University of Nottingham

The Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre (SPMIC) at the University of Nottingham invites applications from outstanding candidates for PhD scholarships in translational magnetic resonance imaging. This prestigious scholarship is for three-years’ duration starting from October 2018 and provide a student stipend at the recommended RCUK level (£14,553 per annum in 2018/19) as well as covering University of Nottingham fees.

The SPMIC at the University of Nottingham is a leading international centre for the development and application of magnetic resonance techniques, spanning the School of Medicine and the School of Physics and Astronomy. The SPMIC is involved in numerous national and international collaborations and operates a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities, including a 7T scanner, three 3T scanners, one of which is a wide bore system, two 1.5 T scanners, a 275 channel magnetoencephalography system, multiple MR-compatible EEG systems, 129Xe and 83Kr clinical gas polarizer facilities, a clinical dynamic nuclear polarization facility and an 0.5T upright scanner for weight-bearing studies and lung imaging.

The successful candidate will be able to choose from one of the following two projects: 

  • The DOME study: Development Of MR Elastography of the bowel

Lead Supervisor: Dr Gordon Moran (Gordon.Moran@nottingham.ac.uk), Clinical Associate Professor and Honorary Consultant Gastroenterologist, NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre

  • Biomarkers of Post-Operative Delirium

Lead Supervisor: Prof Iain Moppett (Iain.Moppett@nottingham.ac.uk), Associate Professor and Honorary Consultant Anaesthetist, Division of Clinical Neuroscience.

Further details of the projects can be obtained from Linda Pycroft (linda.pycroft@nottingham.ac.uk)

To be eligible for these scholarships, students must have obtained or expect to obtain the equivalent of a 2:1 or 1st class degree in a relevant life-science, imaging science or biomedical subject.

Application: To apply, please submit an up-to-date CV, along with a cover letter clearly stating your fee status (international or EU) and describing why you are interested in applying for a Haydn Green Foundation PhD Scholarship in Translational Biomedical Imaging, to Linda Pycroft (linda.pycroft@nottingham.ac.uk) by  27th February 2018.
