New doctoral training programme in biomedical imaging launched
Applications are now open for a new doctoral training programme in biomedical imaging which brings together two of the UK’s world-leading universities.
The Oxford-Nottingham Biomedical Imaging Centre for Doctoral Training, funded by the EPSRC and MRC, will offer an innovative programme of teaching and research in biomedical imaging (http://www.onbicdt.ox.ac.uk).
It takes advantage of imaging expertise at the University of Oxford and the University of Nottingham, in particular light microscopy, MRI, magnetoencephalography, positron emission tomography and image analysis.
The programme will provide a comprehensive training to graduates primarily from the physical sciences who wish to undertake research careers in biomedical imaging. All students spend their first year together in Oxford as part of the interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Cluster and remain part of an interacting cohort for the duration of their training.
Students will have a unique broad exposure to all aspects of biomedical imaging, from cellular microscopy to clinical radiology, and from hardware development to image analysis. Research projects will bring together complementary elements from different ends of this spectrum, allowing students to mix ideas across imaging scales and disciplines.
Professor Ilan Davis from the department is an Associate Director of the programme. He is one of a large number of group leaders from across the University’s biomedical, physical sciences, engineering and mathematics departments who will be offering projects as part of the programme.
