Dear all

Please note the following 2 openings which form part of an exciting new collaboration between the Medical Radiation Physics group at the National Physical Laboratory, Teddington, UK (NPL) and the Institute of Nuclear Medicine, University College London, London, UK (INM). Feel free to forward to anyone interested. Closing dates are end of February.

A permanent position exists for a scientist with experience of iterative image reconstruction to work in the Medical Radiation Physics group at the NPL with opportunity for a secondment to the INM. This role will be to work with the newly established Nuclear Medicine Imaging Laboratory which houses a multi-modality SPECT-CT-PET system. The main focus of this work is the development of traceable quantitative imaging standards to support clinical nuclear medicine. The post ideally requires experience in working with iterative reconstruction algorithms, and development in C++. Experience using the STIR framework would be beneficial.

For informal enquiries about this position please contact Andrew Robinson (andrew.robinson at npl.co.uk<mailto:andrew.robinson at npl.co.uk>)

A 3.5 year PhD studentship on 'Improvement of tumour imaging quantification via partial volume correction' at the INM. The project aims to evaluate and develop PV correction methods to determine the optimal approach for clinical implementation, both in terms of the ability of the technique to overcome PV effects as well as its robustness to errors that are typically seen in the clinical setting. Applications are invited from motivated individuals who have completed an undergraduate and/or Masters degree in physics, engineering or computer science (at least equivalent to 2:1). Completion of modules on medical physics or medical imaging is highly desirable.
