Senior MR Physicist

University of Oxford

We are seeking a highly motivated Senior MR Physicist to join the MRI physics group at the Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR) to lead an exciting project aiming to explore the development of novel quantitative MRI imaging approaches for the simultaneous assessment of disease in multiple organs (heart, liver, kidney etc) and the inter-relationships between those quantitative measurements in different organs. You will report to the Director of MR Physics at OCMR, Prof. Damian Tyler, and be supported by the rest of the MR physics team, along with the large clinical group at OCMR. This is an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to lead the development of new MRI imaging methods and test their utility in disease, and to develop and validate model-based analysis methods.

You will develop new MR imaging and analysis methods for quantitative imaging approaches in the body and advise other researchers at OCMR on appropriate MR acquisition protocols and analysis methods for use in their studies, and work with external collaborators to deliver harmonised MR protocols for national imaging studies.

You will be required to hold a relevant PhD/DPhil with relevant postdoctoral experience and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in magnetic resonance imaging to develop research projects and methodologies in the field. Experience of working on clinical MRI systems would be desirable.

This is a full-time appointment, initially on a fixed term contract for 2 years with the potential for extension beyond that. The post is funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and is based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online; you will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post. 

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 30 June 2023 can be considered. Interviews are scheduled to place on week commencing 10th July 2023.
