Research Studentship in "Multi-channel registration for inter-patient alignment of brain images"
Closing date - Noon, 14 April 2012
3.5-year CASE funded D.Phil studentship, available from 1.10.2012 (subject to eligibility
This is a CASE studentship with EPSRC and Siemens Molecular Imaging, Oxford. The objective of this
project is to investigate and develop new methodologies for multi-channel, inter-patient

novel registration tool will be primarily developed and used to improve understanding and diagnosis
of dementia (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease).
Prospective candidates will be judged according to how well they meet the following criteria:
Have obtained, or are about to complete, a first class honours degree in Engineering, Physics,
Mathematics or Computer Science; Experience in (medical) image analysis and medical imaging as part
of their course, or as demonstrated by a publication at an international conference or an
international journal; Good English written and spoken communication skills; Excellent record of
academic and/or professional achievement
To apply for this studentship, candidates should check their eligibility as laid out on
