    Research Assistant/Associate in Microstructure-sensitised Perfusion/Diffusion MRI for Diagnosis of Vascular Cognitive Impairment
    [apologies for cross posting]

    This post offers an exciting opportunity to join the highly successful Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine (CISTIB) within the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK. CISTIB focuses on algorithmic and applied research in the areas of computational imaging, modelling, and simulation. The centre hosts academic members from the University of Sheffield as well as Research Fellows, Research Associates, PhD Students, and Scientific Software Developers, forming a cross-disciplinary team.

    The purpose of the Research Assistant/Associate post is to work on the OCEAN project, a collaborative project funded by the EPSRC, aimed at developing methods for the diagnosis of dementia in vivo and non-invasively. More specifically, this project focusses on the use of diffusion MRI for the characterisation of microstructural and microvascular changes in brain tissue by proper modelling of the acquired signals.

    You will have excellent research skills and capabilities, as well as strong programming experience in C/C++ and/or MATLAB. Additional experience in signal processing, diffusion MRI modelling, and MR signal formation would be an asset.

    The post will remain open till the position is filled. Please, for further information on this post see below. If you would like to discuss further particulars, contact Prof Alejandro Frangi (
