Postdoc in Relaxometry, Quantitative Magnetization-Transfer Imaging, and MR Fingerprinting

The Job

We are looking for a team member who is interested in exploring complex spin dynamics by means of theoretical analysis, numerical optimizations of pulse sequences, and experiments. The postdoctoral fellow will work with a dynamic team to develop pulse sequences and models that adequately describe the spin dynamics generated by such pulse sequences. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop fast and reproducible quantification of biomarkers.

Expected Qualifications

  • PhD in physics, electrical engineering, computer science, or in a related field
  • MRI research experience
  • Programming skills, preferably in MATLAB, Python, and/or C++
  • Experience with pulse sequence programming (Siemens) is a plus

To Apply

Email CV and publication list to Jakob Asslaender, PhD.

About Us

Our Center, located in midtown Manhattan, is operated by the research arm of the radiology department of NYU Langone Health. The research division comprises approximately 120 full-­time personnel dedicated to imaging research, development, and clinical translation.

We focus on development of novel methods for rapid continuous comprehensive imaging, including but not limited to deep-learning image reconstruction and interpretation techniques, novel rapid MR acquisition and reconstruction strategies, innovative RF detectors and transmitters, new quantitative biomarkers for MRI and PET, and emerging MRI-based models of tissue microstructure.

We are a highly collaborative group and work in interdisciplinary, matrixed teams that include engineers, scientists, clinicians, technologists, and industry experts. We encourage collaboration across research groups to promote creativity and nurture an environment conducive to breakthrough innovations at the forefront of biomedical research.


Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R) is operated by the department of radiology at NYU Langone Health. This arrangement brings together a vast amount of human and technological resources in basic magnetic-resonance science (physics, engineering, mathematics) and clinical applications (radiology, medicine, neurology, etc.).

Timeline, Salary, and Benefits

The position is for two years, contingent on performance. Salary is commensurate with experience. NYU Langone Health offers a competitive benefits package.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of recruiting and employment. All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply and will receive consideration without regard to race, color, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, religion, creed, or disability.
