DPhil (PhD) STUDENTSHIP – MRI Physics - University of Oxford
The Department of Clinical Neurology invites applications from Home and EU (fees only unless residency requirements are fulfilled) postgraduate students, with good degrees (first or upper second class honours degree or equivalent), for a DPhil studentship. The Department has the resources to support one student for three years in accordance with current Research Council guidelines.
The project will involve developing new integrated, semi-automated image analysis methodologies for a newly developed oxygen-inhalation functional MRI technique. The research will require the successful candidate to possess or develop a range of skills from physics and engineering, through statistics and programming to a basic understanding of neurophysiology and biochemistry.
Previous experience in advanced programming languages such as C or C++, and familiarity with environments such as Matlab would be a definite advantage.
Research activities are located at the Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB) at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Students are actively involved in a variety of programmes and seminars within the Department and more broadly with other University departments. There is a rich exposure to a wide variety of technologies, visiting speakers and the opportunity for travel to national and international meetings and workshops.
