The Centre aims to better understand the workings of the human brain in health and disease. Its extensive facilities include a new 7T Siemens Terra and this post will focus on developing methodologies and analysis strategies for ultra-high resolution functional MRI data acquired on this new platform. The Centre has pioneered many neuroimaging methodologies, including Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) and Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM). The Methods Group specialises in the development of a broad range of image processing methods based on principled generative models of image data and statistical analyses aimed at interpreting neural signals, see: https://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/methods/.
This is an ongoing recruitment campaign and we will draw down applications once per month to assess and interview. If you are interested in a role, we encourage you to apply early, when posts have been filled, we will close the advertisement. We will draw down applications in: early January, February and March.
The appointee will engage in their own research projects while liaising closely with the Methods, Physics and Computational Anatomy teams to provide solutions to challenges posed by ultra-high field imaging that integrate both acquisition and modelling strategies. Collaboration with neuroscientists from other disciplines working at the Centre is another important aspect of the roles, including the provision of advice and guidance on best practice neuroimaging strategies.
Applicants must have a PhD (Senior Research Fellow) or, if not already held, the PhD must be obtained by the agreed start-date (Research Fellow applicants only) in a topic related to numerical computing and methods development. Strong programming expertise (e.g. MATLAB or C/C++) and experience with ultra-high field MRI are essential; Senior Research Fellow applicants must also have demonstrable experience in relevant areas of methodological development and of leading projects to completion. Experience collaborating with and providing support and advice to colleagues from different disciplines, and a strong publication record of publishing high quality research results is desirable.
The post is available immediately and is funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust for the period to 30 November 2023 in the first instance. Appointment will be on the UCL Grade 7 (Research Fellow), the salary for which ranges from £36,770 to £44,388 per annum (including London Allowance) or UCL Grade 8 (Senior Research Fellow), the salary for which ranges from £45,610 to £53,757 per annum (including London Allowance).
Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £32,217 - £33,958 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
