15 Postdoc Fellowships available at the intersection of Data Science and Neurology

NeuroInsight is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action for Individual (Postdoctoral) Fellowships. The programme aims to support a new kind of Research Fellow, developing advanced skills in data analytics, AI, machine and deep learning and applying them to the challenges of neurological conditions. We will facilitate high quality research, provide opportunities for fellows to interact with patient groups and datasets, and to develop unique capacity and flexibility for an independent career in their field of research, whether continuing to academia, industry or clinical settings.

This programme operates at the intersection between two existing large scale, distributed programmes of research in Ireland: FutureNeuro, the SFI Centre for Chronic and Rare Neurological Disease, and Insight, the SFI Centre for Data Analytics. Fellows may be hosted by any Irish institute affiliated with these Centres. Incoming or Global options may be proposed.

In our first call, NeuroInsight aims to fund at least 15 high-calibre Postdoctoral Fellowships of 24 months. Fellows will relocate to Ireland to join expert supervisors in one any institution in Ireland that is affiliated with one of our SFI Centres. Fellows will have access to the full range of FutureNeuro and Insight labs, infrastructure and neurological datasets.

NeuroInsight Fellowships are for experienced researchers from any country, seeking a prestigious, career-building position in Ireland. Fellowships must pursue one of four research challenge domains:

  • Ethnographics: How data from those with neurological disease are collected and shared for the development of precision medicine, including methods to capture such data
  • Advanced Analytics: Using patient data to predict important clinical events including response to therapies
  • Genomics: The analysis of ‘omic data from human and animal models to inform diagnosis and therapeutics
  • Patient Impact: Using insights from data to inform more effective and targeted healthcare provision
