An enthusiastic senior postdoctoral researcher is required to lead the analysis of neuroimaging data from a world-class multimodal programme of research focused on biomarkers in the neurodegenerative disorder amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS; also known as motor neurone disease, MND).
The successful candidate will have expertise in structural and functional MRI analysis, and will have the opportunity to develop an independent research programme in the vibrant neuroimaging and neurodegeneration community of the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN), within the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences (NDCN).
The postholder will be responsible for delivering and developing the ALS research group’s projects in structural and functional neuroimaging, and supporting multi-centre research projects as part of the Neuroimaging Society in ALS (NiSALS). This will include analysis of existing longitudinal datasets collected locally, and contribution to analysis of multi-centre cohorts of data.
It is essential that the postholder hold a relevant PhD or DPhil with post-qualification research experience alongside having a strong publication record. It is also vital that they possess sufficient specialist knowledge in neuroimaging analysis to develop research projects and methodologies and have the ability to independently plan and manage a research project, including experience of managing a research budget. It would also be beneficial to the role if they have experience of ALS research and of analysis MED or MRS data.
A less experienced candidate may be appointed at Grade 7 (£32,236 - £39,609 p.a.) with commensurate adjustments in essential criteria, responsibilities and duties.
The post is full-time for a fixed-term of 2 years in the first instance.
Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 11 September 2019 will be considered.
Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.
