[pmwiki-users] Research Associate position at UCL Institute of Neurology
n.hobbs at ucl.ac.uk
Fri Apr 1 07:45:17 CDT 2011
Applications are invited for a NeuroImaging Research Associate to join the
Huntington's Disease (HD) research group, UCL Institute of Neurology,
currently involved in a range of multi-national multi-site longitudinal
imaging projects of HD under the overall direction of Professor Sarah
Tabrizi. In particular, the post holder will be involved in the setup of
image analysis for a new EU-funded project investigating a novel therapeutic
with potential disease-modifying properties. This is an exciting opportunity
to advance volumetric and diffusion image-analysis methodology within a
rapidly growing multidisciplinary group conducting research into HD.
Applicants are required to hold, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in Image
Analysis, Medical Physics or other relevant discipline. Computational and
image analysis skills are essential, as is knowledge and experience of
diffusion tensor imaging.
Overview of the Post:
. This post is based in the Huntington's Disease (HD) Research
Group, a rapidly growing multi-disciplinary research team based in the
Department of Neurodegenerative Disease, UCL Institute of Neurology and the
National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
. The postholder will be involved in the volumetric and
diffusion analysis of 3-Tesla brain images for two multi-national multi-site
longitudinal imaging projects of HD, under the overall direction of
Professor Sarah Tabrizi. In particular, the postholder will be involved in
a new EU-funded project, investigating the feasibility of imaging and other
clinical measures in monitoring the disease-modifying effects of a novel
compound for future therapeutic trials.
. UCL Institute of Neurology has a strong network of software
developers. The postholder will be expected to spend approximately one day
per week developing new imaging methodologies at the UCL Centre for Medical
Image Computing (CMIC), under the supervision of Dr Sebastien Ourselin.
These methodologies may have wider application across the neurodegenerative
