Postdoc in multinuclear MRI

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for an NIH-funded post-doctoral position in multi-nuclear musculoskeletal MRI research in the Radiology Department of New York University School of Medicine.

The candidate will join the exiting and expanding Musculoskeletal Imaging Group in the Department of Radiology. The imaging group consists of 11 MSK radiologists. The candidate should have an excellent background in the application of NMR to biological models and understanding of the concepts of NMR physics and experimental NMR techniques. Experience in musculoskeletal MRI applications is an advantage. Our musculoskeletal research focused on the development of novel multinuclear MR methods at high & ultra-fields for assessment of functional integrity of musculoskeletal systems in general and articular cartilage in particular. The candidate will also have access to interact with the other researchers in the Hospital for Joint Diseases (HJD) and department of Chemistry who have number of ongoing projects related to arthritis. We are looking for a motivated person with experience in MRI to assist in this research program. There are opportunities to work closely with a dedicated musculoskeletal imaging basic scientist as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists and chemists.

Our research facility includes several thousand square feet of dedicated research space, two state -of -the-art Siemens 3T Trio MR scanners and a 7T whole body MR system dedicated to research, as well as seven Siemens scanners used for clinical research, and a dedicated cartilage laboratory. A small bore system (9.4T) is also available at Department Chemistry for spectroscopy applications. The orthopedic and Rheumatology departments are among the largest and busiest in the country. The musculoskeletal MRI program is currently undergoing rapid expansion

Applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D) in Physical Science, Electrical, Biomedical Engineering or related field. The candidate must be familiar with computer operating systems and programming languages, particularly MatLab, C++, etc. Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with experience and will be based on New York University guidelines, Women and Minorities are encouraged to apply.

Please forward your C.V. including a list of your publications, and the names/addresses of 3 references to:
