Job Purpose

To develop and lead a research programme in neuroimaging and / or translational neuroscience in animals, whilst contributing to high quality teaching.

The main criteria are research quality and potential to build an internationally competitive research group. The research programme should fit with the research objectives of the GEMRIC in the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, and ideally uses state-of-the-art techniques e.

g., MRI, MRS and / or other innovative imaging methods, such as electrophysiology, optogenetics, chemogenetics in animals.

Main Duties and Responsibilities

To develop and enhance the research base of the Institute by submitting research proposals, securing external research funds and publishing research papers suitable for REF inclusion in international journals.

To establish an independent research group in neuroscience and brain imaging.

To take responsibility for the supervision and training of postgraduate research students and / or research staff to ensure their effective development, where appropriate.

To participate in meetings and conferences to present research findings and thereby enhance the national and international standing of the Institute.

To deliver undergraduate and / or postgraduate teaching (lecturing or other teaching formats) in neuroscience or related subjects and supervise individual and / or group student projects.

Contribute to the development and design of aspects of the curriculum in a manner that supports a research-led approach to student learning.

To participate in assessment and examination processes as appropriate, (using a variety of methods and techniques) and provide effective, timely and appropriate feedback to students to support learning.

To undertake Institute / College level administration as determined by the Head of Centre.

For appointment at Grade 9 :

Direct the development of a research program in neuroimaging and / or translational neuroscience to complement existing strengths in neuroimaging within the Institute and where appropriate, more widely within the University.

Lead a portfolio of individual and / or joint research projects and secure the funding required to underpin the long-term growth of the research activity.

To play a leading role in the formulation of research strategy for the subject area.
