Course content

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which was invented at The University of Nottingham by Nobel laureate Sir Peter Mansfield, has had a major impact on medical science.

Our current research focuses on the development and application of new techniques and hardware for MR imaging and spectroscopy (MRS), often via multidisciplinary collaboration.

We are currently looking to recruit able and enthusiastic PhD students to work in MRI and MRS. Apart from following a program of research, students are given formal teaching in relevant aspects of physics from the School of Physics & Astronomy (if appropriate) and in more general topics from the graduate school.
