PhD position available with Professor Joanna Wardlaw at the University of Edinburgh
PhD position available in 'Advanced signal processing and MRI to assess cerebrovascular health in small vessel disease and dementia' at the University of Edinburgh.
This project will focus on developing advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to measure CVR, brain pulsatility and other aspects of small vessel function, mapping these onto detailed structural brain images to study how changes in these functions lead to brain damage. The student will work on advanced and complex MRI and computational image analysis techniques as applied to human brain imaging in a multidisciplinary team including medical physicists, neurologists, neuroscientists, image analysts and statisticians.
- Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, a minimum of a 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject (for example physics, engineering, chemistry or computer science).
- Interested students should in the first instance contact the supervisor(s) to discuss the project (Professor Joanna Wardlaw, Professor Ian Marshall, Dr Michael Thrippleton, Dr Michael Stringer.
