The School is inviting applications for the post of full-time lecturer (non-clinical) for a period of 3 years starting as soon as possible. The post is funded by the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. The post will be based at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton. The post-holder will be expected to fully familiarise himself/herself with the trials running at the Department aiming to assess the role of stratified medicine in children’s asthma and will be expected to support the programme of research in the area of stratified medicine in children’s asthma within the Department. The research work could involve occasional travel to Dundee, London and other collaborating centres. The post-holder is expected to take responsibility for the management of an MSc in Paediatrics, a high-quality teaching programme, with support from the module leaders. This post-holder requires working in close liaison with Professor Somnath Mukhopadhyay, Chair of Paediatrics, and will be directly supervised by Professor Mukhopadhyay. The post-holder will also be expected to support the recruitment of patients from children’s clinics in Sussex, Surrey and Kent for clinical trials, as appropriate. The post-holder will be expected to write research proposals, produce high-quality research outputs and identify ways to disseminate research findings.
The post is suited to a highly motivated individual who is keen to develop research expertise in the exciting and novel area of the application of the concepts of stratified medicine to common childhood illnesses such as asthma and allergy, and who is also interested in developing expertise in postgraduate teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD in the areas of biomedical and/or epidemiological sciences, preferably with expertise in performing clinical research involving patients.

Salary: £31,342 to £37,394 per annum.
Fixed term, full time
Closing date for applications: 10 June 2015

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Researcher to join the Wellcome Trust Consortium for Neuroimmunology of Mood Disorders and Alzheimer’s Disease (NIMA). The post will be based at the Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre (CISC), Brighton & Sussex Medical School, University of Sussex, Brighton UK, under the supervision of Dr Neil Harrison.
NIMA is a 5-year research programme, with total funding of approximately £5.7M, designed to translate the new inter-disciplinary science of neuroimmunology to therapeutic applications in psychiatry and neurology.
The research programme will be coordinated across a network of UK academic centres (University of Sussex, University of Cambridge, Cardiff University, University of Glasgow, King’s College London, University of Oxford and University of Southampton) and two major pharmaceutical companies (Janssen Pharmaceuticals R&D and H. Lundbeck A/S). The scientific scope of the research will include clinical biomarker studies, therapeutic trials of new drugs in patients with depression and Alzheimer’s disease, and animal experiments, and is intended to develop new treatment approaches for these conditions.
Dr Neil Harrison (University of Sussex) and Prof Ed Bullmore (University of Cambridge) will co-lead MRI components of the Consortium which will be undertaken at Cambridge, Glasgow, KCL, Oxford & Sussex. The post will be based at the Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre (CISC) on the University of Sussex campus and will involve close coordination with Cambridge as well as each of the other imaging sites.
The research programme will use a range of advanced quantitative techniques including models of magnetisation transfer (qMT), T1/ T2 mapping and diffusion imaging (NODDI), as well as task-related functional imaging and graph theoretic analyses of multi-echo resting state fMRI in conjunction with peripheral and CSF immunophenotyping to investigate the neural and peripheral signatures of inflammation in patients with depression. Comparable techniques as well as histology will be acquired in rodent inflammation models (KCL) to facilitate back-translation of the human imaging findings.
The post holder will work closely with a postdoc based at Cambridge and other researchers at both sites to analyse all of the imaging data acquired from up to 150 patients and controls. This post offers an outstanding opportunity to be involved in a large multi-centre consortium combining cutting-edge microstructural and functional neuroimaging with deep immunological phenotyping to characterise the role of inflammation in the commonest mental disorder depression. The successful candidate will assist in the initial quality control of sequences across imaging centres and the analysis and interpretation of the imaging data. The post will involve close collaboration with other leading UK neuroimaging groups as well as groups working on functional immunological network changes.
Salary: Grade 6 or Grade 7

This post provides an ideal opportunity to be involved in both research and clinical MRI and PETCT at the Clinical Imaging Sciences Centre (CISC), which is part of the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, situated at the University of Sussex.
We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our small team and work alongside researchers and health care professionals undertaking research for both the University and clinical trials, as well as providing clinical services for the NHS and other sectors.
Previous experience in MRI is preferred. You will be required to participate in both imaging modalities and full training will be given where necessary. You will also be required to support undergraduate and post graduate training.
There will be a preference for a suitably qualified grade 7 radiographer but applications are invited for both grades. Candidates are asked to specify which post they are applying for.
HPC registration is essential, the successful candidate will also be required to undertake appropriate DBS clearance for this role.
For further information and to arrange a visit, please contact Jan Bush, Head of Radiography on 01273 876720 or email J.Bush@bsms.ac.uk
