Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), located in Sydney Australia, is an international leader in brain and nervous system research. Through laboratory and clinical research its goal is to find the causes of and cures for neurological and psychiatric diseases.
Applications are invited for a Medical Laboratory Scientist to assist with the completion of ARC funded research developing efficient algorithms for analysing anisotropic and large deformation MR elastography experimental data. The project will involve developing, testing and validating methods for efficiently and robustly extracting tissue mechanical properties from MR elastography experimental data and implementing these in a user-friendly software environment. The successful applicant will be expected to take a lead role in software development, manuscript preparation and presentation of results at conferences. Appointment is for 6 months full time.
Essential skills: PhD in biomedical engineering or mechanical engineering with a biomedical focus; experience in soft tissue mechanics, viscoelasticity, elastography, image registration, and inverse analysis of elastography datasets and simulating wave propagation through viscoelastic media; advanced computer programming skills, with excellent MATLAB programming skills; excellent written and verbal English; good interpersonal and problem solving skills; excellent time management and organizational skills; ability to work independently and within a team environment. Must be able to work in an MRI scanner (i.e. have no MRI-incompatible implants or prior conditions that would preclude working in an MR scanner).
Desirable skills: Previous experience in image analysis, and mechanics of anisotropic and nonlinear materials is highly desirable. C++ programming skills an advantage.
Salary package: $103,020, including superannuation.
Only applicants with Australian Citizenship or Permanent residency will be considered for this role.
