The Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) Unit of the Royal Brompton
Hospital and National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College was
established in 1984. It dedicates its research to the cardiovascular
system and runs one of the largest cardiovascular clinical services in
the world. Research ranges from basic physics and the development of
artificial intelligence methods to clinical applications and involves
a dedicated interdisciplinary team. The research programme in big data
and artificial intelligence in health imaging led by Dr Guang Yang
focuses on generating promising tools for assisting clinicians in
application fields such as cardiovascular image analysis, cancer
management and innovation ecosystem to respond to a pandemic.

We are now looking for a postdoctoral researcher (an MRI expert with
computing/AI knowledge) to join our group (https://www.yanglab.fyi/)
at National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London as a
Research Associate. The position is initially funded for 3 years with
potential extensions with a recently awarded UK Research and
Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship. The successful candidate will
join a multi-disciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists, AI
specialists, cardiologists and technologists and work on MRI sequence
development and image reconstruction under the supervision of Dr Guang
Yang at his Smart Imaging Lab. While cardiac MRI has already been
successfully applied in clinical research studies, it remains a
time-consuming method that is only available in a handful of
specialist research centres and is only applicable in healthy
volunteers and highly cooperative patients.  The successful candidate
will develop, implement and test advanced AI methods improving the
efficiency, clinical applicability and reliability of cardiac MR,
helping to transform this novel research method into a clinically
useable tool. The successful candidate will also hold an honorary
contract with the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust in
addition to the Imperial College employment. The post is also with
funded travelling and short-term visiting scholar opportunities to
work at the EPSRC Cambridge Mathematics of Information in Healthcare
Hub (CMIH), the University of Cambridge, The National Institutes of
Health, and Siemens Healthineers.

Candidate qualifications include:
•	Hold a PhD (or equivalent) in MRI, Computer Science, Medical
Physics, Bioinformatics, Bioengineering or a closely related
discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial
•	Knowledge of MRI, MR physics, MR sequence design and implementation,
artificial intelligence, medical image analysis, deep learning, image
•	Knowledge of research methods and statistical procedures
•	Practical experience within a research environment and/or
publication in relevant and refereed journals

Applications are open until 15 December 2021.
