We are looking to recruit a faculty member to build an internationally competitive research program in small animal imaging of brain circuits underlying cognitive function and dysfunction, whilst contributing to high quality teaching. The research program should align with the strategic goals of the Glasgow Experimental MRI Centre (GEMRIC) and the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology.
The candidate should ideally have a track record in experimental neuroscience research and/or technical development in MR imaging or spectroscopy in animals. Experience in multimodal imaging, or combination with other in vivo techniques, for instance optical imaging, optogenetics, electrophysiology are desirable. Applications to disease models are encouraged with opportunities for translation through collaborations with clinicians at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QUEH).
The position will be based at GEMRIC. The Centre houses two Bruker 7T small animal scanners, with excellent in vivo facilities and technician support. Additional facilities for in vivo research are located in the adjacent Wellcome Surgical Institute. Opportunities for collaboration exist with scientists in the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (CCNi), the Centre for Neuroscience, and in the Imaging Center of Excellence (ICE) at the QUEH, which houses a human 7T MR-scanner.
Glasgow is a friendly and vibrant city with a lively music and art scene, excellent restaurants and is regularly highlighted as a top travel destination (Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, National Geographic Traveller, CNN, Guardian), with Loch Lomond less than an hour away and the highlands within a few hours reach.
Please apply online at www.glasgow.ac.uk/jobs (reference M00788) by July 15, 2018. Enquires may be made to Dr. Jozien Goense (Jozien.Goense@glasgow.ac.uk).
