Postdoc in Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Neuronal Currents

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)

Frist 22. juni 2020

A range of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques are widely used for mapping of brain function, but they have a major limitation in common: Rather than mapping actual electrical brain activity, they record indirect measures such as blood oxygenation changes. Following our recent successes in mapping of injected currents with unprecedented sensitivity, we will develop a new MRI technique for mapping of tiny magnetic field changes caused by fluctuating neuronal currents. The method is expected to open novel avenues in basic and clinical neuroimaging, e.g. improved localization of malformed brain areas causing epileptic seizures.

We have ideas for how these goals can be achieved, but we need your help designing the measurements, conducting experiments and publishing the results. You will be the daily responsible for the project, and will design, plan and conduct experiments giving the best chance of success. These may include both MRI, EEG and brain stimulation methods.

You will work in close collaboration with experienced researches in the fields of MR physics, MR current density imaging, brain stimulation and neurophysiology of activation, particularly Assoc. Profs. Axel Thielscher and Lars G. Hanson.

Responsibilities and tasks
Our aim is mapping of natural neuronal currents in humans. Your tasks include analysis and experimentation with respect to sensitivity to neural architecture, stimulation paradigms, EEG correlates, MRI sequence choices and validation. Simultaneously, you will advance your scientific career by learning and developing new techniques and publishing the results.

Flexibility and self-motivation are desired skills. In addition, we expect you to be interested in collaboration and take personal responsibility for your work. We offer substantial academic sparring in an informal atmosphere.

Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent.

A strong background in technical aspects of MRI development and analysis is required. Prior experience with MR sequence development, and especially EEG, neuro-architecture and specifics of neural activation are advantageous. MR sequence development and testing will be conducted using the JEMRIS/Pulseq MRI development environments or similar, and vendor-specific scanner programming is therefore of limited importance. Prior experience with these tools is not essential.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.

The project including your 2-year employment is mainly funded by the Lundbeck Foundation. The project is conducted in collaboration with the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (www.drcmr.dk/) located at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Denmark, where the experiments will be conducted.

Further information
The employment and primary activity will be at the Center for Magnetic Resonance, Department of Health Technology at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, just North of Copenhagen that is characterized by a very international atmosphere and is globally recognized as a very attractive site for settling.
