Analysis Software Developer

University of Oxford - Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences

John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a new member of the Analysis research group that forms part of the FMRIB Centre. The FMRIB Centre Analysis Group conducts research in methods and modelling of brain imaging data, including functional MRI, diffusion MRI, structural MRI, EEG, and more recently MEG data. The members of the Analysis group have developed the widely used FMRIB Software Library (FSL) package, which enables the methods created within FMRIB to have a worldwide impact on the neuroimaging community. Further information about the Analysis research group can be found at the following web address:

You will work closely with the FSL development team, implementing new functionality in FSL, enhancing build/test systems and maintaining the existing codebase. This will also involve interacting with FSL users, both within FMRIB and from the wider neuroimaging community, to resolve issues arising from analysis and software use.

You must have a relevant degree (or equivalent) in a quantitative discipline – most likely one of Mathematical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Statistics or Image Processing with strong experience of programming in C/C++. A background in collaborative software development and familiarity with version control systems (e.g., RCS, CVS, git) would be advantageous.

The post is full-time and fixed-term for two years in the first instance.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on Monday 12 February 2018 will be considered.

Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
