Fully Funded MPhil - Brain Image Processing for Identifying Small Cortical Lesions


   Centre for Advanced Imaging

  Prof David Reutens, ,  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

We are seeking a Master of Philosophy candidate to work on a brain image processing project, which aims to develop an algorithm to help radiologists identify small cortical lesions on high-resolution Magnetic Resonance images acquired from epilepsy patients. The project will employ mathematical models to transform 3-D brain images to visualise and enhance abnormalities in the cortex. The project will be supervised by Prof David Reutens, A/Prof Viktor Vegh, and Dr. Jiaxin Du, and will be based in the Centre for Advanced Imaging at the University of Queensland. The successful candidate will be provided a two-year scholarship with the option to upgrade to PhD after the first year. The candidate should have a strong mathematical background with good knowledge of differential equations, linear algebra, mathematical transformations etc.  and computer programming proficiency in at least one of the languages, MATLAB, C/C++, or Python. Knowledge of Magnetic Resonance Imaging is also desirable. The successful candidate will join a strong multidisciplinary group of neuroscientists, physicists, mathematicians, and engineers.


Funding Notes

This is a fully funded 2 year scholarship that covers tuition fees and an annual stipend of 34,938 AUD per annum, tax free (2022 rate) with the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging Technology. Both Australian and International students are eligible to apply.
