Applications are invited for an MRI research radiographer, based at The  Epilepsy Society MRI Unit at the Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy, Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire.

The post holder will join a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and researchers using a wide variety of MRI techniques, including advanced methods such as DTI, MTR, ASL and fMRI, and will receive training in post processing the clinical functional images and image interpretation. There will also be opportunities to contribute to data analysis and MRI protocol development.

Excellent oral and written communication skills, good inter-personal skills, a very high level of care and consideration for patients and research subjects, and an interest in research are also required. Postgraduate qualifications in MRI are desirable.

The post is available immediately and is funded by a grant from the Epilepsy Society to November 30, 2024 in the first instance. Starting salary on UCL Grade 7 in the range £36,770 to £44,388 per annum including London Allowance (pro rata if part-time), superannuable.
