Current opportunities


Research Associate (12-month post)

Applications for this post have now closed.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral Research Associate in Tobias Reichenbach's group to work on an exciting three-year project in computational auditory neuroscience and neurostimulation at Imperial College London. The project's goal is to develop efficient complex transcranial current stimulation techniques that can aid auditory processing. More information and details on the application process can be found here.


10 x 3.5-year, Fully-funded PhD Studentships (2017-18)

Deadline: 09 April 2017

We are welcoming applications for October 2017 starts from high-calibre prospective PhD students.

Comprised of multidisciplinary collaborations between military medical officers and civilian engineers and scientists that address difficult research issues with a clinically-led approach, the Centre provides a highly stimulating environment for student research with our PhD programme attracting outstanding students from a variety of academic backgrounds.

Studying the effects of blast injury develops and advances treatment, rehabilitation and recovery from injury while improving mitigation and promoting understanding of complex trauma. Along with this, students will benefit from a range of additional training and development opportunities as part of the Centre’s PhD cohort.

If you are interested in undertaking a PhD in the Centre for Blast Injury Studies, beginning October 2017, please read the full details, including funding and how to apply, and/or contact cbis@imperial.ac.uk.

Summer Studentships

We have a range of opportunities to allow students to participate in real research within Blast including summer studentships and undergraduate/MSc project opportunities. Our projects are eligible for Undergraduate Final Year Student group projects and MSc Projects.

All enquiries can be made to cbis@imperial.ac.uk.


Scientific Study: Hearing damage from blast exposure

Dr Tobias Reichenbach's CBIS-based research group are undertaking an investigation of the hearing damage that results from blast exposure and our study will contribute to better aid and compensation for war veterans with hearing impairments. We have recently examined those exposed to blast that have hearing impairment and now seek healthy volunteers without blast exposure for a control study.

You will have your travel expenses (public transportation where possible and taxi) reimbursed, and will receive an additional compensation of £20 for each testing session. We will ask you to come for two testing sessions, which we can schedule for one day or for two different days, as is convenient for you. All study results, and in particular all of your results, will remain completely anonymous. For further details, see the study's Healthy Controls.

If you are interested in participating, please email Dr. Tobias Reichenbach at imperial.hearing.research@gmail.com.


3-year Fully-funded PhD Studentship (2017-18)

Applications for this post have now closed.

The Centre for Neurotechnology seek a PhD Student to work on a research project on traumatic brain injury (TBI), entitled AutoTRIAGE: a clinical, computational and biomechanical investigation of the feasibility of using vehicular event data recorders for assessing head trauma severity in collisions. The purpose of this research is to explore the feasibility of using data recorded by the embedded sensors on a vehicle to instantaneously indicate the severity of TBI experienced in a collision and rapidly direct the deployment of emergency service resources, maximising the likelihood of a positive outcome. The implementation of AutoTRIAGE within vehicles has the potential to significantly reduce the impact of road traffic collisions on the number of deaths and serious injuries.

Further information and details on the application process can be found here.

If you have questions about the project, please email the project supervisors directly: Dr Mazdak Ghajari (Dyson School of Design Engineering), Professor David Sharp (Medicine), Philip Martin (Transport Research Lab) and Mr Mark Wilson (Surgery & Cancer).

Informal email enquiries may be made at any time to cbis@imperial.ac.uk.
