PhD position in data analysis for brain magnetic resonance imaging – BCAM and BCBL

PhD Student position in Data Analysis for Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging in a collaborative project between the Basque Center of Applied Mathematics (BCAM) and the Basque Center on Brain Cognition and Language (BCBL) in Spain.

Applications are invited for a 4-year full-time multidisciplinar PhD Studentship in a collaborative project between the BCAM and the BCBL.

The focus will be on refinement and development of multivariate pattern analyses techniques and machine learning classification approaches to study human brain function using fMRI data from different cognitive tasks involving multi-class semantic categorization and learning of statistical regularities and the associated timecourses. Applicants should have an honours and a Masters degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering or another relevant area, and have a strong interest in brain and cognitive sciences.

Strong computational skills (preferable R and Python) are fundamental. Experience with functional MRI is not a requirement but the candidate should demonstrate the willingness to learn it.

Applications must be submitted on-line at:
