MRI Physics (Senior) Research Fellow (Maternity Cover)

UCL - Department of Imaging Neuroscience’s Physics Group

Location: London, Hybrid
Salary: £42,099 to £60,521
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 26th February 2024
Closes: 10th March 2024
Job Ref: B02-06559

The Department of Imaging Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary Department for neuroimaging excellence. We bring together clinicians and scientists who study higher cognitive function using neuroimaging techniques. Our goal is to understand how thought and perception arise from brain activity, and how such processes break down in neurological and psychiatric disease. The Department studies all aspects of higher cognitive function and develops cutting edge data acquisition and analysis methods.

This role is within the Department of Imaging Neuroscience’s Physics Group, a highly collaborative team working at the interface of technical development and application in neuroscience studies.

The role will develop advanced laminar fMRI (non-BOLD) or qMRI (enhanced microstructural specificity) protocols for deployment in neuroscience studies. It offers a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of neuroimaging research with access to a 7T and two 3T research-dedicated MRI scanners.

The post is funded by an award from Wellcome and is available from 25 March 2024. The post is to undertake specific maternity cover, the duration of which is dependent upon completion of the cover, return of the post holder, or cessation of the funding, whichever is the soonest. In the first instance the cover is estimated to be for nine months.

If you need reasonable adjustments or a more accessible format to apply for this job online, or have any queries regarding the application process, please contact the Institute of Neurology HR Team (ion.hradmin at ucl.ac.uk).

Informal enquiries regarding the role can be addressed to Martina Callaghan (m.callaghan at ucl.ac.uk).

The post requires an enthusiastic, technically able, and highly collaborative individual. You should have a PhD in MRI physics, with demonstrable expertise in functional or quantitative MRI and Expert programming stills (e.g. MatLab, Python, C/C++). A well-established publication track record is also a requirement for appointment as Senior Research Fellow.

Applicants must also be specialized in at least two (Research Fellow) or three (Senior Research Fellow) of the following areas:

  • non-BOLD fMRI contrast mechanisms, e.g. VASO, bSSFP or T2-prep based;
  • pulse sequence programming on the Siemens platform (IDEA/ICE);
  • image reconstruction including advanced parallel imaging techniques, e.g. compressed sensing, and open platforms such as Gadgetron; biophysical modelling, e.g. relaxometry and contrast models, diffusion processes, physiological models or models of neurovascular coupling.

The post is graded as UCL Grade 7 for Research Fellow with salary in the range £42,099 - £50,585 per annum, or as UCL Grade 8 for Senior Research Fellow with salary in the range £51,474 - £60,521 per annum, both including London Allowance.

As well as the exciting opportunities this role presents, we also offer some great benefits; visit https://www.ucl.ac.uk/work-at-ucl/reward-and-benefits to find out more.
