Job description

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate to support an MRI project investigating the brain changes in foetuses, neonates and infants at risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. Specifically, the role is part of the largest autism research programme in Europe, EU-AIMS-2-TRIALS. The over-arching aim of this work is to determine the biological impact of risk factors for neurodevelopmental disorders on the brain and to identify treatment targets.

This research role represents a unique opportunity to work on a pan-European programme of research into neurodevelopmental disorders over the lifespan, uniquely spanning prenatal life through to adulthood. The successful candidate should have substantial experience in the analysis of MRI and specifically a PhD in a neuroimaging in neonates and infants. They should also have research experience in neurodevelopmental psychiatric conditions.

Working closely with the team in KCL and with the analysts in Donders University and across EU-AIMS-2-TRIALS, the successful candidate will primarily contribute to analysis of pre-existing data and incorporate the new data acquired during the course of this post. They should be flexible and able to contribute to other aspects of the conduct and completion of the research project where appropriate. A focus will be on the publication and dissemination of the research findings. For this role in particular, in addition to an in-depth neuroimaging analysis expertise in MRI and the statistical techniques that can be applied to these methods they will be encouraged to be innovative in their approach to analyses; and be prepared to develop skills further. The department is highly collaborative and new collaborations both internally and with European partners are welcome and encouraged.

The successful candidate will have ample scope to develop his or her own research interests within this programme of work. They will be supported in working towards a fellowship application to support their own research in due course. 

The post holder will also work closely with other research staff on the project and in the department and within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, to foster effective collaborative working relationships. Importantly, the post holder will also have the opportunity to contribute to education, for example, providing teaching where appropriate to the host departments.
