We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the Northeast of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role
The main purpose of this role is for a skilled MR physicist to provide leadership in the delivery of high-quality research and teaching focused on methodology development and application in clinical and/or preclinical MR imaging/spectroscopy: a focus on neuroscience and/or neurology applications is desired. As part of this role, you will be expected to contribute to the wider academic, scholarly, and professional requirements of the Institute and the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Newcastle University.

You will become a senior member of the Centre for In Vivo Imaging and be based in the Translational and Clinical Research Institute which has a rich and diverse group of scientific and clinical investigators.  Two 3.0T research-dedicated clinical scanners, a 3.0T clinical PET-MR scanner and a 7.0T preclinical MRI scanner form the core of imaging capacity, with additional facilities for preclinical CT and optical imaging. Human studies are supported by a dedicated research radiography team.

You will be expected to develop both your own independent programme of research as well as forging close collaborative links with colleagues at the University and in our local NHS Trusts who can benefit from the use of imaging and/or spectroscopy in their research. There are existing collaborations with the Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre, and researchers in various relevant Research Themes (including Innovation, Methodology and Application; Mental Health, Dementia and Neurodegeneration; Neuroscience, Neurodisability and Neurological Disorders; Mitochondrial and Neuromuscular Diseases), as well as opportunities to work with Newcastle University Centres of Research Excellence (NuCOREs) in Cancer, Rare Disease, Healthier Lives and Transformative Neuroscience. There are also research and teaching collaborations with the Faculty of Science, Agriculture and Engineering. This research activity will be established by the candidate attracting high quality grant income as both a lead and co-applicant on grant applications to the major funding bodies.

Present teaching activities of CIVI include the provision of teaching and assessment for the MSc in Clinical Science (Medical Physics) and specialist MRes courses, as well as the supervision of research dissertations for the MPhys and BSc in Physics, and MRes and BSc dissertations in Biomedical Sciences.
