 Date de prise de poste : 1 janvier 2022


imaging-genetics data integration machine learning data science


NeuroSpin is an outstanding research center on the Human brain. Part of the CEA (Atomic Energy Commission) and Paris-Saclay University, the NeuroSpin teams are leaders in very high field MRI and carry out fundamental and clinical neurosciences studies. The BrainOmics team ( works in imaging-genetics, at the crossroad where neuroinformatics, bioinformatics and machine learning meet and in collaboration with Gustave Roussy, ICM-La Pitié-Salpétrière and CentraleSupelec.

Machine learning in imaging-genetics on EU-AIMS

The post-doc researcher will design new machine learning models incorporating multi-modal MRI and multi-omic data for prediction and stratification purposes, especially in ill-posed problems (very large p, small n). Then, he/she will perform the imaging-genetics analyses of the EU-AIMS cohort (, dedicated to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Post-doc Activities

  • Genotype microarray, brain anatomical and functional MRI data integration.
  • Develop innovative and integrative machine learning prediction and stratification models.
  • Applications in clinical neurosciences, ASD.

Searched profile
