Postdoc

About the Position

A two-years post-doctoral position is available immediately at the Center for Biomedical Imaging of the New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Center.

The position will be integrated into an interdisciplinary research team working on rapid multiparametric assessment of the hip articular cartilage with Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (see 2015 ISMRM #113 talk). The goal of the project is to develop a new non-invasive method for the diagnosis and staging of hip cartilage damage in femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). Concepts from magnetic resonance fingerprinting will be employed to develop a technique for simultaneous high-resolution mapping of cartilage proton density, T1 and T2 in clinically feasible scan time. The proposed method will be used to accurately assess articular cartilage damage preoperatively and impact management decisions, for example by identifying patients who will benefit from arthroscopy. The project team includes imaging researchers, clinical radiologists, and orthopedic surgeons.

Qualifications

We are looking for a self-driven, creative, and interactive scientist who is strongly motivated to acquire new skills and to perform interdisciplinary research. The ideal candidate is a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. with experience in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and a solid background in MR physics and/or biomedical engineering. Knowledge of pulse sequence programming and modeling of magnetization transfer effects will be considered a plus.

About Us

The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI), the research center of the NYU Department of Radiology, houses approximately 100 full-time research staff providing stateof- the-art facilities, including a 7 Tesla (T) and two 3 T whole body MR scanners, a 3 T MR-PET scanner and a fully equipped radiofrequency engineering laboratory. CBI space and infrastructure also support the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R), a new model of academicindustrial and interdisciplinary collaboration.

Salary/Benefits: The position is for two years, contingent on performance. Salary is commensurate with experience. Full benefits will be provided.
