Position: Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow: Methods Developer
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Centre aims to better understand the workings of the human brain in health and disease. Its extensive facilities include a new 7T Siemens Terra and these posts will focus on developing methodologies and analysis strategies for ultra-high resolution functional MRI data acquired on this new platform. The Centre has pioneered many neuroimaging methodologies, including Statistical Parametric Mapping (SPM) and Dynamic Causal Modelling (DCM). The appointee will engage in their own research projects while liaising closely with the Methods, Physics and Computational Anatomy teams to provide solutions to challenges posed by ultra-high field imaging that integrate both acquisition and modelling strategies. Collaboration with neuroscientists from other disciplines working at the Centre is another important aspect of the roles, including the provision of advice and guidance on best practice neuroimaging strategies
Requirements: Applicants must have a PhD (Senior Research Fellow) or, if not already held, the PhD must be obtained by the agreed start-date (Research Fellow applicants only) in a topic related to numerical computing and methods development. Strong programming expertise (e.g. MATLAB or C/C++) and experience with ultra-high field MRI are essential; Senior Research Fellow applicants must also have demonstrable experience in relevant areas of methodological development and of leading projects to completion
