Postdoctoral Positions in Medical Imaging
Two postdoctoral positions in medical imaging with focus on magnetic resonance imaging and microscopy are available in the Laboratory for Structural MR Imaging in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center:
Position 1: Anticipated research is on the further development, implementation and application of solid-state imaging techniques for the direct detection of myelin in both high-field laboratory and clinical imagers. The ideal candidate for this position is a physical chemist or physicist with experience in solid-state MRI and understanding of sequence design and reconstruction. This research is funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Position 2: Expected activities focus on the further development and translation to the clinic of quantitative MRI procedures with particular focus on methods for the study of neurometabolism and vascular reactivity in the peripheral vascular system. This position requires significant interpersonal skills and ability to effectively communicate with physicians and medical staff and willingness to taking a leading role in translational patient studies. The ideal candidate is a M.D./Ph.D. with experience in medical imaging. This position is funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health.
Candidates for both positions should have an advanced degree (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in physics, physical chemistry, biomedical engineering, or electrical/electronic engineering and strong research record as well as excellent verbal and written communication skills. Candidates with hands-on MRI laboratory experience including pulse-sequence design, image reconstruction, processing and analysis are preferred. Although not required, candidates who are US citizens or permanent residents are given preference.
The Department of Radiology's Center for Advanced MR Imaging and Spectroscopy (CAMRIS) accommodates multiple whole-body MRI research scanners operating at 1.5, 3 and 7T field strength, designed for patient related research, as well as various small-bore systems for specimen and animal studies ranging from 4.7 to 9.4T field strength.
The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity employer and candidates of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants are requested to submit their curriculum vitae along with three letters of recommendation as attachments via email to:
