Postdoc

Who We Are

The Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) of the Department of Radiology at New York University School of Medicine has a strong and rapidly advancing reputation for collaborative innovation. NIH currently ranks our division in the top ten in the US by funding. Scientists at CBI have access to state-of-the-art clinical Siemens MRI scanners at 1.5 T and 3 T, as well as a PET/MR and a 7 T system.

About the Project

Multinuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) can assess metabolic and microvascular functions in the human tissue. Phosphorus (31P) MR can probe specific biological processes directly involved in mitochondrial energy metabolism, while proton (1H) MRI can quantify tissue perfusion. Impairments in energy metabolism or tissue perfusion (or both) occur in many diseases including type 2 diabetes, and can lead to complications such as cognitive impairment or limb amputation.

Our work focuses on the development and implementation of new multinuclear MRI/MRS methods for quantifying metabolic and microvascular functions in the brain and the skeletal muscle. The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to become involved in a broad range of projects that involve pulse-programming, data acquisition and analysis, RF coil-design and construction, and she/he will be able to test the developed technology in an NIH-funded clinical study. The postdoctoral fellow will also have the opportunity to pursue her/his own research interests.

Who We’re Looking For

A highly motivated scientist who works well independently within a dynamic group, is willing to assume a leading role in translational studies, and has strong interpersonal skills to effectively communicate with basic scientists, physicians, and medical staff.

Desired qualifications:

  • PhD (granted or soon-to-be-granted) in physics, physical chemistry, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering or related field
  • strong background in MR physics
  • excellent verbal and written communications skills
  • Matlab programming experience (beneficial, but not necessary)
  • Pulse programming experience (beneficial, but not necessary)
