In the era of big data, there is a growing need for systematic imaging on larger cohorts of subjects. The School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Science at KCL has a large MRI capability including 7T, three 3T, 1.5T, 0.55T, XMR, PET-MR and ultra-low field (0.064T) systems. This MR physics post has been created to achieve larger scale coordinated activities across these systems to support a coming generation of cohort studies. A primary objective will be to set up and be the key MR physics lead for a UK-Biobank inspired study on a cohort of ~3000 twins who have been deeply genotyped and phenotyped. This will involve doing initial pilot testing, optimising imaging performance and putting in place sustainable practices for data handling and quality assurance to support the study. Further activities will relate to systematic use of our capacity to support the research portfolio of our NIHR Imaging Clinical Research Facility, to create opportunities for small and large scale research and to achieve added value by harmonisation and optimisation of individual systems, acquisitions and protocols.
This role requires someone who has strong MR physics knowledge and a capacity for achieving and maintaining evidenced based imaging capacity. The work will be varied and will require a high level of technical ability, understanding of working in a clinical context and capacity to work across disciplines. The post holder will be expected to do pulse programming as needed and to be capable of data analysis using Matlab, python or similar.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract until 31.08.26
