Postdoctoral Image Analyst
We are looking for a candidate with a strong background in image analysis in psychiatric disorders to join the Department of Psychological Medicine at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London. The postholder will work in the processing and analysis of large imaging datasets acquired in the context of studies on the potential utility of structural MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging in prediction of clinical outcome, and in the integration of these data across imaging modalities, and with clinical and socio-environmental data, using innovative approaches. 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.
This opportunity would suit candidates with either a background in mathematics or computer science or in neurosciences but with a strong record in computing.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 23 months.
The selection process will include a panel interview.
