Job Description

Are you interested in developing novel diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods for clinical application? 

The University of Leeds invites applicants for a research fellow position in the field of diffusion MRI in the heart. The project, funded by the British Heart Foundation, seeks to develop cutting-edge diffusion MRI-based methods for extracting novel markers of cardiac tissue microstructure. The developed methods will be applied in patient cohorts to evaluate their potential for improving diagnosis and staging of myocardial disease in the clinic. The central clinical aspect of the work will be complemented by validation using preclinical MRI, histology and synchrotron radiation imaging.

Cardiac diffusion MRI remains a challenging prospect, with many exciting opportunities for research. You will have access to Siemens 3T Prisma and Bruker Biospec 7T MRI scanners, and will join a stimulating and collaborative environment comprising leading scientists and clinicians.
