Are you medically qualified and ambitious with an interest in research and Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance?

Do you have experience in cardiovascular imaging?

Do you want to further your career by undertaking an MD or PhD in one of the UK's leading research intensive Universities?

You will support and undertake research in cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) with a focus on ischaemic and diabetic heart disease. You will lead your own studies in this area, including methods development and clinical studies. You will also contribute to the work of the research group as a whole and have the opportunity to work towards Level 2 or 3 certification in CMR and complete a research degree, either as an MD or PhD.

The University of Leeds has a long track record in CMR research. The CMR research group in the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine Division is supported by major grants from the British Heart Foundation, Medical Research Council (MRC), Heart Research UK and other funders and our research is published in the highest-ranking journals including NEJM, JAMA and the Lancet. We have three dedicated research CMR scanners for clinical research based in Leeds Teaching Hospitals and a new multimodality preclinical imaging facility. The primary research interest of the group is the development and clinical translation of innovative CMR methods.

The current post is to support a British Heart Foundation programme grant that aims to improve the understanding of diabetic heart disease using quantitative CMR methods including myocardial perfusion and spectroscopy.
