Postdoc and Research Scientist Positions in Quantitative Musculoskeletal MRI

Description

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a post-doctoral /research scientist position in the Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. The candidate should have an excellent background atleast in one of the MRI methodology [Multinuclear MRI (T1rho-MRI, CEST-MRI, 23Na-MRI and 31P-MRI/MRS), pulse sequence programming, image reconstruction, and image post-processing]. The position will be initially offered for two years and further continuation are based on satisfactory performance and availability of funds.

There are opportunities to work closely with dedicated musculoskeletal imaging basic scientists, clinician scientists from radiology, orthopaedic surgery and rheumatology, as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists, pulse sequence programmers and image reconstruction experts (e.g., compressed sensing), and radiofrequency coil engineers who work at the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) and the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R) at NYULMC. The CBI houses multiple whole-body MRI research scanners operating at 1.5, 3 and 7T field strength, including a human 3T-MR-PET scanner, as well as small-bore systems for specimen and animal studies at 7T.

We have access to a large rheumatologic and orthopaedic patient population at NYU and the greater New York City area and our lab focuses on both the development and the translation of novel, quantitative MRI techniques to clinical patient care.

Qualifications

Applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in Physical Science, Electrical, Biomedical Engineering, or related field. The candidate must be familiar with computer operating systems and programming languages, particularly MATLAB, C++, or equivalent. We also expect that the motivated candidates should have excellent communication and writing skills. Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with experience and will be based on New York University guidelines. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
