Dear All

We’re looking for someone to join our team working on the development of a
new cryogen-free MEG system (see below).

Could you please pass this on to anyone who might be interested.

Research Associate , - Ref:1623142

*UCL Department / Division*

UCL Institute of Neurology

*Specific unit / Sub department*

Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging




Full Time

*Salary (inclusive of London allowance)*

£34,056 - £36,923 per annum

*Duties and Responsibilities*

The Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, UCL Institute of Neurology, is
seeking to recruit a post-doctoral research fellow in the field of
magnetoencephalography (MEG). This is part of a Wellcome-funded programme,
in collaboration with the University of Nottingham, to develop a new
generation of MEG system based on a optically pumped magnetometers (OPMs).
Optically pumped magnetometers are ultra-sensitive magnetic field detectors
which can operate at room temperature, and so can be brought closer to the
head than the cryogenically-cooled field detectors that are currently used
in MEG imaging. The aim is to build a multi-channel OPM MEG device which
can be worn on the head allowing the subject to move freely in an open and
natural environment. The prospect of an affordable and wearable system has
a number of exciting applications including novel paediatric and clinical
imaging systems.

The post is available from 1st April 2017 and is funded by a grant from the
Wellcome Trust for three years in the first instance.

*Key Requirements*

Applicants should have a PhD in Neuroscience or related area and strong
proven expertise in physics / engineering or related discipline. Strong
expertise in programming, ideally Matlab, is essential, as is an excellent
academic record with evidence of independent, creative work, a strong
mathematical background, expertise in modelling / simulation and experience
in M/EEG. It would also be desirable to have experience with one or more
M/EEG software packages and the use of different volume conductor models.
