*Permanent position in high-resolution human functional MRI at NeuroSpin*

NeuroSpin, France’s research center for innovation in brain imaging 
technologies, is opening a*permanent position for a research scientist 
in high-resolution human functional MRI*. This is a pure research 
position, without any teaching requirement. We are looking for an 
experienced principal investigator. Both junior and senior candidates 
are welcome, and the salary will be modulated according to experience.

Candidates should have a dual-track record: (1) a proven capacity to 
develop methods that push the spatial resolution of functional MRIand 
relate it to its anatomical substrate. (2) a strong publication record 
in any domain of cognitive neuroscience, either fundamental or clinical.

Past experience could include one or more of the following:

  * fMRI sequence development, reconstruction and post-processing methods
  * Detailed fMRI mapping of individual subjects
  * High-resolution visualization of cortical maps or cortical columns
  * Determination of cortical codes (e.g. tuning curves, coding schemes…)
  * fMRI dissection of the functional role of cortical layers
  * Comparison of fMRI signals with intracranial and/or single-cell
  * Relation of fMRI signals to anatomical and diffusion signals.

Candidates are expected to develop their own research program using the 
7 T and 11.7 T human magnetsavailable at NeuroSpin, while collaborating 
with the existing in-house teams. They will benefit from a dynamic 
scientific environment including scientists and support groups already 
working in all aspects of functional, anatomical and diffusion MRI as 
well as spectroscopy, from coil design to MR sequence development and 

The 7 T magnet is a state-of-the-art Siemens magnet, upgraded in early 
2018 with the novel connectome whole-body gradient set running at 
100mT/m, and fully equipped with visual, auditory, and eye-tracking 
devices. The 11.7 T is a world-premiere that will be up to field in late 
2018, initially devoted to animal experiments, and seeking approval for 
human experiments around 2020-2021.

Please send your letter of intention (1-2 pages), CV, and letters of 
recommendation, before December 31^st 2017, to
