Postdoctoral Researcher in Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

University of Oxford - Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN)

Location: Oxford
Salary: £36,024 to £44,263 - please see advert
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 4th December 2023
Closes: 19th January 2024
Job Ref: 169733

Salary (£): £36,024 – £44,263 per annum. A less experienced candidate may be appointed at Grade 6 (£32,332 - £38,205 per annum), with a commensurate adjustment in either the essential criteria, responsibilities or duties.

Location: WIN, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9DU.

We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled Postdoctoral Researcher in Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy to join our WIN/FMRIB Physics Group. Reporting to Dr. William Clarke, the post holder will be responsible for carrying out development of functional magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (fMRSI) using ultra-high field (7T) MRI. Specifically, you will develop and validate novel fMRSI pulse sequences. This could include incorporating cutting edge 7T (parallel transmit) hardware, motion correction, developing sequence trajectories, and creating novel reconstruction techniques.

The work will be part of a Wellcome Fellowship project held by Dr Clarke. The project aims to develop a robust acquisition and reconstruction platform for 7T fMRSI, enabling the measurement of neurochemical dynamics during brain activation across multiple brain regions simultaneously. The project will be integrated with new custom analysis techniques, developed as part of an existing collaboration with WIN’s analysis group. The post holder will also provide guidance to less experienced members of the research group, including junior postdocs, collaborators and PhD and project students.

Responsibilities include:

  • Adapting existing and developing new scientific techniques to develop functional multi-region spectroscopy (fMRSI).
  • Contributing to and grow the group's open-science software for magnetic resonance spectroscopy.

  • Managing own academic research.

  • Conducting MRS experiments to test and validate new pulse sequences and protocols.

  • Collaborate in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles.

It is essential that the successful candidate hold a doctoral degree (PhD or DPhil) in chemistry, physics, engineering or other relevant discipline, or be nearing completion. They should also demonstrate knowledge of MRI physics, expertise in software programming, and experience in experimental biomedical research. It is desirable for the post-holder to have experience in MRI pulse sequence development, with analysing methods in neuroimaging, and with developing open-science tools and software packages.

Please see the below 'Job Description' for further details on the responsibilities and selection criteria, as well as further information about the university and how to apply.

This post is full time and fixed term for 4 years.

Only applications received before 12:00 midday on 19th January 2024 will be considered.

Interviews are expected to be held as soon as possible thereafter.
