Lecturer in Magnetic Resonance Physics

University of Sheffield

Sheffield, United Kingdom

Summary:
The role will be based in the pulmonary MRI group (POLARIS) in the Academic Unit of Radiology under the mentorship of Professor Jim Wild. The Academic Unit of Radiology is an active research unit focused on MR imaging. The main research
themes of the unit are neuroimaging, developmental and pulmonary/cardiac MRI.

The post will involve developing MRI methods, specifically image acquisition and pulse sequence development. You will implement novel lung imaging techniques on 3T and 1.5T whole body MRI systems for 129Xe and 1H MRI. The lecturer will
provide support and direction for ongoing clinical lung imaging research and generate high quality research output as a first author. They will contribute to strategic planning, development and management of MR imaging research in POLARIS,
Academic Radiology, IICD, Insigneo and cross-faculty imaging activities. They will develop new areas of MRI methodology and technology for transitional pulmonary imaging as well as developing new avenues of clinical translational research for
hyperpolarised MRI, especially Xenon 129. The lecturer will supervise PhD students in MRI Physics. They will secure research funding through career establishment fellowships and collaborative grants as well as building on and developing strategic
industrial collaborations with MRI scanner vendors. They will contribute to imaging research and teaching in IICD, School of Medicine and across the University.

The post will particularly suit candidates from a physics or engineering background who hold a PhD in MR Physics, MR Engineering or equivalent. Candidates should have a combination or all of the following: MRI pulse sequence programming
experience, MRI hardware development experience, image processing and numerical computational modelling skills.
