Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen e.V. (DZNE)Rostock
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) investigates the
causes of diseases of the nervous system and develops strategies for prevention,
treatment and care. It is an institution within the Helmholtz Association of German
Research Centres with nine sites across Germany (Berlin, Bonn, Dresden, Göttingen,
Magdeburg, Munich, Rostock/Greifswald, Tübingen and Witten). The DZNE
cooperates closely with universities, their clinics and other research facilities.
The DZNE in Rostock/Greifswald offers a position as
PhD student (f/m)
The clinical dementia research group of the DZNE-Rostock is looking for a
highly motivated PhD student to work on an innovative third-party funded
project aiming to elucidate molecular properties underlying the distinct spatial
distribution profiles of Alzheimer's disease pathology in the aging brain. This
interdisciplinary research project involves working with multimodal neuroimaging
data (MRI and PET) as well as with high-throughput microarray-based
measurements of regional cerebral gene expression. The PhD student will
primarily analyze existing multimodal neuroimaging and microarray-based
gene expression data using neuroimaging-specific and bioinformatic software
tools implemented within Matlab and R computing environments.
The project collaborates with partners from the Institute of Biostatistics of
the University Rostock Medical Center and the Gordon Center for Medical
Imaging, Harvard Medical School. The position holder will be given the opportunity
to present the research findings on international conferences and will
be assisted in preparing manuscripts for scientific publication. The position
is initially funded for 2 years with the possibility of extension for another year
depending on performance and funding.
Degree (MSc or equivalent) in Neuroscience, Bioinformatics, Biotechnology,
Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields.
Interest in pursuing a scientific career in clinical neuroscience
Enthusiastic individual with strong problem solving skills
Familiarity with computing environments such as Matlab and R
Fluent in English and good oral and written communication skills
Previous experience with analysis of neuroimaging and/or high-throughput
gene expression data
