Research Assistant in Microstructural Imaging at Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre

Cardiff University

In June 2016, Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) moved to new purpose-built premises housing up to 200 researchers, 4 human MRI systems (2 x Siemens Prisma 3T, 1 x Siemens Connectom [microstructure MRI with 300mT/m gradients], 1 x Siemens 7T), MEG, EEG, TMS, tDCS, a clinical research facility, sleep labs and and cognitive testing labs. Complementing CUBRIC’s human imaging capability, the Experimental MRI Centre (EMRIC) hosts a 9.4T horizontal bore Bruker Biospin system.

This is a rare opportunity to join a successful imaging neuroimaging centre in a phase of strong growth and to work in a vibrant and positive research environment.

The post-holder will be supported by a team of physicists and engineers at CUBRIC (including a Siemens staff scientist, and physicists dedicated to the support of the Connectom and 7T scanners).

It is strongly recommended that interested candidates arrange for an informal chat with Derek Jones prior to submitting an application (

This position would suit a self-motivated individual with a proactive and flexible approach to work, and the ability to use initiative and creativity.

The post is full-time and fixed-term for 6 months.
