UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology
An opportunity has arisen for two Radiographers to progress in their career development within an academic research environment. The posts are based in the NMR Research Unit, Queen Square MS Centre, Department of Neuroinflammation, at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. The NMR Research Unit at the Queen Square MS Centre has been successful in studying multiple sclerosis over almost three decades using a large number of clinical and quantitative MR techniques, thanks to a UCL 3T scanner dedicated to research. A combination of innovation in MR sequence development, a commitment to high quality MR quantification, and excellence in clinical studies and access to patients through collaborations with the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), has contributed to an international reputation and leadership in the field.
The post holders will work within a multidisciplinary team of scientific and clinical researchers using a Philips Ingenia 3T CX MR system and will be trained and expected to utilise a wide variety of MR techniques, including advanced methods such as DWI, MTI, spectroscopy, sodium imaging and fMRI applied not only in the brain, but also in the CNS and PNS. An Honorary Clinical contract will be sought from UCLH NHS Foundation Trust, for which a DBS check will be required.
Candidates should hold the Diploma of the College of Radiographers (Diagnostic) or a BSc in Radiography or equivalent qualification and must be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). Post qualification MRI experience is essential, as is experience of working unsupervised and an excellent understanding of MRI safety. Excellent oral and written communication skills, good inter-personal skills, and a very high level of consideration and care for patients and research subjects are also required. Advanced neuro MRI examinations, image analysis for qMRI methods, research MRI experience and an intra-venous administration certificate are desirable.
The posts are available immediately and are funded by grants from the MS Society, National MS Society and departmental funds to July 2024 in the first instance. Starting salary on UCL Grade 7 in the range from £36,770 to £44,388 pa (including London Allowance), pro rata for a part time post.
