Title Doctoral scholarship holder in vivo microstructure imaging with MRI
Closing date May 29, 2024
Description The Vision Lab of the Department of Physics in the Faculty of Sciences and the Bio-Imaging Lab of the Department of Biomedical Sciences (University of Antwerp, Belgium) are looking for a full-time (100%) doctoral scholarship holder in the field of in vivo microstructure imaging with magnetic resonance imaging. This position is part of the ERC Consolidator project “A data-driven approach to microstructure imaging” (ADAMI), funded by the European Union. ADAMI is a highly interdisciplinary project that combines insights from physics/engineering (imaging and image processing of MRI and light-sheet microscopy), biological and medical sciences (tissue microstructure, immunostaining, and neuroscience), and computer science (data analysis, machine learning, and artificial intelligence) to achieve a breakthrough in microstructure imaging with MRI.
You will focus on the acquisition, processing, curation, and modeling of quantitative MRI data of healthy mice and mice models for neurodegeneration.
You will present your findings at international conferences, publish scientific articles related to the research project, and participate in outreach events.
As a PhD student, you will work actively on the preparation and defense of a PhD thesis on the topic of microstructure imaging with MRI.
