Research Fellow at Monash University

Monash University, Australia is offering postdoc position in signal processing. Applications are welcome before July 12, 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.

We seek a talented, dynamic Level A post-doctoral research fellow to join the Experimental Neuropsychology Research Unit (ENRU) within The Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health. The post-doc is expected to contribute towards the research effort of the University and importantly to build the research capacity within the ENRU through the pursuit of excellent research.

Our research team within ENRU focuses on rare neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntington's disease (HD) and Friedreich ataxia (FA). We have a focus on mapping brain and cognitive dysfunction more accurately, in an effort to improve early detection and better understand factors that influence disease progression.

This position will use existing databases to conduct high-level scientific modelling and analyses, integrating these techniques with other clinical data (e.g., genetic, clinical, cognitive) to address both basic and applied neuroscientific questions. You will also lead the development of new cutting-edge neurocognitive experiments focused specifically on novel non-drug based interventions, such as neurofeedback/brain stimulation, together with fMRI testing of HD patients at the Monash Biomedical Imaging facility.

Ideally we are seeking someone with a successful completion of a PhD in Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, Computational Neuroscience or a related field. You will alsohave expertise in biomedical image and signal processing, applied computational modelling, and strong quantitative and programming skills, experience in programming in Python/MATLAB, as well as being very familiar with open source software for neuroimaging analyses (e.g. FSL, FreeSurfer, SPM). You will be able to create new processing and analytics pipelines using these tools.

The successful appointee must be able to take initiatives to lead and develop new experimental protocols for research within the ENRU, including but not limited to, the development of novel non-drug based interventions (e.g., neurofeedback training/brain stimulation).

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.

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”.
