Dear FSL users
On behalf of Dr Nikolaus Weiskopf, I am distributing the following job ad:
A postdoctoral position for an expert in MR data analysis is available within the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (WTCN), UCL Institute of Neurology. The Centre conducts cutting-edge research by means of functional and structural brain imaging, and is equipped with three 3 T MRI scanners (Siemens Tim Trio with 32-ch head coil), an MEG system (CTF/VSM), and MR compatible EEG and TMS systems. One of the MRI systems will soon be equipped with an optical tracking system for prospective motion correction (Kineticor).
We are seeking a highly motivated individual to work within the physics group at the WTCN reporting to Dr Nikolaus Weiskopf, Head of MRI Physics. The group specializes in the development of a broad range of methods, including diffusion, structural and functional imaging, based on understanding the underlying MR physics, to arrive at efficient solutions. Current projects include, but are not limited to, maximizing acquisition efficiency and resolution, artifacts correction, quantitative MRI and neurofeedback techniques (see http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/Research/physics.html).
The post holder will be expected to support on-going neuroscience research and will pursue individual research into MR image reconstruction, data processing and modeling methods related to the primary projects of the group.
Applicants must have a PhD or, if not already held, the PhD must have been obtained by the agreed start-date (Research Associate applicants only), in physics, biomedical engineering, computer science, or a comparable subject. A strong background in MR image processing, modeling and data analysis is essential, as is expertise in programming high-level languages (e.g. C/C++, Matlab). Applicants must be specialists in at least one (for Research Associate) or two (for Senior Research Associate) of the following areas: Siemens MR scanners and software (IDEA, ICE), MR image reconstruction methods, anatomical and/or functional MRI, optimization of MR acquisition protocols, SPM8 / SPM 12 software, pulse sequence programming, DTI or more advanced diffusion imaging processing (e.g., axonal diameter measurements), time-series analysis. Those applying for the Senior Research Associate position will also need to be able to demonstrate an established publication track record and experience of leading a team of researchers.
The post is available immediately and is funded by the Wellcome Trust for three years in the first instance. Starting salary in the range of £32,375-£39,132 pa on UCL Grade 7 (Research Associate) or £40,126- £47,441 pa on UCL Grade 8 (Senior Research Associate) including London Allowance, superannuable.
You should apply for this post through UCL's online recruitment – http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/jobs where you can download a job description and person specification using ref: 1329569.
