Postdoctoral Positions in Medical Imaging
Postdoctoral positions in medical imaging with a particular focus on magnetic resonance imaging and microscopy are available in the Laboratory for Structural NMR in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center.
Expected activities focus on the further development and translation to the clinic of advanced MRI procedures for the study of degenerative bone disease and evaluation to intervention via image-based computational biomechanics.
This position requires significant interpersonal skills and ability to effectively communicate with physicians and medical staff as well as willingness and an interest 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 should have an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in physics, physical chemistry, biomedical engineering, or electrical/electronic engineering and a strong research record and excellent verbal and written communication skills. Candidates with hands-on MRI laboratory experience including pulse-sequence design, image reconstruction, processing and analysis are given preference, as are candidates who are US citizens or permanent residents.
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 email attachments to:
