About us

The mission of the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy is to transform the lives of people living with epilepsy for the better by identifying, understanding, and correcting or preventing the underlying mechanisms leading to the epilepsies and associated comorbidities in each individual person. Our vision is to build upon the excellence and breadth of our research, seamlessly integrating basic and clinical science.

About the role

We are now recruiting a Research Fellow to join our team and work with us on an EPSRC-funded, multi-centre project on the MR imaging aspects of new electrophysiological probes with collaborators at the University of Manchester, the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona (IMB-CNM) and the IT’IS Foundation in Zürich.


The project builds directly on the recent work by project co-investigator Dr Rob Wykes (UCL and UofM) and collaborator Dr Anton Guimera-Brunet (IMB-CNM), with whom you will work closely.

You will be responsible for developing and validating precise device localization system, working with the electronics and material scientists who design and build the devices, and perform tests in phantoms using MRI scanners. Based on your work, you will have the opportunity to lead on scientific publications as first author, and will be supported by more senior members of the project team; there may also be scope for you to be involved and assist with complimentary research studies.

The post is available immediately and funde! d by the EPSRC for two and a half years in the first instance.

We expect to hold interviews on 23 February 2023.

For a full job description and to apply for this role please visit UCL’s online recruitment portal (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/work-at-ucl/search-ucl-jobs) and search using vacancy reference B02-04497.

About you

You’ll have a PhD in Physics, Engineering, or a related area, coupled with experience of working with devices in the MR environment and MRI scanner sequence development and testing. Excellent communication, interpersonal, and problem-solving skills are essential, as is the capacity to work with external collaborators and a commitment to supporting high quality research. Experience of working with MR imaging computational simulations and working on the safety aspects of devices in MRI is desirable.

What we offer

Appointment as Research Fellow is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be as Research Assistant (salary £34,502 - £36,348 per annum) with appointment as Research Fellow being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.

As well as the exciting opportunities this role presents, we also offer some great benefits; visit https://www.ucl.ac.uk/work-at-ucl/reward-and-benefits to find out more.

We will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible, and job share basis wherever possible.
