Job Type
Imaging Beacon (Medicine)
£27511 to £40322 per annum, depending on skills and experience (minimum £30942 with relevant PhD). Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance

This is an exciting opportunity to join the research team in the Precision Imaging Beacon of Excellence and Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, who are driving the discovery and translation of new imaging tools that will transform non-invasive diagnosis, improve the outcomes for patients, and better evaluate the success of medical interventions. 

Our Precision Imaging Fellowship scheme is aimed at early career researchers from any discipline who have recently completed their doctoral studies and show promise for an outstanding career in medical imaging research. Fellows are expected to undertake a substantive piece of independent work that contributes to the aims of the Beacon’s research programme, and to complete a newly-designed training programme to support the transition to an externally-funded fellowship. Supervision and individual mentorship will be offered by a range of world-leading experts in imaging, clinical research, mathematical modelling and computer science.

Strategic areas

To be eligible, candidates should have a research background, skill-set and strong interest supporting translational and clinical imaging research in one or more of the following areas: 

•    Physiological Image Analysis and Modelling

•    Accelerated Imaging for Clinical Application

Each fellowship offers:

Two years of independent funding (which may be extended by one year, subject to performance), to conduct research and develop an externally funded fellowship application that will be held at the University of Nottingham.

  • Salary at a level on the R&T4a, RT4CTG or R&T4 University salary scale, dependent on experience.
  • Extensive career development support, including individual mentoring and participation in the FAST training scheme. 
  • Pump-priming research support of £10,000. 
  • The opportunity to spend up to 3 months abroad to develop international collaborations. 

Eligibility: This scheme is aimed at early career researchers. There are no eligibility rules based on years of post-doctoral experience, as this does not allow for variations of career paths across disciplines. Candidates will be assessed on their quality, potential and track record, relative to their career stage.
