Dr Elisha Josev is an early career postdoctoral researcher and Senior Research Officer at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. She holds a PhD and a Masters of Psychology (Clinical Neuropsychology) from the University of Melbourne. She also practices as a paediatric clinical neuropsychologist in neonatal medicine at the Mercy Hospital for Women, and is an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne.

Dr Josev has a special interest in the neuropsychological and neurological effects of disruption to normal brain development (particularly in children born preterm), and the impact of chronic health conditions on adolescent brain functioning and behaviour.

She currently coordinates a paediatric myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) research program at MCRI as principal investigator on a world-first longitudinal neuroimaging project in paediatric ME/CFS, and also leads the paediatric component of Australia’s first ME/CFS biobank. She is also chief investigator on an NHMRC-funded study investigating pathophysiological mechanisms underlying paediatric ME/CFS.
