About us

The mission of the UCL GOS Institute of Child Health is to improve the health and well-being of children, and the adults they will become, through world-class research, education and public engagement. The UCL GOS ICH, together with its clinical partner Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, forms the largest concentration of children’s health research outside North America. GOS ICH’s activities include active engagement with children and families, to ensure that our work is relevant and appropriate to their needs. The Institute offers world-class education and training across a wide range of teaching and life learning programmes which address the needs of students and professional groups who are interested in and undertaking work relevant to child health. GOS ICH holds an Athena SWAN Charter Gold Award.

About the role

This is an opportunity to develop and build on a promising new medical image-! processin g technique to support surgical interventions for children with brain tumours at Great Ormond Street Hospital and beyond. It will involve working closely with research and clinical colleagues from different specialties, gathering clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data acquired from paediatric patients, processing it and evaluating the outcomes. The main technologies that this role will build upon are intraoperative MRI, which can be used to aid surgeons with navigation in the brain during resective surgery, and diffusion-weighted MRI, which provides information specifically about the white matter tracts that connect brain regions to each other. Since these connections underpin important functions like vision, movement and speech, they must be preserved intact as much as possible. Diffusion MRI is currently common in research but much less used clinically due to the time and expertise required; through this work we aim to reduce both of these requirements significant! ly. This post is available until 31/12/2025, in the first instance.

About you

You will have (or shortly expect to receive) a PhD in a numerate subject and some programming experience, along with a keen interest in neuroimaging and its paediatric applications. You will be an effective communicator, able to work with a range of colleagues as well as individually, and will be able to show evidence of reporting clearly and impactfully on your work and the associated findings. Knowledge of brain anatomy, previous experience with diffusion MRI and familiarity with Unix command-line utilities would all be highly beneficial.
