Academic & Research
We wish to recruit a highly adaptable academic with expertise in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for the role of MR Physicist to support our growing fMRI/MRI group. The salary range will be £35,505 to £39,938 subject to experience with opportunities for salary progression based on performance.
The successful candidate will have the skills, experience, and research interests in functional imaging needed to develop research experiments, protocols and equipment to undertake world leading research. They will prepare publications and grant applications as well as providing technical and research support for functional neuroimaging studies across the university for academics in psychology, sports science and physics amongst others. They will be expected to spend time each week on both our City and Clifton campuses to undertake the different aspects of this role.
The successful candidate will have a strong technical background, ideally demonstrating knowledge and experience across the whole breadth of MRI research including hardware, pulse sequence programming and data analysis, as well as practical experience in scanning participants including those from more vulnerable groups (e.g. children and older adults). NTU currently has a 1.5T Siemens Avanto scanner with a newly acquired VisuaStimDigital AV system. A particular interest in optimising the research capability of 1.5T systems for functional imaging would be considered an advantage.
We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.
The successful candidate will have an undergraduate qualification in physics or other relevant discipline and a PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging or other relevant discipline.
If you have technical queries about this role, please contact Prof Rob Morris (email@example.com). For general enquiries about the role, please contact Prof Suvo Mitra (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This full-time post is available immediately. The post is currently funded over a fixed term of 3 years (until July 2025). The post holder will be supported in their own grant-writing plans and, depending on performance, there may be opportunities for extension. The successful applicant will be subject to a criminal record check from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
Closing date: 30 April 2023
