The University is seeking to reappoint a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Radiology (Body Imaging) at consultant level to complement existing strengths in its research imaging facilities.

Candidates with a proven track record in imaging research are preferred (at PhD or MD level), but those with an interest in clinical imaging research are also invited to apply.

The Royal Dick Veterinary hospital hosts large animal imaging facilities with a dedicated research facility opening early 2020.
