An overview of all the current student projects.

We are currently looking for several motivated students with a physics, biomedical technology, neuroscience or comparable background for MSc projects or internships. Projects will be centred on (functional) MRI method development and implementation, for instance
  • implementation of fast scanning sequences for fMRI
  • the use of local RF coils for high-resolution fMRI
  • evaluation and validation of techniques for quantitative brain mapping
  • optimisation of sequence parameters for visualisation of subcortical structures
  • design of RF pulses for use in spectroscopy
  • evaluation and validation of dynamic brain spectroscopy protocols
  • implementation of multi-voxel/multi-editing techniques for brain GABA measurements
  • improvement of motion-correction for anatomical scans based on fat images
  • using the new multi-transmit system to improve image homogeneity in anatomical and functional scans
Minimum project duration 4 months fulltime, starting times are flexible. Note that the Spinoza Centre staff has no projects available in the areas of clinical and cognitive neuroscience, for opportunities in these fields you might try to contact a relevant affiliated researcher.
