Have you completed a PhD in the physical sciences? Do you want to play a key part in an international and interdisciplinary team, working to unlock the full potential of TUS for brain stimulation in neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry? Then you are the MR physicist the Donders Institute is looking for!
We are looking for an MR physicist to work on combining transcranial ultrasound (TUS) with MRI. The position is part of a prestigious European Innovation Council Pathfinder Project named CITRUS (Closed-loop Individualised image-guided Transcranial Ultrasonic Stimulation). You will be a key part of an international and interdisciplinary team working to unlock the full potential of TUS for brain stimulation in neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry.
Fixed-term contract: It concerns a temporary employment for 2 years.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is a world-class interfaculty research centre that houses more than 700 researchers devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of the human mind. The Donders Institute has been assessed by an international evaluation committee as excellent and recognised as a 'very stimulating environment for top researchers, as well as for young talent'. The Donders Institute fosters a collaborative, multidisciplinary, supportive research environment with a diverse international staff. English is the lingua franca at the Institute. Postdoctoral researchers will formulate a development plan with their supervisors.
The mission of the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (DCCN) is to conduct cutting-edge fundamental research in cognitive neuroscience. Much of the rapid progress in this field is being driven by the development of complex neuroimaging techniques for measuring activity in the human brain - an area in which the Centre plays a leading role. Our internationally renowned centre currently hosts more than 100 PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers from more than 25 countries, offering a stimulating and multidisciplinary research environment. The Centre is equipped with four MRI scanners (7T, 3x 3T), a 275-channel MEG system, a brain stimulation laboratory including state-of-the-art TUS equipment, several (MR-compatible) EEG systems, and high-performance computational facilities. Radboud University has an interfaculty initiative in focused ultrasound in place for which the above-mentioned CITRUS project will provide support and collaboration opportunities.
The CITRUS project is a collaboration of 8 European institutions. At the Donders Institute, the groups of Lennart Verhagen and David Norris will contribute to the project. You will work under the supervision of David Norris.
