Research Fellow at Monash University

Monash University is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in medical imaging. Applications are invited up to April 08, 2019.

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You'll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you'll need to publish your work. We're a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what's expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences (MICCN: housed within the School of Psychological Sciences) is looking to appoint a Research Fellow (PET and PET/MR Neuroimaging Post-Doc) who will focus on investigating mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the human brain using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

This position will also include implementing and validating experimental scanning protocols, managing and undertaking statistical analysis of the imaging and behavioural data, performing appropriate theoretical and computational modelling, and providing reports of the measurements and results.

Data acquisition and analysis will focus on brain Positron Emission Tomography (PET) using novel investigational tracers in individuals with genetically-determined neurodegenerative diseases, including Huntington's disease and Friedreich ataxia. Secondary comparisons with MRI measures of neurodegeneration will be undertaken, exploiting multi-modal data acquired using the MR-PET scanner and associated technologies located at Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI).

To be successful in the role, you will have a doctoralqualificationinneuroscience or computational discipline with demonstrated expertise in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Familiarity and/or expertise with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) modalities, or other relevant disciplines, will be considered a strong asset.

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

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
