The Centre for Research into Ageing and the Brain at the University of Edinburgh seeks an post-doctoral medical image analyst to conduct original research analysing brain imaging from UK Biobank as a key member of MRC DPUK2 Vascular Experimental Medicine studies in Edinburgh, Cambridge and Glasgow.

Disorders of the brain’s blood vessels are a major cause of dementia and can be detected on brain MRI. White matter hyperintensities, perivascular spaces, lacunes, microbleeds and altered subvisible markers on diffusion tensor imaging all are early vascular disease MRI biomarkers for high risk of deterioration in brain health and dementia risk. The research fellow will analyse brain MRI from UK Biobank subjects to assess perivascular spaces and other brain health markers, using longitudinal data where available, and assess rates of change and relationships with risk factors. They will evaluate the findings in other relevant cohorts. The work requires expertise in computational brain MRI analysis of vascular features and multivariate statistical methods. There will be scope to further refine computational methods to measure vascular markers on brain MRI.

The successful candidates will, by the time of appointment, hold a PhD in a relevant discipline, have demonstrable experience in MRI computational image analysis preferably in cerebrovascular disease or dementia, statistical and database management experience, and a track record of published work. Previous experience in studies linking MRI findings with cognitive, functional and neurodegenerative disease outcomes would be advantageous.
