This post will contribute to an established Cancer Research UK funded project run jointly between the University of Strathclyde and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Using magneto-motive ultrasound, our group seeks to establish a new imaging approach for the staging of colorectal cancer, with the potential to change the treatment for future patients with this common and life changing disease. Working with Dr Helen Mulvana (University of Strathclyde) and Ms Susan Moug (Consultant Surgeon, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde) and co-Investigators at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Lund, Sweden, this is an exciting opportunity for an engineer / physicist with previous experience in ultrasound to work on a truly multidisciplinary challenge.
To make a strong contribution to this largely experimental role, previous experience or knowledge of ultrasound imaging and image processing and an interest in elasticity estimation, ultrasound contrast agents, nanoparticles for medicine and / or magnetic fields will be an advantage. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as to help manage and direct this challenging project as opportunities allow.
For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Helen Mulvana (firstname.lastname@example.org)
