2 Post-doctoral positions at the University of Chieti - Institute of
Advanced Biomedical Technologies (ITAB) to work on MEGMRI, a FP7
sponsored project, starting immediately.
MEGMRI goal is to produce and validate a hybrid instrument able to
perform simultaneous MEG and MRI for obtaining undistorted structural
brain images and time-resolved functional maps that are spatially
precisely aligned with each other. The project has three main tasks:
i) build optimized magnetic femtotesla sensors for MEG and MRI; ii)
the production of an MEG-MRI hybrid prototype; iii) pre-clinical
validation of MEG-MRI.
MEGMRI is a multi-center project involving the following centers:
Helsinki University of Technology (Finland, coordinator), Aivon Oy
(Finland), CEDRAT (France), Chalmers Tekniska Hoegskola Aktiebolag
(Sweden), University of Chieti (Italy), Commissariat à l’energie
atomique (France), Elekta AB (Sweden), Associazione Fatebenefratelli
per la Ricerca (Italy), Hospital District of Helsinki and Uusimaa
(Finland), Imaging Technology Abruzzo (Italy), PTB (Germany),
University of Parma (Italy), Valtion teknillinen tutkimuskeskus
The two positions are for:
1) One position for a post-doc working on MEGMRI instrumentation
development. The post-doc is expected to work on a prototype using
superconducting devices for the detection of the MEG and MRI signals.
Candidates should have a PhD in Physics or Engineering. Candidates
should be already familiar either with MEG or MRI hardware. Skills in
signal processing as well as computer programming (C++, Matlab) is
2) One position for a post-doc working on MEGMRI software
development. The post-doc is expected to work on software for MEG-
MRI data integration to produce a toolbox to be included in an MEG
analysis software. Candidates should have a PhD in Physics,
Engineering, or Computer Science. Candidates should be already
familiar either with MEG or MRI methods.
Applications should include CV, a research statement, and 2 letters
The positions will be assigned on a 2+2 years schedule.
Chieti is a university town, located in central Italy, about 15
minutes from the Adriatic coast, 30 minutes from the Parco Nazionale
degli Abruzzi, the largest natural reserve in Italy, great skying,
hiking, and mountain or seaside activities, only 2 hours from Rome.
