We are looking for a researcher with a background in psychology, psychiatry, biomedical engineering, physics, or a related discipline to join the Department of Psychosis Studies at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London, as Postdoctoral Research Associate.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop and use machine learning strategies to train and validate predictive models of psychosis and affective disorders using neuroimaging (e.g., structural, functional MRI, spectroscopy, PET) and digital phenotyping (e.g., ecological momentary assessments, passive sensing) datasets.
This post will be offered on an a fixed-term contract for 3 years
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent
- To develop and use machine learning strategies to train and validate diagnostic and prognostic models of psychosis and affective disorders using different neuroimaging (e.g., structural, functional MRI, spectroscopy, PET) and digital phenotyping (e.g., ecological momentary assessments, passive sensing) datasets.
- To explore the neuroimaging and digital phenotyping correlates of psychopathological and neurocognitive disease dimensions in psychotic and affective disorders.
- To help develop, set up and implement stratified clinical trials that test the utility of diagnostic, prognostic and predictive neuroimaging and digital phenotyping models compared to treatment-as-usual approaches.
- To prepare scientific reports for publication in peer-reviewed journals
- To support effective collaboration between different research teams at the IoPPN, and between the Chair’s IoPPN team and team members at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich & Max-Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich.
