Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Human Bone Marrow

University of Oxford - RDM Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, John Radcliffe Hospital

Location: Oxford
Salary: £34,308 to £39,745 Grade 7 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 6th December 2022
Closes: 9th January 2023
Job Ref: 162005

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the MRI physics group at the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR) to work on an exciting new project aiming to explore the potential for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess Bone Marrow (BM) fibrosis as a biomarker of disease progression in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The project will develop multiparametric MRI-based assessment of BM fibrosis in MPN patients to overcome current limitations and replace biopsy, providing a non-invasive, quantitative, robust and widely implementable diagnostic modality for clinical MPN research and NHS use. You will be supervised by Prof. Damian Tyler and Dr Elizabeth Tunnicliffe (experts in MRI methods development) and further supported by Prof. Neubauer (expert in the clinical utilisation of MRI) and Prof. Mead and Dr Royston (consultants in haematology and experts in the clinical management and assessment of MPNs). This is an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to development new MRI imaging methods and test their utility in disease, and to develop and validate model-based analysis methods.

Your responsibilities will include, developing and adapting new quantitative MRI acquisition and analysis strategies for the assessment of fibrosis in human bone marrow. As well as this you will work collaboratively with the MR physics team at OCMR and the wider group including clinicians, radiographers, nurses and other members of the team.

You are required to hold a PhD in MR physics, or hold a PhD in the physical sciences with relevant postdoctoral experience and demonstrate proven knowledge of magnetic resonance techniques and physics. Experience of working on clinical MRI systems would be desirable.

This is a full time appointment on a fixed term contract until 31-March-2025 and is funded by the BRC. You will be based at the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR), level 0, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online; you will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 09 January 2023 can be considered. Interviews are scheduled to place on 18 January 2023.
