Position: Research Fellow in Biomedical Optics
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering is looking to appoint a Research Fellow in Biomedical Optics in the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory (BORL). The purpose of this post is to play a central role in the first applications of a new generation of wearable optical neuroimaging technologies. At BORL, we have developed several high-density, wearable diffuse optical tomography (DOT) systems that lead the field in terms of sensitivity, usability and image quality, and allow high-quality functional neuroimaging data to be obtained in a whole range of new experimental environments
Requirements: Candidates are expected to have a PhD or be about to submit a PhD in Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Neuroimaging, Neuroscience, Psychology or a related subject. Extensive experience in the processing and interpretation of complex/multi-modal neuroimaging datasets, specifically using Matlab and matlab-based toolboxes and an excellent publication track-record are also essential
