You will provide high quality administrative support for the Department of Biomedical Imaging Science, in particular supporting the research activity funded in Professor Plein’s British Heart Foundation (BHF) Chair and programme grant award.

Your responsibilities will include the coordination of research projects and managing research activity in the Department and its three main imaging facilities, the experimental Imaging Centre (ePIC), the Advanced Imaging Centre (AIC) and the Cardiac MRI facility.
