Research Associate/Fellow (fixed-term)
The Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre
University of Nottingham -
School of Physics and Astronomy
Characterization of Brain Network Activity Using Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
£24,520 - £35,938 per annum depending on skills and experience (£27,578 per annum minimum with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance.
Applications are invited from post-doctoral researchers for a research fellowship available in the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre, University of Nottingham. This post is funded by the Dr Hadwen Trust and the Medical Research Council. The research themes are: 1) development of methods for characterization of electrical and neurochemical brain network activity using MEG, 7T MRS and 7T fMRI. 2) Application of those methods to investigate abnormal network activity in schizophrenia. 3) Further application of those methods to gain insight into the effect of pharmacological intervention on brain activity.
The successful candidate will join the research team at the Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre. This centre has been at the forefront of development of MR since its inception in the 1970's and Sir Peter Mansfield jointly won the 2003 Nobel Prize for his contribution to this field. The SPMMRC now houses one of the world's largest research groups working on development and application of imaging technology including MRI, MRS, MEG, EEG and fMRI. The centre is equipped with one of only two 7T MR scanners in the UK as well as a state of the art 275 channel MEG system, a 3T MR system, a 1.5T MR system and several MR and MEG compatible EEG systems.
Candidates should have a BSc/MPhys Degree or equivalent in Physics or related subject, and PhD (or near to completion) or equivalent in imaging physics (or a related area); experience in MEG and/or MRS and MRI is desirable.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of three years.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Elizabeth Liddle, Email: Elizabeth.firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44(0)115 7484013. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
