PhD student (f/m/d) for the "Multimodal Neuroimaging" group
German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) / Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen e.V. (DZNE)
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is a unique nonuniversity
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.
The DZNE in Magdeburg is looking for a
PhD student (f/m/d)
to join the "Multimodal Neuroimaging" group led by Dr. Anne Maass in Magdeburg.
The ability to create new memories is supported by brain regions within the
medial temporal lobe, which are vulnerable to aging and neurodegenerative
diseases but also highly plastic. Our group at the DZNE Magdeburg uses
multimodal imaging techniques including PET and MRI to understand how
age-related pathology leads to memory dysfunction and compromises brain
plasticity in the living human brain. The use of high-resolution functional and
structural MRI at 7T thereby allows us to study memory networks at the level
of small subregions. Our group also aims to elucidate the factors that underlie
or impact brain plasticity in response to exercise or cognitive training.
Our group has only recently been created and we are looking for a highly
motivated PhD student to join our new team. You should be passionate about
understanding the mechanisms that underlie memory formation, cognitive
aging and neurodegeneration. You should also be interested in applying or
establishing novel methods and in developing your own research ideas. Your
work will include the design, data collection, data analysis and interpretation
of neuroimaging and cognitive studies in cognitively normal people or clinical
populations. You will utilize multimodal neuroimaging approaches, such as
functional and structural MRI or molecular imaging (PET). A crucial part of
your work will be coding / programming and statistical analyses. You will also
present your research to the scientific community at meetings, international
conferences and by means of publications.
Master degree in neuroscience, psychology, computational science, biostatistics,
medicine or related fields
Basic experience in programming and statistics (e. g. Matlab, R, Python,
Basic experience in human brain imaging (MRI, fMRI) and image analyses
will be of advantage
Good communication and team working skills
Fluent in spoken and written English
The candidate should have an open mind to collaborate with other groups in and
outside Magdeburg. For further information please contact Dr. Anne Maass.
Employment, payment and social benefits are consistent with those at other
research institutes. The job location is Magdeburg, Germany. The position is
available as of now and limited to 2 years (with an option for extension).
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.
