Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow (MRI Physics)

UCL - Department of Imaging Neuroscience

Location: London
Salary: £42,099 to £60,521
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 19th April 2024
Closes: 23rd May 2024
Job Ref: B02-06794

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.

We are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join the Physics Group, based in the department, a highly collaborative team working at the interface of technical development and application in neuroscience studies. Salary offered at Research Fellow/UCL Grade 7 (£42,099 - £50,585 per annum including London Allowance) or Senior Research Fellow/UCL Grade 8 (£51,474 - £60,521 per annum including London Allowance), dependent on skills and experience.

You will develop advanced laminar fMRI or qMRI (enhanced microstructural specificity) protocols for deployment in neuroscience studies. The role 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 role is available immediately and funded for three years in the first instance.

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 Professor Martina Callaghan (m.callaghan at ucl.ac.uk).

You will be enthusiastic, technically able, and highly collaborative, and interested in developing the next generation of tools for naturalistic neuroimaging. You should have a PhD in MRI physics, biomedical engineering, or a related field, with demonstrable expertise in neuroimaging and expert programming skills (e.g., MatLab, Julia, Python, C/C++).

You will also be specialised in at least two of the following areas (specialisation in three areas is required for appointment as Senior Research Fellow):

  • fMRI protocol design and data analysis.
  • Pulse sequence programming preferably on the Siemens platform (IDEA/ICE), relevant experience with open platforms such as Pulseq will be considered.
  • 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.

Additionally, candidates interested in appointment at Senior Research Fellow level will have a well-established track record of impactful publications and experience of supervising staff and/or students.
