An exciting new postdoc position has opened up on our BRIGHT project (2 yr fixed term). The post is focused on the development, collection and analysis of behavioural, health and demographic data about the infant and their family, as well as integration with analysis of neuroimaging data. It will be primarily based in the UK with opportunities to go to the Gambia.  If anyone has any queries please feel free to contact Sarah Lloyd-Fox directly (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Globalfnirs is a multidisciplinary project dedicated to advancing global health initiatives through the use of a low cost, portable and non-invasive neuroimaging technology, functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).  Our goal is to provide tools which supplement current methods for assessing cognitive function of the developing brain in resource poor settings. We believe that establishing earlier and more objective biomarkers of typical and atypical cognitive development will be of value in assessing interventional outcomes and risk prevention strategies.
