PhD-Position in neuroimaging of pediatric mild traumatic brain injury
A PhD position is available to work on pediatric mild traumatic brain injury at cBRAIN (PI: Inga Koerte), Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, Germany.
We are looking for a PhD student to join our multidisciplinary research projects on pediatric mild traumatic brain injury. Our projects are funded through ERA-NET neuron and the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grant). We are conducting a longitudinal cohort study on children and adolescents with mild traumatic brain injury (age 3-18 years) and assess brain structure and function using MR imaging (T1-, T2-weighted, ASL, SWI, dMRI and MR spectroscopy), neuropsychological testing, and blood biomarkers. The successful candidate will be involved in participant recruitment, testing coordination and data acquisition, as well as analyzing cognitive, behavioral and neuroimaging data. Our research is at the interface of neuroimaging, pediatric neurology, child psychiatry, and computational neuroscience.
