Vacancy: 7T fMRI Research Assistant/Associate position at University of Glasgow

Research Assistant / Associate post at University of Glasgow: Cortical layer dependent fMRI at 7T

We are looking to recruit a Post Doc to join a 3-year MRC funded project titled: ‘Laminar fMRI and resting state fMRI in the somatosensory system – effect of peripheral nerve injury on cortical circuits’, working with Jozien Goense (PI, MR-physics, neuroscience), John Riddell (neurophysiology), Andrew Hart (reconstructive surgeon) and collaborating with the Bandettini lab at the NIH.

The project involves the development and optimization of cortical layer dependent fMRI at 7T, and its application to the study of cortical reorganization after peripheral nerve injury and recovery. The project provides the opportunity for highly interdisciplinary work combining MR-physics with the direct medical application of layer-dependent fMRI. The work involves sequence- and data analysis method development and optimization, running fMRI in healthy volunteers and patients, and supporting sensorimotor testing in healthy volunteers and patients.
