Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Grade 8: £37,382 – £44,607 p.a.

Description:The Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB) seeks a postdoctoral researcher to work with Drs Tim Behrens, Saad Jbabdi and Stam Sotiropoulos in Diffusion MRI methods research. Employment would ideally start in September 2013 and is funded by the European Research Council for a period of 3 years in the first instance, as part of the Developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP). The dHCP is a collaboration between King’s College, FMRIB and Imperial College and will chart the growth of connections in the human brain, before (in utero) and after birth in 1000 babies using diffusion and functional MRI.The postholder’s contribution to this project will be to develop biophysical models of white matter architecture and new connectivity mapping techniques.
Eligibility:Candidates should have a doctorate in a relevant discipline, together with knowledge of statistics and preferably Bayesian learning, with the necessary mathematical and computational skills to put these into practice. Knowledge in methods for analysing neuroimaging data, in particular diffusion MRI, is desirable but not essential. Skills in computer programming (especially Matlab and C++) are essential.An appointment at Grade 7 (£29,541 – £36,298) would be considered, with an appropriate adjustment in duties, should a suitable candidate not be sourced at Grade 8.

Deadline:The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 23 August 2013. Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
