Vacancy: Research Fellow in Brain Imaging at University of Aberdeen

Postdoctoral position on MRI neuroimaging project seeking to characterise the mediators of fatigue in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

The Institute of Medical Sciences is seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and skilled Research Fellow with experience in brain image analysis techniques. This exciting post will be based within the state of the art Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre (ABIC) at the University of Aberdeen.

The Research Fellow will work with a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and scientists who are focussed upon unravelling the mechanisms of chronic fatigue, a salient issue across the chronic disease spectrum.  Specifically you will be responsible for the analysis and understanding of a multi-modal MRI brain study that seeks to characterise the mediators of fatigue in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

You will work on a MRI neuroimaging sub-project that is embedded in a clinical trial of non-pharmacological fatigue alleviating therapies (exercise or cognitive behavioural therapy) and will undertake image analysis and processing as well as report preparation and presentation.

You must have a PhD in medical physics or computing science plus the appropriate level of experience that demonstrates the relevant skills in brain image processing and analysis.

Informal enquiries to Dr Gordon Waiter (g.waiter@abdn.ac.uk).
