The University of Antwerp is seeking to fill a full-time vacancy (f/m) as
Research coordinator for the OEC µNEURO Consortium
Neuropathological research is an interdisciplinary field, in which imaging and image-guided interventions have become indispensable. However, the rapid proliferation of ever-more inquisitive technologies and the different scales at which they operate have created a bottleneck at the level of integration. To meet a growing demand for holistic interpretation of multi-scale (molecule, cell, organ(oid), organism) and multi-layered (imaging, omics, chemo-physical) information on (dys)function of the central and peripheral nervous system, we have conceived µNEURO, a consortium comprising seven established teams with complementary expertise in neurology, biomedical and microscopic imaging, functional genomics and advanced data analysis. The goal of µNEURO is to expedite neuropathological research and identify pathogenic mechanisms in neurodevelopmental and -degenerative disorders on a cell-to-organism wide scale. Processing large spatiotemporally resolved image data sets and cross-correlating multimodal images with targeted perturbations takes center stage. Furthermore, inclusion of (pre)clinical teams will accelerate translation to a clinical setting and allow scrutinizing clinical cases with animal and cellular models. As knowledge-hub for neuro-oriented image-omics, µNEURO will foster advances for the University and community.
The OEC µNEURO strives to unite neuropathologists, neuroscientists, neuroimagers and method developers at the University of Antwerp to enable more comprehensive, top-level neuroscience research. To do so, µNEURO sets forth the following objectives:
To channel the implementation of this initiative, µNEURO is seeking for a skilled and motivated manager with an interdisciplinary mindset.
Your main task is to detect common ground or collaboration opportunities within the research consortium, to consolidate bridges between the different member groups and to build new bridges with other research groups from within the University and beyond.
Concrete tasks include:
