Research Fellow in Paediatric Brain Imaging

UCL - Biological Sciences

Location: London
Salary: £40,524 to £48,763 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 3rd November 2023
Closes: 2nd January 2024
Job Ref: B02-05994

Biosciences is one of the world’s foremost centres for research and teaching in the biological sciences and one of the largest Divisions within UCL, undertaking a significant amount of research and teaching. The Division has a diverse portfolio addressing all areas of biology from protein interactions to cell function, organism development, genetics, population studies and the environment. Computational modelling approaches are frequently used alongside experimental research programmes and much of our research crosses traditional boundaries, including the relationship of biodiversity to the health of the planet. Activity is underpinned by high calibre science technology platforms and state of the art equipment. Educational activity includes a range of undergraduate programmes, an expanding number of Masters Programmes and a substantial number of postgraduate research students.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a collaborative project between the world-famous UCL Medawar Pain and Somatosensory Labs and Birkbeck BabyLab and ToddlerLab under the supervision of Dr Lorenzo Fabrizi and Prof Emily Jones to study the link between early sensory experiences and long-term sensory processing abilities in preterm-born neonates and children.

The main purpose of this position is to study the early development of somatosensation in preterm infant and how this is related to sensory abilities in childhood using Electroencephalography (EEG) and novel sensory testing paradigms. This will provide an early identification of individual at risk of developing sensory processing challenges and associated neurodisabilities.

The post holder will work as part of a new multi-disciplinary collaboration between UCL, UCLH and Birkbeck which merges the world-class expertise of the centres in preterm brain development and neurodevelopmental assessments. This role is a 3-years position in the first instance.
