Postdoctoral Fellow in Low-Field MRI: Machine Learning Image Reconstruction and Data Processing

Our Center invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the department of radiology at NYU Langone Health. The fellow will join a team working on the development of high-impact applications of low-field MRI.

Low-field MRI has the potential to increase the role of MR imaging in preventive health and broaden access to MRI worldwide. Our team is exploring new low-field techniques, technologies, and methodologies focused on actionable end-point information—such as brain atrophy metrics and lesion detection—rather than the traditional goal of improving visual image quality. We aim to develop and evaluate an integrated imaging approach in which data acquisition, image reconstruction, segmentation, and analysis are tailored to each other end-to-end. The project spans technical development and clinical application, requiring a high level of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Required Qualifications

  • PhD in physics, biomedical sciences, computer science, or a related field
  • MRI research experience
  • Programming skills, preferably in MATLAB, Python, Julia, and/or C++
  • Experience with PyTorch is a plus
