Location: South Kensington, London
We invite applications to join our dynamic and interdisciplinary TRUST research group, pioneers on transcranial ultrasound brain imaging, as a post-doctoral researcher.
As part of our group, you will carry out independent research across the fields of ultrasound, physics, mathematics and bioengineering to address some of the key real-world challenges for imaging the adult human brain through the skull with ultrasound at high resolution, and you will be encouraged to explore new avenues relevant to the field.
We will help you to become an international leader in this field and offer you opportunities for skill development that are relevant to the project and for your future career. You may hold a PhD and have post-doctoral experience or equivalent, either in an academic institution or the industry, and must be willing to work across departments and in multi-disciplinary teams.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be committed to performing original research, looking to develop an international reputation for the quality of your research, open to growing your research interests, and intending to write research papers, grants and fellowship applications if so wished, present at international conferences and engage in opportunities with your colleagues in the department and across Imperial College London.
Your research work will involve modelling wave propagation in high-performance computing facilities and/or on GPUs, imaging by means of tomographic data inversion, analysis of tomographic data and the development of new algorithms, which may include the use of artificial intelligence. You will be able to validate the developed workflows, mathematical methods and concepts in a fully-equipped ultrasound laboratory with tissue-mimicking phantoms and in in-vivo experiments.
For appointment to ultrasound post-doctoral researcher, you will:
- Hold a PhD in Bioengineering, Computing, Electronics, Physics, Geophysics, Mathematics or similar discipline
- Be able to provide demonstrable coding technical skills, and possess original and rigorous scientific publications in refereed journals
- Provide evidence that shows excellent communication skills
- Be willing to work across disciplines
We are looking for colleagues who are available to start as soon as possible.
The contract will be for up to 36 months.
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £36,694 – £39,888 per annum
