Research Associate in Cardiovascular MR Physics

University College London - UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science - Children's Cardiovascular Disease

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) plays a vital part in the diagnosis and management of disease. This project specifically concentrates on developing novel cardiovascular MRI techniques in children. At UCL/Great Ormond Street Hospital we are at the forefront of developing new rapid cardiovascular MRI technologies for use in children. In this proposal, we plan to develop accelerated imaging techniques that leverage methods such as non-Cartesian imaging, compressed sensing, GPU computing, and machine learning. Such techniques will allow faster, easier imaging of children with serious heart conditions. We are seeking an individual with experience in MRI physics, computer science with a focus on imaging, or applied mathematics.

The appointment is funded to 30 June 2019 in the first instance.

The postholder will have a PhD in a relevant subject area (or be in the process of writing up), be able to demonstrate a high level of interest in the academic aspects of MR Physics, or computer science with an imaging focus. The post holder must have an understanding of basic MR physics and preferably the ability to pulse programme in the MR environment.
