The Precision Imaging Beacon at the University of Nottingham has a mission to transform medical diagnosis and personalised treatment through world-leading advances in imaging.
The Beacon brings together a range of disciplines covering clinical sciences, psychology and the physics and computational aspects of imaging. At its heart it combines cutting edge-technology in imaging, big data analytics, biophysical modelling and advanced clinical trial design to realise solutions for complex diagnostic and treatment needs in precision medicine. We focus on the most difficult to treat conditions, such as mental health and chronic diseases.
The PhD programme for the Beacon, which is facilitated by the Haydn Green Foundation’s support for training in Translational Biomedical Imaging, is now open for recruitment of students who will start their studies in September 2020. These are fully-funded, three-and-a-half-year PhD studentships with concurrent transferable skills training focusing on multi-disciplinary projects within the scope of the Beacon’s clinical translational activities and with potential industry engagement.
More details on the research themes and potential supervisors can be found on the Precision Imaging webpages.
An Open day will also be held on the morning of 9 January 2020 (optional), If you wish to join please e-mail [email protected]
Interviews are planned for the 3 February 2020.
Students will be co-supervised by two or more academics from disciplines spanning the research activity of the Beacon.
The Precision Imaging graduate training programme consists of a modular training in image acquisition, analysis, anatomy and biomarker validation.
Closing date: Please apply by 17 January 2020.
