Postdoc position in radiology and biomedical engineering USA

Our group’s mission is to develop and apply new MRI and PET neuroimaging techniques to better understand the physiology of the normal brain and to improve the diagnosis and management of neurological disease, with the overarching goal to alleviate human suffering.Our group focuses on arterial spin labeling (ASL) imaging of acute stroke and for cerebrovascular reserve, resting-state fMRI for both brain connectivity and perfusion, oxygenation mapping using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and fingerprinting, diffusion imaging, contrast-enhanced perfusion imaging, and 4D phase-contrast flow imaging. We are very excited to begin combining these advanced MR technologies with molecular imaging using simultaneous PET/MR imaging.

One important prerequisite for this position is an interest in rapidly translating technology onto hospital scanners to image clinical patients. A Ph.D. in radiology, EE, physics, biomedical engineering, or a related field is required. The ideal candidate should have first-hand experience in MR physics and/or PET imaging. Experience with pulse programming (in particular, GE EPIC) and reconstruction algorithms is also desired. Finally, familiarity with common post-processing software (such as Matlab, Freesurfer, FSL, SPM, etc.) would be helpful.

Candidates should be highly motivated, demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills, and have the ability to work effectively independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team. The Lucas Center houses several state-of-the-art 3T MRI, one 7T MRI, and a simultaneous TOF-enabled GE PET/MRI with an attached GE SpinLab carbon-13 hyperpolarizer.
