Postdoctoral Cancer Research Fellowship in Small Animal MR

The Department of Radiology and Center for Translational Imaging at Northwestern University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work with a team of physicians and imaging scientists.

The position provides an excellent opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary environment and have close interactions with MR physicists, radiologists, oncologists, and endocrinologists. Access is available to four dedicated research scanners including 3T (Skyra-Trio) and 1.5T (Aera) Siemens scanners, 7.0T ClinScan MRI scanner (Bruker Biospin) with Siemens gradient system, micro-PET/CT, and a powerful computer-cluster. Close collaboration with the Northwestern University Medical School allows ready translation of technical developments into clinical settings.

The qualifications for a successful candidate should include:

1. A Ph.D degree in Biomedical Engineering, Physics, or other related fields or a M.D. in cancer research field.

2. Demonstrated small animal handing skills, research capabilities and inter-personal skills.

3. Substantial experience in Siemens MRI pulse sequence.

The candidate is expected to work on projects involving small animal MRI and micro-PET/CT image acquisition, and data processing using existing tools and development of new MR imaging methodologies. Potential research projects depend on the mutual interests of the candidate and the PI.

Northwestern University provides competitive salaries commensurate with experience. This position is funded by NIH grants. Northwestern University is an equal opportunity employer.
