Universities Jobs - Recruitment - IIT Indore Recruitment - Walk In for Research Assistant Post | 13034

PostedOn : 12 May,2017 | Employment Type : Permanent | Organization : Education | Expiry : 2018-05-12


Applications are invited from highly motivated and eligible candidates for one Research Assistant (RA) position in a SERB funded research project entitled, “Classification and prediction of Alzheimer’s disease using multimodal imaging data” at IIT Indore.

Objective of the project:

The project focusing on early and accurate diagnosis of Alzheimer disease (AD). The current criteria for the inclusion of patients in clinical trials may thus not be sufficient for the discovery of disease-modifying treatments. Recently, neuroimaging has emerged a powerful tool to identify patients with AD. Multiple modalities allow measuring various types of alterations: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tracks atrophy caused by neurodegeneration, positron emission tomography (PET) allows measuring the presence of amyloid plaques and hypometabolism.

However, powerful analysis tools are needed to fully exploit this multimodal data. In this context, machine learning approaches are particularly promising in order to design systems that can accurately classify patients with AD and predict their evolution. Machine learning approaches have been successfully applied to the individual classification of different neurological and psychiatric conditions such as Alzheimer disease, frontotemporal dementia, autism and Parkinsonian syndromes.

It involves a strong background of optimization, machine learning, signal processing, and good knowledge of programming languages/software like MATLAB, C, Python etc.

Eligibility: Candidates should have master degree in Mathematics/Computer Science/Electrical Engineering or equivalent.

Time and date of walk-in written test/interview: 09:00 hrs (sharp) on May 15, 2017 (Monday).
