Postdoctoral/Research Scientist positions in Quantitative Musculoskeletal MRI at New York University

DESCRIPTION:

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a post-doctoral /research scientist position in the Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City.  Our lab, which is funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), focuses on the development and  translation of advanced, quantitative MRI techniques to clinical patient care.   

The candidate should have an excellent background in MRI methodology (MRI physics, including T1rho, UTE, multinuclear MRI, pulse sequence programming, image reconstruction, and/or image post-processing). The position will be initially offered for two years and further continuation are based on satisfactory performance and availability of funds.

We have access to a large patient population with musculoskeletal disease (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis).  There are opportunities to work closely with clinicians from radiology, orthopaedic surgery and rheumatology, as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists, pulse sequence programmers and image reconstruction experts (e.g., compressed sensing), and radiofrequency coil engineers who work at the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) and the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R) at NYULMC. The CBI houses multiple whole-body MRI research scanners operating at 1.5, 3 and 7T field strength, including a human 3T-MR-PET scanner, as well as small-bore systems for specimen and animal studies at 7T. 

QUALIFICATIONS: 

Applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in Physical Science, Electrical, Biomedical  Engineering, or related field.  Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with experience and will be based on New York University guidelines. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
