Two vacancies for fMRI research at Glasgow

Two Research Assistant / Research Associate posts at University of Glasgow

Two posts are currently available for fMRI research at the University of Glasgow:


1. Research Assistant / Research Associate

The post will include multivariate data analysis and collaboration with computational modelling groups as part of our consortium. The post involves contribution to high-end data analysis and coordination across human brain project consortium partners. Specifically, the job requires preparation of stimulation material, development of experimental procedures, contributing to the design and programming of the behavioural, fMRI experiments, recording and analysing of the results, developing new multivariate-analysis procedures and assisting in supervision of junior lab members, review of current literature in relevant fields, presenting at conferences, and participating in the writing up of the results. We also require conceptual integration across the other European human brain project partners.

This is a 22 month EU funded project – which is part of the human brain project, working with Professor Lars Muckli (PI), entitled “Context varying amplification of expectation and task specification”. The project will involve functional brain imaging at ultra-high resolution (7 Tesla).

Informal enquiries to Professor Lars Muckli:

Closing date: 22nd May 2016


2. Research Assistant / Associate

The post-holder will contribute to a 3-year project on neurovascular coupling, metabolism and high-resolution fMRI in rodents working with Dr Jozien Goense. The project focuses on development and application of combined fMRI and electrophysiological methods to address questions pertaining to neurovascular coupling and cortical circuitry in healthy animals and in disease. Specifically, the job requires expert knowledge in experimental neuroscience, preferably electrophysiology and/or MRI, and an interest in technology and quantitative methods.

The post-holder will be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project, as opportunities allow.

There are also opportunities for translational and collaborative work in the context of the new human 7T facility in the imaging centre of excellence (ICE).
