King’s Perinatal Imaging and Health

Ref. 003122

The salary will be paid on the CRF scale, £31,931 - £42,399 per annum plus £2,162 per annum London Allowance.

This post will be a fixed-term contract for 1 year (renewable up to 3 years).

This is a full-time - 100 % full time equivalent.

This post will support and enable the imaging of children, infants and foetuses in the Evelina Newborn Imaging Centre and to support the work of the EU-AIMS 2 Trials.

The €115 million grant, titled Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2-Trials (AIMS-2-Trials), will increase our understanding of autism and help develop new therapies to improve health outcomes and quality of life for autistic people.

AIMS-2-TRIALS builds on an initial investment to establish a UK autism research consortium by the Medical Research Council to better understand brain biology, and subsequent funding from the National Institutes of Health Research to identify the health and social needs of autistic people and their families.

EU AIMS made significant advances such as understanding how brain development, anatomy and function are related to symptoms of autism. AIMS-2-TRIALS will build on these discoveries by studying people through the lifespan to understand what drives good outcomes for autistic people and their families.

AIMS-2-Trials led by King's College London will create the first European clinical trials network for autism, as well as allowing for an internationally integrated partnership with charities, government agencies and industry to rapidly determine if therapies are effective.
