The Opportunity

As a dynamic postdoctoral researcher you will join our team which focuses on disease progression in neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntington's disease and Friedreich ataxia.

As a Research Fellow, you will be responsible for using existing databases (especially on Friedreich ataxia) to conduct high level scientific research focused on developing novel methodologies for analysing brain network connectivity with diffusion and functional MRI and integrating these techniques with other (e.g. genetic, behavioural, clinical) data to address both basic and applied neuroscientific questions.

You will utilise your expertise in neuroimaging analysis, strong quantitative and programming skills. You will be responsible for leading and supporting other team members in terms of image analysis, writing papers for publication, submitting your own fellowship/other grant applications, and assisting in the supervision of students and other researchers. You will work under the supervision of the team Professor, as well as working collaboratively and under direction from other clinicians and researchers.

The role has been tailored to encourage and develop research leadership and career advancement for the successful candidate, with strong and experienced mentoring provided.

If you have a PhD in Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, Computational Neuroscience or a related field, have high level computational image analysis expertise and evidence of strong research ability, then we encourage you to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible-working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
