims to discover the synaptic mechanisms from the molecular to network and integrative aspects underlying mental and cognitive diseases, such as depression, addiction, anxiety disorders or development disorders.
We are recruiting a talented postdoctoral researcher with a background in neuroimaging. The ideal candidate is ambitious and highly motivated for pursuing a career in science, holds a PhD in neuroimaging, computational neuroscience, biomedical engineering, cognitive neuroscience, or equivalent, has a strong background and interest in neuroscience, MRI analysis and statistics, and an excellent publication record. Candidates with a strong interest in and experience with methods for integrating multimodal imaging measures, including quantitative structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and functional MRI, are in particular encouraged to apply.
This posts are based in the neuroimaging laboratory LREN (www.unil.ch/lren) in Lausanne providing state-of-the-art facilities with a fully research-dedicated 3 Tesla MRI Siemens Prisma machine at the edge of MR technology, well-established infrastructure for neurophysiological testing (electro-encephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation), computer pool for hands-on student teaching and 200m2 of laboratory space. We have access to research dedicated 7T human MRI scanner.
This projects offer a stimulating, young and international environment making use of expertise and infrastructure of LREN (Prof. B. Draganski) and the Psychiatry Department - Lausanne University Hospital – CHUV (Prof. Ph. Conus, Prof. M. Preisig and Dr P. Marquet).
Please address questions or send Curriculum Vita, letter of application with research interests, and three references to Bogdan Draganski (bogdan.draganski@chuv.ch). Applications will be considered until positions are filled. Starting date is negotiable, though it can begin as early as October 2013.
 

Postdoctoral positions Neuroimaging and genetics (published 8/2013)

The European 16p11.2 consortium is a large translational project covering clinical, genomics and neuroimaging aspects aiming at the characterization of the 16p11.2 rearrangements.

Doctoral/Postdoctoral positions in human genetics / Clinical neuroscience (published 6/2013)

The group of Prof Sébastien Jacquemont is working on a large translational project covering clinical, genomics and neuroimaging aspects aiming at the characterization of the 16p11.2 rearrangements. This research program is done in tight collaboration with the LREN (Prof. B. Draganski) and the CIG (Prof A. Reymond). We are recruiting talented individuals with different levels of research experience and interests:
Clinical neuroscience, genetics and /or neuroimaging: This position requires a strong interest in clinical as well as statistical and translational work. The successful candidate will perform clinical phenotyping on a restricted set of standardized clinical measures. Clinical, Computational brain anatomy and genetic data will be analyzed in one integrated dataset. Candidates should be trained in neuroscience, medicine or clinical psychology.
This project offers a stimulating, young and international environment and is performed in state of the art facilities.

Candidates should contact:

Post-Doctoral position (published 5/2013)

Applications are invited for a funded Post-Doctoral position in the newly established Brain and Language Lab at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Geneva, in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. Projects will include the development of new data-driven computational morphometry methods for analysis of structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, and application of these to large datasets in the context of normal variability, disease, and expertise. The work will be supervised by Narly Golestani and Dimitri Van De Ville.

Candidates should have a degree in Biomedical Engineering, Computational Neuroscience, or a related field with a strong mathematical and computational background. Ideally they should have experience in brain image analysis, pattern recognition, machine learning, statistics as well as excellent programming skills.

We offer a competitive starting salary of 68, 964 CHF/year, or more depending on experience.

The position is available immediately, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Informal inquiries can be addressed to Narly Golestani (Narly.Golestani@unige.ch). Applications including a CV, a statement of research interests, and the names and full contact details of three referees should be sent to: Narly.Golestani@unige.ch.

Postdoctoral position

We are seeking highly motivated candidates with background in stem cell biology and adult neurogenesis and strong skills in cell culture (stem cells, primary neurons and astrocytes). Preference will be given to candidates who also have experience with in vivo work.

Submission:
Please submit a CV, cover letter, and names of two references to Nicolas Toni (nicolas.toni@unil.ch).
