TRABIT is hiring 15 PhD students

TRABIT is an ambitious EU-funded project aiming to develop new computational methods to analyze the ``wild'' type of neuroimaging data arising in the standard clinical treatment of brain disorders. TRABIT is currently inviting applications for 15 early-stage researcher (ESR) positions in a dedicated PhD research program involving some of Europe's most renowned universities, research hospitals, and industrial R&D divisions. The selected ESRs will receive an interdisciplinary research training, with a special emphasis on overall career development and on the translation from academic research to industry and clinical practice. TRABIT has the explicit ambition to bring novel quantitative image computing methods into the clinic, enabling improved healthcare delivery to patients with brain disease.

We offer:

  • An exciting interdisciplinary research environment of eight top-level universities and research institutes, six hospitals, and five industrial partners.
  • International secondments to other partners in the TRABIT network; dedicated network-wide training events and conferences; anticipated participation in other international conferences and workshops.
  • Co-supervision of your research by experts from industry, academia and hospitals, as well as access to state-of-the-art computational facilities and large collections of clinical neuroimaging data to support your research.
  • Special emphasis on career development through transferable skills training including entrepreneurship, innovation, IPR, industry work, scientific writing, etc.
  • An employment contract or other direct contract with equivalent benefits, including social security coverage, with a competitive salary (cf. the specific ESR descriptions for details); an additional mobility allowance of 600 EUR/month; and a family allowance of 500 EUR/month if you have a family at the time of recruitment

"Family" means persons linked to the researcher by marriage (or a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognized by the legislation of the country where this relationship was formalized) or dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher.
