Job description

The Department of Neuroimaging runs a number of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, and is also involved with other neuroimaging modalities such as EEG (electroencephalography) and PET (Positron Emission Tomography), along with physiological measurements such as heart rate, and skin conductance. The Department provides MRI services (through its Major Research Facility) to researchers investigating a range of neurological, psychiatric and other disorders, along with normal development and ageing and other basic neuroscience questions. The post holder will be responsible for the development of computer programs and functional MRI (fMRI) paradigms for neuroimaging studies within the department, institution and more widely with our national and international collaborators. The post holder will also be required to support such studies once they are running. 

The post will involve interpreting end-user (i.e. researchers’) requirements for the design and technical specification for such studies. These will be developed alongside the current members of the Paradigm Development Team. 

This post will be offered on a full-time, indefinite contract.

Key responsibilities
  • Developing software for new fMRI studies and for other Neuroimaging methods using a variety of software frameworks. This may involve developing completely new software or adapting existing pipelines (.NET, C++, Rust and others) along with interfacing with multiple hardware devices using a variety of protocols & API's. 
  • Explaining to researchers (verbally, and through written documentation) how to use programs that the post holder has developed, and how to access and interpret any behavioral and physiological data generated by the programs. 
  • Supporting existing programs (mainly written in .NET, Rust/C++), for studies already in progress and cross-site studies using commercial/open source experimental applications (Presentation, Cogent, E-Prime, PsychoPy, Psychtoolbox etc) 
  • As part of the Paradigm Development Team, providing remedial support for any urgent problems with the software and hardware systems that occur during the course of a study. 
  • Along with other members of the Paradigm Development Team, being involved with the set-up and support of systems and equipment required by a study. 
  • Once experienced the post holder will assist in the design and specification of novel neuroimaging paradigms. Thus, the ability to liaise with engineers, physicists and application scientists in the development of fMRI paradigms is essential along with the ability to communicate complex issues in a clear manner. 

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.

5.       Approachable, personable and able to communicate with specialists in other technical fields. 

Desirable criteria

1.       Previous experience with stimulus presentation software ( e.g. Presentation, Cogent, E-Prime, PsychoPy, Psychotoolbox ). 

2.       Practical experience of developing electronic and/or mechanical solutions to engineering problems. 

3.       Experience with IT equipment ( Networking, AV, HID devices ).
