The NMR Research Unit, based at the Queen Square MS Centre, has been successful in studying multiple sclerosis over almost three decades using a large number of clinical and quantitative MR techniques, thanks to a UCL 3T scanner dedicated to research. A combination of innovation in MR sequence development, a commitment to high quality MR quantification, and excellence in clinical studies and access to patients through collaborations with the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), has contributed to an international reputation and leadership in the field.
About the role
We are looking for a Senior Research Radiographer to join a multidisciplinary team of scientific and clinical researchers. You will be using a Philips 3T Ingenia CX MR system and will be trained and expected to utilise a wide variety of MRI techniques, including advanced methods such as DWI, MTI, spectroscopy, sodium imaging and fMRI applied not only in the brain, but also in the CNS and PNS.
The NMR Research Unit has supported the professional development of radiographers for years. Lead Research Radiographer, Dr Yiannakas, established his international reputation through contribution to the development of quantitative MRI methods for clinical studies of neurological disorders. We offer all members of the team opportunities for professional development and involvement with the research output of the group through an agreed personal development plan.
An Honorary Clinical Contract will be sought from UCLH NHS Foundation Trust, for which a DBS check will be required.
The post is available immediately and is supported by departmental funds until July 2024 in the first instance with a possibility of further extension.
For a full job description and to apply for this role please visit UCL’s online recruitment portal and search using vacancy reference B02-04533.
You will hold a Diploma of the College of Radiographers (DCR) or a BSc in Diagnostic Radiography (or equivalent qualification) and must be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). Post-qualification MRI experience is highly desirable, although not essential, as full training will be provided.
