3 x MR job vacancies

Three posts are currently available for MR research at the University of Edinburgh.

Research Fellow in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (035903)

A post-doctoral Scientist with a proven track record in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) research is required to join the existing MRI research team at the Clinical Research Imaging Centre (CRIC), Edinburgh Imaging at the University of Edinburgh.

The post provides an excellent opportunity for the Research Fellow to develop their own program of clinical imaging research at the same time as supporting established clinical MRI research in CRIC and leading on the setup of new projects within the centre by clinical researchers from both NHS and University. The post’s primary focus is supporting the existing range of clinical imaging projects being run in CRIC, with a focus on reproductive health (including fetal and neonatal biomarker development) as well as cardiac (tissue characterisation and coronary artery imaging) and neuro 3T research.

Research Fellow in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (035919)

A post-doctoral Scientist with a proven track record in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) research is required to join the existing MRI research team at the Clinical Research Imaging Centre (CRIC), Edinburgh Imaging at the University of Edinburgh.

The post is co-funded by the Experimental Medicine Imaging group of GlaxoSmithkline (GSK) and the successful applicant will act as a key point of contact between GSK and the University of Edinburgh to initiate and further develop collaborative projects focusing on the development of MRI biomarkers to disease progression and drug development.

The primary focus for this post is the use of novel MR contrast agents in clinical application, and DCE-MRI analysis, but the post also provides an excellent opportunity for the Research Fellow to develop their own program of multi-modality clinical imaging research as part of the established research program undertaken in collaboration between CRIC and GSK, leading on the setup of new multi-centre projects. CRIC has an established network of internationally leading clinical and industry research collaborators, and the post may also involve translational work on our preclinical 7T MR facility.

Research Associate in Medical Image Computing and Machine Learning (035982)

We have funding from the National Institutes of Health (USA) together with partners from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, University of California Los Angeles (California, USA), and Siemens, to investigate new non-invasive techniques of cardiovascular imaging with MRI.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and strongly motivated researcher to join us and build upon our efforts of bridging machine learning with medical image computing. Areas of interest include: the design of segmentation and registration algorithms using machine learning techniques, and the development of algorithms for the extraction of biomarkers from cardiac MRI datasets available for this project.
