Our Center invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Health.
The postdoctoral fellow will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers and physicians on a 5-year NIH-funded project to develop simultaneous 1H and 23Na MRI and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) at 3 Tesla for monitoring breast cancer therapy. The fellow will contribute to imaging protocol development, data acquisition, processing and analysis, and biological modeling for data interpretation. Motivated individuals will have the opportunity to engage in independent research within the context of the study.
- The position is open to candidates with a PhD in biomedical engineering, MR physics, or related fields such as applied or theoretical physics, chemistry, or electrical engineering.
- Candidates with strong background in NMR or MRI physics, data processing, and breast cancer imaging are strongly encouraged to apply.
- Experience in sequence programming with IDEA for Siemens systems is a plus.
- A record of peer-reviewed journal publications is recommended.
- Self-driven work attitude is a must.
