Experienced Researcher (f/m/d) in Population Neuroimaging
German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE)
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is a unique
non-university research center which is dedicated to the subject dementia
and all its areas, as well as other neurodegenerative diseases. The center
compasses the full spectrum of fundamental research through population
sciences to health care research. The DZNE stands for excellence in research
and science management, translation of scientific results into practice, interdisciplinarity
and internationalization. It is a research center within the Helmholtz
Organization of German research centers. With over 1,000 employees from
55 nations, spread over 10 sites, the DZNE is one of the national and international
leading research centers in its research field.
Within the area of Population Health Sciences at the DZNE in Bonn we are
looking for a
Experienced researcher (f/m/d) in Population Neuroimaging
We study determinants and biomarkers of normal and pathological mental and
physical health function over the adult life course, with a special emphasis on
neurodegenerative diseases and ageing. The research is led by Prof. Monique
M.B. Breteler and is primarily based on data from the Rhineland Study. This
prospective population-based cohort study will include more than 20,000
people aged 30 years and over, run for decades, and emphasizes brain-related
outcomes. Core data collection includes extensive structural and functional
brain imaging, cognitive and behavioral assessments, cardiovascular investigations,
sensory systems assessments, questions on medical history, medication
intake, life style, nutrition and mental health, collection of biomaterials, and
wide-ranging omics analyses.
Brain imaging is an essential part of our data collection and prominent in our
research. All eligible participants of the Rhineland Study undergo an advanced
1h MRI protocol at each examination. The core protocol acquires state-ofthe-
art anatomical, functional and structural connectivity data in the whole
brain with high isotropic resolution. A "free protocol" with varying sequences
addresses additional research questions in subgroups. We already have brain
imaging data from thousands of participants, data collection is ongoing. We
work with an interdisciplinary team of image analyzers, IT experts and other
data scientists to build the relevant image analysis pipelines and perform
further feature extraction and data analysis. To further strengthen our team, we
aim to appoint a highly qualified scientist with strong experience in population
You are expected to take a leading role in the further development of our
research efforts in this area. Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
supervision of data acquisition and processing; analysis of data and preparation
of manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals; supervision of
graduate students; maintaining contact with our internal and external academic
partners; preparation of grant applications, development of own research
focus. Additionally, we expect you to actively contribute to the general conduct
and further development of the Rhineland Study.
We are looking for a highly talented, motivated, enthusiastic and ambitious
researcher with good social skills. You have a PhD in medicine (radiology),
physics, epidemiology, applied statistics, cognitive neuroscience or other relevant
discipline. Experience with large scale brain imaging data and very good
epidemiological knowledge is a prerequisite, as is a demonstrated interest in
quantitative research, the possession of strong data analytical skills, leadership
capabilities and the ability for independent and critical thinking. A track
record of publishing high quality scientific papers is a sine qua non.
An interesting and challenging work in a highly interdisciplinary and international
Common language at work is English
We actively encourage and support our employees' personal development

Employment, payment and social benefits are determined by the Public
Sector Collective Agreement (TVöD-Bund).
The professional qualification of early career researchers is of great importance
for DZNE. Besides special offers for career development and support, the DZNE
also provides researchers career opportunities in form of junior research groups
or internal career paths to obtain scientific independence.
You will obtain special skills and knowledge for your scientific qualification
during your activities at DZNE. The DZNE is an equal opportunity employer.
It is committed to employing disabled individuals and especially encourages
them to apply.
