Postdoc Position in Radio-frequency Design for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Imperial College London, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position. This fellowship is last for 12 months and posible to extend. The deadline for applying is September 29, 2019.

Recent research within the Medical Engineering group has produced a novel MRI scanner which offers unique new capabilities for musculoskeletal imaging, particularly ligaments, tendons and cartilage, which are difficult to assess using conventional techniques. This new method has the exciting potential to become a game changer in diagnosing injuries or disease in joints, with important implications for subsequent treatment, for example of sports injuries.

Having demonstrated the viability of the approach, we now have funding from the Wellcome Trust which aims to maximise the image quality from the new system and to enable early clinical studies, which will be conducted in collaboration with medical partners.

We are looking to hire a Research Associate to work on this new project, where we will be involving design and development of novel RF receivers, the associated electronic circuitry, and various related aspects of MRI system integration. There is a strong opportunity to be part of a team producing new IP with prospects for future commercialisation.

This is a fixed term position for up to 12 months in the first instance.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397 – 37,486 per annum.
