The Pre-clinical imaging facility provides technical and scientific support for internal and external users. We have a broad range of scanning modalities which includes MRI, PET/SPECT/CT, luminescence and ultrasound.

The post holder will promote the facility across the university, as well as to other research establishments and to industrial partners. You will also be required to lead on research and development programmes, to develop and validate new imaging technologies across the facility.
