Postdoc / Research Scientist in Accelerated Quantitative MRI

The Job

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a post-doctoral /research scientist position in the Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Health in New York City. In particular, we are seeking a candidate with interest or expertise in developing pulse sequences and accelerated MR methods.

Our research group is focused on the development of novel MR pulse sequences, image reconstructions, and accelerated quantitative MR methods, such as compressed sensing (CS), MR fingerprinting (MRF) and machine learning (ML).

There are opportunities to work closely with dedicated musculoskeletal imaging basic scientists, clinician scientists from radiology, orthopedic surgery, endocrinology and rheumatology, as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists, and image reconstruction experts, and radiofrequency coil engineers.


Applicants must have an PhD in physical science, electrical engineering, 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 candidates to have excellent communication and writing skills.

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 will be initially offered for two years and may be extended based on satisfactory performance and availability of funds. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. We welcome both domestic and international applicants.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of recruiting and employment.
