An energetic, enthusiastic, post-doctoral research fellow, with experience in complex neuroimaging clinical studies, is required to run MRI studies in SVDs@Target, a major EU Horizon2020-funded programme to determine mechanisms of cerebral small vessel disease (SVD), a major cause of stroke and dementia. The University of Edinburgh leads (i) INVESTIGATE-SVDs, a multi-centre, MRI study of blood-brain barrier, cerebrovascular function and blood pressure and participates in (ii) TREAT-SVDs, a multi-centre trial of SVD treatment. The post-holder will have day-to-day responsibility for implementation, monitoring and analysis of advanced 3T MR imaging, including diffusion tensor and structural MR imaging in addition to the above methods. There is excellent opportunity to gain advanced neuroimaging research experience and, if desired, assist in cognitive and physiological testing of patients and project management. The fellow will work closely with clinicians, MRI physicists and image analysts in the Brain Research Imaging Centre, Edinburgh, collaborating with researchers at four European partner Universities, while benefitting from the extensive academic imaging and career development opportunities of Edinburgh Imaging.
The three-year post is available from 01/08/2016. For details of training and experience required please see further particulars. To discuss the post, contact Dr Michael Thrippleton (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Joanna Wardlaw (email@example.com).
