The successful candidate will have or about to be awarded a PhD in a relevant area (e.g. Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Biostatistics, Neuroscience, Medicine), together with a strong academic track record. Programming skills are highly desirable and experience with machine learning, data science, medical image analysis, biostatistics, or clinical neuroscience/neurology are highly beneficial. Above all, they will demonstrate enthusiasm to contribute new knowledge, openness to learn new approaches and willingness to contribute to a multidisciplinary team across academia and industry.
