Position: Research Fellow in Optimal Neuroimaging or Vascular Physiology
Institution: University College London
Department: MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing at UCL
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The appointee will lead on the application and analysis of non-invasive techniques to image brain function and the circulation, specifically brain and systemic oxygenation, haemodynamics and metabolism in study participants using near-infrared spectroscopy and the microcirculation using laser Doppler technologies. They will join a multidisciplinary clinical phenotyping team that includes physiologists, MRI imagers, and ultrasound technicians. They will help to plan the imaging modalities to be used in research, train and supervise junior researchers, design algorithms to process data, analyse findings, write publications and present at conferences
Requirements: The post would suit someone whose background is in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, vascular physiology, or medical physics. The ideal applicant will have experience of near-infrared spectroscopy, and/or laser Doppler, a familiarity with the underlying physiology, knowledge of programming in Matlab and experience of creating algorithms for data processing and analysis. We expect the appointee to have a PhD or equivalent degree, and to have a strong record of research in these fields. We place a strong emphasis on potential for independence and on supporting career development
