Job posting: Research/Data engineer at the University of Oslo, Norway (LCBC)

The Center for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition (LCBC) is an active, international multi-disciplinary research center, initiated by Professors Kristine B. Walhovd and Anders M Fjell, with a staff of 25 full time positions, including researchers, several post docs and PhD candidates, engineers and full-time RAs, extensive supporting personnel and several affiliated international researchers. We have staff from seven different countries, and English is the language of the lab. The center has an interdisciplinary approach, with researchers from different fields such as psychology, genetics, neuroscience, physics, informatics, statistics and engineering. LCBC was in 2015, as one of five, appointed status as a “world leading” research group at the University of Oslo. We encourage the interested applicant to visit for more details about LCBC and our research.

LCBC constitutes an extremely active and stimulating learning environment for the skilled and interested candidate.

The position is suited for a person with strong programming competence and interest in signal and image processing. Imaging of the human brain by MRI and PET is central to LCBC research, and the candidate will contribute by:

  • Automated and manual quality control of mainly MRI data
  • Develop new and maintain existing data processing pipelines
  • Data preprocessing and higher-level analyses
  • Contribute to implementation and testing of new processing procedures
  • Develop and maintain neuroimaging databases

We rely heavily on FreeSurfer and FSL for brain imaging analyses, and the center cooperates with the developers of these software packages. Our analysis pipelines use a combination of Python, R, and run on Linux/HPC.

The candidate is expected to work closely with other researchers at LCBC as well as with our international collaborators.
