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 Clinical Fellowships are aimed at early career medically-qualified clinical researchers at pre- or postdoctoral level planning a career in advancing medical imaging for precision diagnostics, prognosis or imaging-guided clinical trials. The main aim of these fellowships is to provide promising candidates academic training and support at an early stage of their clinical academic career. During the fellowship, the successful candidates will be expected to undertake a defined proof of concept or pilot study aligned with the current research priorities of the Precision Imaging Beacon and the NIHR Nottingham BRC imaging research portfolio. The successful candidates will participate in a portfolio training programme which will support their funding applications for transition to an externally-funded fellowship or external grant application. Supervision and individual mentorship will be offered by a range of experts in imaging, biomedical research, MR physics, mathematical modelling and computer science.
Applications are welcome from candidates with background and strong interest in imaging, mental health, clinical neuroscience, respiratory, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal health and multimorbidities. Established research centres provide breadth and depth of strategic research areas within the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre, the Institute of Mental Health, the Pain Centre Versus Arthritis, the Centre for Sports, Exercise and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis, or the MRC-Arthritis Research UK Centre of musculoskeletal ageing research.
The posts are aimed at the most promising medically-qualified clinical researchers. To allow for variations of career paths within clinical disciplines, no fixed eligibility rule has been set on postgraduate research experience, but evidence for academic excellence is required. Candidates will have the opportunity to study towards an MRes degree. Successful candidates are expected to work towards a pre- or post-doctoral fellowship application and will be offered dedicated personal development and grant writing support.
These posts are fixed term for 12 months and are available from 1st February 2021, or for shorter fixed term contracts from no later than 1st of August 2021. Posts are available full-time or part time.
We offer extensive career development support, including individual mentoring and participation in the Fellowship Application and Support Training (FAST) scheme. Beacon fellows have access to precision imaging grant surgeries and internal pump-priming research support up to £10,000.
Applications must be accompanied by a CV, personal statement of research interests and publications including a comment on your contribution and the knowledge advance/ clinical impact of the papers,
A virtual open Day will be held on Monday 8th of February. If you are interested in attending please email PI-Beacon@nottingham.ac.uk no later than 3rd February to book a place.
