This is an exciting opportunity to join the research team in the Precision Imaging Beacon of Excellence and Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, who are driving the discovery and translation of new imaging tools that will transform non-invasive diagnosis, improve the outcomes for patients, and better evaluate the success of medical interventions.

Our Precision Imaging Fellowship scheme is aimed at early career researchers from any discipline who have recently completed their doctoral studies and show promise for an outstanding career in medical imaging research. Fellows are expected to undertake a substantive piece of independent work that contributes to the aims of the Beacon Research Programme, and to complete a newly designed portfolio training programme to support the transition to an externally-funded fellowship. Supervision and individual mentorship will be offered by a range of world-leading experts in imaging, clinical research, mathematical modelling and computer science.

Strategic areas

To be eligible, candidates should have a research background, skill-set and strong interest supporting translational and clinical imaging research in one or more of the following areas:

  • Mathematical modelling of physiological dynamics utilising data assimilation
  • Under sampling in MRI

Each fellowship offers:

  • Two years of independent funding (which may be extended by one year subject to performance), to conduct research and develop an externally-funded fellowship application, to be held at the University of Nottingham.
  • Salary at a level on the R&T4 University salary scale dependent on experience.
  • Extensive career development support, including individual mentoring and participation in the FAST training scheme.
  • Pump-priming research support of £10,000.
  • The opportunity to spend up to 3 months abroad to develop international collaborations.

Eligibility: Candidates must have been awarded their PhD. This scheme is aimed at early career researchers, and candidates do not normally have more than 4 year’s postdoctoral experience. However, there are no eligibility rules based on years of post-doctoral experience as this doesn’t allow for variations of career paths across disciplines. Candidates will be assessed on their quality, potential and track record, relative to their career stage.
