Brc Mr Physicist at Imperial College London

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral position at Imperial College London, UK. Potential candidates should apply before January 22, 2019.

The Imperial College Healthcare Trust NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Neuroscience Theme is seeking an independent, creative MR Physicist interested in becoming a leader for advanced research neuroimaging.

A primary focus will be on leading collaborations with Invicro Ltd and Imperial College London molecular imagers for development of the capabilities of integrated MRI-PET through advancing MRI methods. It is intended that the successful candidate will take on a major leadership role for the new MRI-PET facility. With establishment of the new pan-London 7T facility, the range of opportunities in the role will expand and the post-holder will help to develop a science base allowing Imperial researchers to become active users for novel programmes. This is a role with substantial potential for career growth in a priority research area.

Particular areas of interest include:

- PET-MRI joint reconstruction for quantitative PET

- Simultaneous MRI/EEG/PET for analyses of functional connectivities

- Perfusion imaging for joint MRI-PET modelling

- Sodium imaging for integrated analyses with measures of brain bioenergetics

- Diffusion tensor imaging and Q-space imaging methods development

- Quantitative methods for multi-site protocols

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Medical Physics (or related discipline) and have experience in MRI sequence development, with expertise in MRI data processing. Considerable independence is expected, with anticipation of a growing role in leadership of the research. In addition, he/she will be expected to submit publications to refereed journals and to join in attracting external research funding. The ability to work closely and develop effective working relationships will be imperative.

There will be opportunities for supervision of students. Experience in other teaching roles, including lecturing, will be enabled as part of the broad range of career development opportunities that Imperial College makes available to its post-doctoral research staff.

The contract is fixed term to 31 March 2022 in the first instance. However, the intention is to extend the role subject to successful renewal of the BRC Neuroscience Theme in 2022.

For informal inquiries or questions about the role, please contact Prof Paul Matthews at

Deadline: January 22, 2019
