Postdoctoral Fellow in Quantitative MRI

The Job

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join our interdisciplinary research group and contribute to development of rapid quantitative MRI methods. The position is funded by the NIH.

Required Qualifications

The ideal candidate is a self-driven, creative, and interactive scientist strongly motivated to acquire new skills and to perform interdisciplinary research. Preferred qualifications include a PhD or MD/PhD with experience in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and a solid background in MR physics and/or biomedical engineering. Knowledge of pulse sequence programming and optimal control theory will be considered a plus.

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 150 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.).
